Dead People Voted in South Carolina

The corruption in the primary process of the republican primaries continues unchallenged. Just as it happened in Iowa and New Hampshire, South Carolina was another example of why the establishment maintains control of elections. When fraud is not enabled through rigged voting machines, it is done by allowing dead people to vote.

In Iowa, after Mitt Romney was declared the winner, the republican party representatives recounted the votes and changed their winner. Rick Santorum was called the winner, even though there were votes lost in two precincts in that state. In this state, the counting of the votes wasn’t even properly certified. The republicans simply announced a winner; whoever they decided to declare as the winner.

In New Hampshire, again dead people voted and the accounting of the votes was even less clear. According to Bev Harris, from BlackboxVoting.org, an organization that monitors the fair accounting of votes, especially those counted with Diebold machines, warned about voting fraud in this northern state as well as in South Carolina. In our article Fair Elections? Not if Corporations Control the Vote Count, we exposed how elections are remotely controlled at  ClarityElections.com. The SOE software that is used to “count” the votes allows for the easy alteration of the totals. Mrs. Harris warned that after SCYTL and SOE systems merged, people would have to trust one single source for counting the votes, “an Internet voting system controlled by SCYTL, with a results reporting system also controlled by SCYTL.”

Today, WTOC 11 reports that according to the state of South Carolina’s Attorney General some 953 ballots cast by voters actually belonged to dead folks. “Already, there has been some question into folks who cast their ballots on Saturday. South Carolina’s Attorney General, Alan Wilson has notified the U.S. Justice Department of potential voter fraud. Wilson says an analysis found 953 ballots cast by voters were people who are listed as dead. He has asked the State Law Enforcement Division to investigate.”

The level of fraud is such in these primary elections that many in the mainstream believe such fraud is a wide open attempt to steal the election from the real winning candidate. In his article Iowa Vote Fraud Official, Jeffrey Phelps explains how the establishment is working to avoid a more influential role for republican candidate Ron Paul. This all happens, says Phelps “as Iowa GOP ‘officials’ purposely disrupt and permanently invalidate the 2012 Iowa Caucus.” According to him, the official caucus website in Iowa publicly states that the caucus results can never be officially certified, because 8 different precincts showed signs of fraud that included missing votes and stories that changed every time someone challenged them.

But instead of dedicating time and resources to investigating this fraud, republican party officials have simply decided to ignore them and move on. In fact, says Phelps “for the first time in history, the Iowa GOP decided to change the final vote count to a “Secret location” for what was claimed to be security concerns.” This action did not prevent the fraud, however. Several voters in the caucus publicly complained that the number of votes in several precincts, as reported by party officials, did not correspond to the number of Iowans they had counted at the voting place.

How can americans trust their election systems if voting cannot be certified as legitimate and party officials refuse to investigate clear examples of fraud and vote manipulation? It simply cannot be trusted.

Meanwhile, the voting fraud continued  in New Hampshire, where the attorney general also probed voter fraud as activists got ballots as dead people because they weren’t  ID’ed. According to Mark Hayward from UnionLeader.com, Associate Attorney General Richard Head confirmed his office had learnt about the possible fraud on election day and immediately began investigating. “That investigation is ongoing,” he said. “Based on the information received on Election Day and the information on the video, we are undertaking a comprehensive review of voting procedures with the Secretary of State,” reports UnionLeader.com.

These cases of fraud as just the tip of the iceberg. Dozens of cases have been reported by local media, but they have been widely ignored by their main stream colleagues, who have limited themselves to report what the Republican Party establishment says. In most cases, proven cases of irregularities have been deemed as insignificant by news networks.

Back in South Carolina, the fraud extends beyond the limits of anything seen in Iowa and New Hampshire. According to Brandon Turbeville, from Activist Post,  people who witnessed the certification of the vote are now questioning if the results are the consequence of voter fraud. “Although no one is pointing fingers at the Gingrich campaign, or any other campaign at this point, the anomalies that are arising from the accounts of eyewitnesses call into question the certainty and the credibility of the final count in South Carolina,” reports Tuberville.

Some of the most contested precincts include Pickens County. It is here where voter Chris Lawton suspects the counting procedure did not follow established guidelines and therefore the results are questionable. Mr. Lawton was kept away from the room where the counting was actually done. He was asked to remain vigilant outside of the room. But when he questioned where were the votes coming from, he was simply told some 746 votes had been brought in early in the morning, when no one was watching. Mr. Lawton was then asked to leave the secured counting room.

I guess George Carlin was right, wasn’t he? Warning: Adult Language.

 

Until when will Americans be like those described by George Carling?

    Well folks, there you have it. Corruption is first. How long before the pitch forks, rails, feathers and buckets of tar make their collective appearance? This spectacle is growing worse each time there is a vote.I think all the CO2 in the air is rotting the brains of the candidates, or so it seems.
