Posted on 11/08/2012 6:38:38 AM PST by Jedidah
WASHINGTON, DC Sources confirmed today that hundreds of thousands of military absentee ballots were delivered hours after the deadline for them to be counted, with preliminary counts showing that they would have overturned the vote in several states and brought a victory for Governor Mitt Romney.
Officials say the ballots were delivered late due to problems within the military mail system. Tracking invoices show the ballots sat in a warehouse for a month, then they were accidentally labeled as ammunition and shipped to Afghanistan. At Camp Dwyer, Marine Sergeant John Davis signed for them and was surprised at the contents.
I told Gunny we got a bunch of ballots instead of ammo, Davis told investigators earlier today. He told me to file a report of improper delivery and that the chain of command . . .

Duffle Blog tends to be a parody site, do not take this as real
This is a story taken from a faux news blog thats trying to be like the Onion.
If democrats were able to count on the military votes to be reliably democrat majority, then they would be raising all kinds of hell about getting those votes counted, but only if Obama had lost.
If would be a major case of disenfranchisement of their voters, which would cause the votes to be recounted, in all states that had close voter counts.
he Duffel Blog serves the men and women of the US Military with a daily dose of military humor, funny military pictures, and faux news. We take an interesting and funny look at military life. We focus on veterans, military stories, defense, politics (sometimes) and life on base with a comedic twist. We are in no way, shape, or form, a real news outlet. Just about everything on this website is satirical in nature.
Agreed. But looking at comments and thinking about this debacle, I sense one BIG difference between now and 4 years ago.
At the beginning of the 1st term, while many of us here knew all about this imposter WH resident, the rest of the nation either didn’t or were willing to give him a chance.
Now, beginning of the 2nd term, half the country HATES and DETESTS with a PASSION this pile of excrement “cic” POStus. With a HATE that knows NO bounds.
Link doesn’t work.
Please tell me that this is not true. I don’t think I can take any more. However, there is no assurance that this would have changed the election, even if they had been delivered on time. The miltary vote split in VA. I know of at least one military vote in my precinct in WI that was cast for Obama, because when the ballots come in on paper, we have to remake them on ‘official’ ballot paper (Bristol board) so that they can be fed into the machine. So, we don’t know that these votes would have changed the election.
Whoever (in the Army) who marked this shipment AMMO should be mustered out forthwith and should be first in the unemployment line. He’s too dumb to be in charge of defending our precious nation.

That is an idiotic, ignorant and extremely UN-HUMOROUS “story”, partly because it is probably true and partly because you are poking fun at people who defend the author and their family.
This isn’t real. Look at the author’s description at the bottom of the page. Suggest it be taken out of breaking news before too many Freepers race off to repost.
BS BS BS
Don’t post crap like this where it will be picked up and passed along as if it were true.
Parody or not, this post brings up a point....
EVERY SINGLE military vote...Every single person in our military that wishes to vote...These votes should ALWAYS be counted, no matter what!!!!!!!
These people’s lives are on the line a lot of the time depending on how an election goes.....
If even ONE military vote is ignored, disenfranchised or not allowed to be counted at any time, is a travesty of the worst.....
We don't need this crap.
“Satire” post. Mod, please move this to “HUMOR” or remove it before this crap fools more people.
It worked and everybody ended up short Nixon campaign handouts.
Jim received an appointment to a high position in the old Post Office Department under Postmaster General Larry O'Brien, who was himself formerly Kennedy's campaign manager!
Jim gave the appearance of being dull witted and thuggish, but over the years he managed to keep his job by doing his job, but he really was thuggish. One day he called me up and asked me to come look at his office ~ otherwise he didn't like me ~ and I didn't even work for him.
I looked in his open door and noticed a bullet hole in the double paned glass window behind his desk. He was waiting on the Inspection Service to come and dig the bullet out of the wall in front of the desk.
He thought it was funny ~ he had REAL enemies ~ and he didn't want me to miss out on this one.
When it came to postal business I never had a day of trouble with the man ~ he did know the business which is why he knew, even as a lowly dispatch clerk, where to send Nixon's campaign literature.
Over the years I heard of other such behavior but virtually all of it involved catching someone trying to do it. Can't recall a case of anyone ever getting away with it outside of Jim.
The truth is people try this ~ but more commonly the printer a candidate hires to do his literature will get lazy and simply toss it on the some back dock of the closest postal facility ~ which really is the wrong way to do it. It'll set there a week or so before someone realizes "hey, that's mail" ~ no, you don't get refunds.
Thanks for the clarification.
The world is upside down right now, even the absurd seems real.
