Diebold Electronic Machines Malfunction, Vote for Other Candidate

Cynthia McKinney, running for Congress in Georgia’s Fourth District, has released the following announcements on her website (copied over here for ease of reading):

(Decatur) After one hour of voting, the McKinney campaign has received numerous calls that the voting machines are malfunctioning. Voters casting votes for McKinney are reportedly having their votes switched by the machines for Hank Johnson. This is not a new problem with Diebold machines. Lawyers for the campaign have been alerted and said that if this situation is not corrected, Cynthia McKinney for Congress will be forced to take additional measures. Two Hours Into Voting, More Problems Recorded With Diebold Electronic Machines, Pollbooks

Just after the polls opened, numerous problems with Diebold electronic voting machines were noted. At one Rockdale precinct, reportedly a single Diebold machine malfunction affected the performance of the entire sequence of machines assigned to that precinct. Additionally, one machine didn’t have a plug and sat idle. In addition, workers were not adequately trained on the use of the electronic pollbooks, resulting in unnecessary voter frustration.

When one McKinney voter realized too late that her intended vote had been switched by the voting machine to a McKinney opponent, the polling place official’s response was “she needs to let us know next time before she casts her ballot.” McKinney campaign officials want to know, what about this time?

I know it’s all silly conspiracy theory…I know! But I can’t help but wonder:

What’s the most unbelievable conspiracy theory?

  • A large percentage of the Democratic population of Georgia’s Fourth District has conspired to lie about the voting machines in a very organized and specific way
  • The same population is dosed on some strange Kool-Aid, or is in some other way experiencing an altered state of consciousness resulting in a mass hallucination.
  • The Diebold voting machines randomly started switching votes from one candidate (and only one) to the other candidate.
  • Diebold did something screwy with the machines.

Someone with some basic logic skills, help me out here…
