There’s no hard evidence yet that I know of, but take the hottest Senate race of the year, throw in a few voting-machine glitches, add some shadowy SEIU workers, and mmmmm that’s good blog content.
As Sharron Angle’s campaign attorney, I am sorry to report that the Democrats and their cronies are up to their same old tricks, of trying to manipulate the election in hopes of skewing the results in their favor.
Two days ago, the Democratic Secretary of State announced that voters can be provided “free food” at “voter turnout events.” Harry Reid has been offering free food and, according to other reports, some Democratic allies such as teachers’ unions are offering gift cards in return for a vote for Reid…
What Harry Reid is doing is clearly illegal. Nevada law (NRS 293.700) provides that, “A person who bribes, offers to bribe, or use and other corrupt means, directly or indirectly, to influence any elector in giving his or her vote or to deter the elector from giving it is guilty of a category D felony and shall be punished as provided in NRS 193.130.”…
Now, this week in Las Vegas, at our election hotline, we received reports that some teachers’ union representatives were offering Starbucks cards to people to get them to vote for Harry Reid. It is even more disturbing and may be possible that they are using their influence and authority as educators to entice students on behalf of Reid.
Click the image below to watch the clip about alleged glitches in the electronic voting machines in Clark County which are causing ballots to default to Reid before the voter can make a final selection. Honestly, the first thing I thought of when I saw it were the alleged pedal problems in the Toyota Prius, which somehow always seemed to happen to drivers 60 years old or older. That doesn’t mean a glitch doesn’t exist in the machines, just that there may perhaps be an alternative explanation. (And if you watch the clip, you’ll see one is offered.) Meanwhile, Mark Hemingway chips in with the fact that the voting machine technicians in Clark County just so happen to be members of SEIU. What — you mean you guys don’t trust Harry Reid and the Purple People Beaters?
If it helps put your mind at ease, one of Geraghty’s sources says the race is in the bag. Heck, even I’m feeling optimistic about this one.
