Conflict of Interest: Romney Family Invests in Vote Counting Machines

Updated on October 21, 2012

Tagg Romney's Son Invests in Electronic Voting Machines

Why is this significant?

Let's see... The biggest reasons are that (a), the voting machines in question, leave behind NO paper trail and cannot be accurately double-checked when it tally's votes, and (b) the machines are to reside in Ohio, a MAJOR swing state in every election. A state in fact, that is probably due to send most of it's votes to Ron Paul, which will enter a win for Romney either way.

Though what is interesting about this move, is what it says about the Romney campiagn. There's only one of two scenario's that could be taking place here. Either Mitt know's that it is completely a Conflict of Interest for any of his family or friends to have anything to do with voting machines, especially so close to the election, and he just DOESN'T CARE. Or (b), Mitt doesn't know what his son is up, and doesn't realize how much his actions are going to drastically hurt his chance of winning the election.

At that thought, I have to correct myself, for all the friends and followers I have, who would whisper to me: It could be another dog and pony show, set up to make sure that Obama wins the re-election. You never really know.

How do you feel about Tagg Romney's investment into Ohio Voting Machines?

This is such a crucial time for anyone campaigning for President, why do you think Tagg made the voting machine investment so near election season?

      This is definitely a non issue.

      If it is an issue at all, then you have to look at the ownership of all the voting machines in the country.

      My biggest issue is the failed public record of president Obama, and why he spent this entire year campaigning, fund raising back and forth across the country, and playing golf instead of implementing some of these plans that are in his new election campaign promises in 2012?

      This should be everyone's big issue for this election.

      Haha, this certainly isn't my "biggest" issue with the Romney campaign. Though it is an important issue none the less. =)

      I am concerned that this is your biggest issue in the campaign.

      I am concerned about this "investment" made by Tagg. I don't think any family member of any candidate should have any kind of vested interest in any of the voting documentation.

      Anything that doesn't go exactly as planned will spawn conspiracy theories and we have already proved that we cannot get through a presidential election without a state having a voting problem.

      With many reports stating that Mitt has to win Ohio if he is to win the election this adds to my concern.
