    Based on the Brenden Dilley/RBG retirement post above, I went to his twitter feed. He is kinda nutty, so I wanted to see what he said about RBG. A commenter posted a screenshot from the chans of this article from the Santa Monica Observer.

    Figuring it was a photoshop, I googled “Santa Monica Observer Ruth Bader” and got the hit for this article posted today. Still not convinced it’s legit but thought I would share. Could explain a lot of the wrangling for two senate seats by the dems:

        Yeah, some people in the comments section of the article pointed that out as well. Like I said, I’m still skeptical. I don’t even know if this is a real paper…could be a big larp. But thought it was intriguing enough to post. It could be, if the article is true, the fall today was something more serious entirely and that was just the story released publicly.

        It’s a weekly, if you read the ‘About’ page, so November 9th could just be the date of weekly release. The electronic articles could be running ahead of the print. Either way, the story is an anonymous source so take with a grain of sand.

        The cancer is not surprising. My mom, who was 84, passed away from cancer under very similar circumstances. She fell and broke her wrist and 2 months later she passed away. Doctor said body had been holding emergence of cancer at bay but the broken wrist somehow weakened her and triggered the progression of the cancer.

        All voting systems in the country, ALL of them, no matter how small or large the town, should be REQUIRED to print out a receipt after you vote, showing your voter number, and every candidate/proposition you voted on. “Oh, that would be too expensive for some places to implement”. FINE. You (the town or county) will get financial help, from the feds if necessary…. but you WILL have the required technology in place.

        • It’s easy to hack a voting machine to print an accurate receipt but register your official vote for the demonrat in the system though. Paper ballots, a public count and an ironclad chain of custody is the only way to secure an election.

            Yeah, that’s part of what I was thinking. Use paper ballots, they’re inserted into a scanner (where they’re stored), and you then get a receipt showing what the scanner read. That way you have THREE matching (if all is fair) records: The paper ballot, the electronic data the computer/scanner stores, and your paper receipt.

    • Somebody says:

      In Florida the paper ballots are counted electronically at the precinct. You bubble in your ballot and then it is scanned and the scanner counts your votes.

      The total votes are tabulated via a download of the captured data on the scanner. Then paper ballots are kept and secured, in the event of a discrepancy or the need for recount. Those paper ballots and the scanners are transferred to SOE office after poll closing. The data is captured once again directly from each scanner……numbers match all is good.

      The SOE should only be running absentee ballots. The early vote ballots should have already been counted. Each SOE should know how many absentee ballots they received, they are supposed to be logged every day when they come in, signatures verified, etc. There is usually a big push that arrives on election day, but somewhere they should have logged the total requested.

      Those absentee ballots and the provisional ballots once verified are the only ones the SOE should be counting. Once again the actual paper ballot is only there if needed for a hand recount.

      Every other county managed to count their election night or the wee hours of the next day. Broward has a long history of this kind of crap. This is voter fraud plain and simple.

      I don’t trust the machines (where they can change multiple ballots at a time, not just one at a time; and/or change things under the hood while presenting something different on the readouts).

      It would be a major bummer for me if they ever get rid of paper ballots – paper is all I do when I have a choice.

      I’d vote against dropping paper ballots if it came to a ballot initiative of some kind.

      From the lawsuit

      Voting in the 2018 General Election concluded November 6, 2018. Two days after voting has concluded, the Supervisor Of Elections is unwilling to disclose records revealing how many electors voted, how many ballots have been canvassed, and how many ballots remain to be canvassed. The lack of transparency raises substantial concerns about the validity of the election process.

Legal, illegal, multiple voters, whatever… just put your ballot here (because our poll workers are under scrutiny and it looks bad if they get caught filling out ballots)… Then the box is “found” a few days later, votes counted, and voila! 70,000 votes for the “good guys” show up.
