Conflict of Interest: Romney Family Invests in Vote Counting Machines
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.
