West Virginia voting machines flipping Obama votes to McCain

Reported by Chrish - October 19, 2008 -

Now will we hear about this and other incidents for days or weeks on end on FOX and Friends? My guess is no way, because as the article says, "In both counties, Republicans are responsible for overseeing elections. Both county clerks said the problem is isolated." The FOX double standard applies.

The West Virginia Gazette reports

"Three Putnam County voters say electronic voting machines changed their votes from Democrats to Republicans when they cast early ballots last week.

This is the second West Virginia county where voters have reported this problem. Last week, three voters in Jackson County told The Charleston Gazette their electronic vote for "Barack Obama" kept flipping to "John McCain".

As noted above, the elections clerks dismissed the problems, and


"also blamed voters for not being more careful.

"People make mistakes more than machines," said Jackson County Clerk Jeff Waybright.

Shelba Ketchum, a 69-year-old nurse retired from Thomas Memorial Hospital, described what happened Friday at the Putnam County Courthouse in Winfield.

"I pushed buttons and they all came up Republican," she said. "I hit Obama and it switched to McCain. I am really concerned about that. If McCain wins, there was something wrong with the machines.

"I asked them for a printout of my votes," Ketchum said. "But they said it was in the machine and I could not get it. I did not feel right when I left the courthouse. My son felt the same way."

FOX will likely continue pushing the storyline that Democrats and Obama supporters are commiting fraud with multiple registrations, and will also likely continue to ignore actual cases of votes being stolen from Democrats by corrupted, unverifiable electronic machines. IOKIYAR.
