    MADISON — You might be forgiven for thinking John Washburn is paranoid. Plenty of people do, Washburn admits with some humor. The Germantown man, who tests computer software for a living, estimates that, when he gets to discussing the perils of electronic voting machines, about 70 percent of people think just that. Twenty percent think there might be something to his worries, Washburn said. And about 10 percent — those who do some digging — start to believe. “Quite frankly, I’m not really concerned by (being called paranoid), because it’s highly correlated with how much people have checked my claims,”...

    Here’s another of those quiet, subtle, but very dangerous little stories that has somehow slipped past all the mainstream media outlets. The United States of America has a brand new private VOTE COUNTING company that the Obama administration has personally handpicked. The company is called Scytl and it is based in Michelle Obama’s most favorite vacation spot, Barcelona, Spain. Forget the fact that Barack is once again providing jobs for people in another country; there are much bigger fish to fry in this story.
  • Speed of Iran vote count called suspicious

    CAIRO – How do you count almost 40 million handwritten paper ballots in a matter of hours and declare a winner? That's a key question in Iran's disputed presidential election. International polling experts and Iran analysts said the speed of the vote count, coupled with a lack of detailed election data normally released by officials, was fueling suspicion around President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's landslide victory. Iran's supreme leader endorsed the hard-line president's re-election the morning after Friday's vote, calling it a "divine assessment" and appearing to close the door on challenges from Iran's reformist camp. But on Monday, after two days...

    BAGHDAD, Iraq, Feb. 3 - Preliminary election returns released Thursday by Iraqi authorities showed that 72 percent of the 1.6 million votes counted so far from Sunday's election went to an alliance of Shiite parties dominated by religious groups with strong links to Iran. Only 18 percent went to a group led by Prime Minister Ayad Allawi, a secular Shiite who favors strong ties to the United States. Few votes went to Sunni candidates. Although the early votes were drawn only from Baghdad and from five southern provinces where the Shiite parties were expected to score strongly, and from only...

    Numbers are rolling in from about 30,000 polling stations that were set up across Iraq. Voters marked ballots that, in the case of the national assembly race, contained the names of 111 political slates vying for a portion of 275 seats. The completed ballots were placed in translucent plastic boxes that allowed voters to see the ballots but not read them. Transparent boxes were deemed too revealing, opaque boxes too secretive. On Sunday, it was clear that Iraqi voters appreciated the tactile nature of the process. In many cases, children watched as their parents marked the ballots and placed them...

    Friends, This morning, Congressional Democrats return to their obstructionist habits of wasting American taxpayer resources on grandstanding for their Left-Wingnuts. California Senator Barabra Boxer (D) is set to object to the Ohio Electoral Votes, on what basis, nobody knows. But the result will be the futile delay of the confirmation process for Bush's 2nd term, returning the Senate to its chamber for a wasted debate on the subject. Meanwhile, other Democrats prepare their assault on Bush's appointment of Gonzales, intended to replace our nations retiring Attorney General, again, wasting taxpayer resources for partisan political purposes. I started the New Year...

    ... Once we knew about the under staffing problem, we could start to understand why the ballots have not been counted. For our sources also told us that Secretary Dan did not employ even one person who either attended a Christian school or was home schooled in a Christian home. So, the problem is that Secretary Dan needs more help. He needs a lot more help, for it is becoming more and more clear that he does not have anyone in his office that can count past ten without taking off his or her shoes and even with his or...
  • Kerry campaign lawyers checking Ohio vote

    CLEVELAND (AP) — Lawyers with John Kerry's presidential campaign are in Ohio on what they describe as a "fact-finding mission" following the Democrat's election loss to President Bush last week. Dan Hoffheimer, the statewide counsel for the Kerry campaign, said they are not trying to challenge the election but are only carrying out Kerry's promise to make sure that all the votes in Ohio are counted. "We're not expecting to change the outcome of the election," Hoffheimer said. In unofficial returns, Bush outpolled Kerry by 136,000 votes in Ohio. Hoffheimer said the goal is to identify any voting problems and...

    Provisional ballots in Bernalillo County are being rejected at a rate higher than earlier estimates. And that makes it even more unlikely that John Kerry can overtake President Bush in New Mexico. As of Tuesday evening, Bernalillo County election officials working under the watchful eye of Republican and Democrat observers had reviewed about 9,000 of the approximately 13,000 provisional and in-lieu-of ballots cast in last week's election.

    NEW YORK - News organizations will be relying on The Associated Press for a quick and accurate count of votes cast in Tuesday's elections, from top of the ticket races like president, Senate and governor, down through state legislature. The AP will use a network of nearly 5,000 stringers, who will be stationed at county election centers in every state. They will phone in results to one of several vote entry centers, where clerks will enter the numbers into AP's computerized tabulation system. Those returns, from about 6,000 races in all, will then be delivered to newspapers, Web sites and...
