Skip to comments.Romney-linked voting machine company to count votes in Ohio (Woo Hoo!)

Voting machine provider Hart Intercivic will be counting the votes in various counties in the crucial swing states of Ohio and Colorado and elsewhere throughout the country come November 6 even though it has extensive corporate ties to the Mitt Romney camp, and even though a study commissioned by the state of Ohio has labeled its voting system a failure when it comes to protecting the integrity of elections.
Reports of Hart Intercivics ties to Romney first surfaced in late September, in ... an Ohio web site which reported that a key investor in Hart was HIG Capital, seven of whose directors were former employees of Bain & Co., a consulting company of which Mitt Romney was once CEO. (Romney left the company in 1984 to co-found a spin-off company, Bain Capital.) HIG Capital announced its investment in Hart on July 6, 2011, just one month after Romney formally announced the launch of his presidential campaign.
Nor were those the only ties between Hart and the Romney camp. Four of the HIG directors... are Romney bundlers along with former Bain and H.I.G. manager Brian Shortsleeve, and, according to Opensecrets.org, a web site run by the Center for Responsive politics, HIG Capital has contributed $338,000 to the Romney campaign this year. Moreover, according to a report in The Nation, HIG Capital is tied to the Romney family via Solamere, a private equity firm that has invested in HIG and is run by Tagg Romney, the candidates son...

They are having hissyfits over this.
I'm worried that this could be shaping up as Obama's Plan B - when he loses Ohio and the election he'll Gore up the results with lawsuits and shenanigans and disinformation all in the hope of getting some riots going.
We’re living their heads rent free!
The Democrat Party operatives will commit every kind of election fraud known to man ,and a few previously unknown, accuse the Republicans, and file lawsuits everywhere when the “won” loses.
But if he wins by one vote teh Deemocrats would see no need for a recount!
They are setting up the lawsuit in Ohio:
1. Early voting
2. Billboards taken down
3. Wrong vote date sent to voters
4. Voting counts
There will be more to show a pattern of deceit.
So? Once the votes are counted in Spain by Soros’ people it’ll all work out.

RELAX ALL OF YOU!
Only TWO Ohio counties use Hart machines. Hart is not counting the votes and Hart is not owned by the Romney’s.
Hell (and I don’t swear) even Think Progress has denunked this story.
How could one even count all the ways that the democrats cheat. They cheat at every point in the process. Now they have stacked the SOS’s so that they can rig the final vote at the top.
They tried this talking point against W and wanted to my Ohio another Florida in 2004.
So many items floating out there today setting up the excuses for an Obama loss. It’s a very good sign.
I thought we had to worry about the Diebold voting machines .
I thought Spain was supposed to count the nation’s votes.
And it’s programmed to discount dead voters.
And it’s programmed to discount dead, multiple and convicted voters.
