Coming from Ron Paul’s website, I take this with a serious grain of salt. States tally and report their own votes. Obamao cannot dictate anything to a state’s electoral commission.
There is a link to the Western Center for Journalism at Paul’s site that leads to the article. The article says in 2008 they handled the vote tabulations for 14 states and 900 jourisdictions plus the military vote globally. It also says there was Congressional approval but it does not say when.
