An article in today’s Seattle Post Intelligencer quotes Teresa Heinz Kerry as suggesting that the November’s presidential election may have been rigged
Seattle- COUNTING THE VOTES: Heinz Kerry is openly skeptical about results from November’s election, particularly in sections of the country where optical scanners were used to record votes.
“Two brothers own 80 percent of the machines used in the United States,” Heinz Kerry said. She identified both as “hard-right” Republicans. She argued that it is “very easy to hack into the mother machines.”
“We in the United States are not a banana republic,” added Heinz Kerry. She argued that Democrats should insist on “accountability and transparency” in how votes are tabulated.
“I fear for ’06,” she said. “I don’t trust it the way it is right now.”
