You know those electronic voting machines everyone is so fond of? Well apparently Mitt Romney’s family owns quite a bit of interest in the company that makes them!
Tagg Romney, the 42 year old son of the republican presidential nominee made headlines last week after he “joking” threatened to beat the breaks off of President Barack Obama after the 2nd presidential debate.
Now Tagg is back front and center after the shocking allegations that he owns an interest in Hart Intercivic voting machines, the machines which will be used to calculate votes votes.
That can’t be legal…
Through a closely held equity fund called Solamere, Mitt Romney and his wife, son and brother are major investors in an investment firm called H.I.G. Capital. H.I.G. in turn holds a majority share and three out of five board members in Hart Intercivic, a company that owns the notoriously faulty electronic voting machines that will count the ballots in swing state Ohio November 7. Hart machines will also be used elsewhere in the United States.
In other words, a candidate for the presidency of the United States, and his brother, wife and son, have a straight-line financial interest in the voting machines that could decide this fall’s election.
These machines cannot be monitored by the public. But they will help decide who “owns” the White House.
Yeah… that can’t be good.
Rewind to 2004, when Republican George Bush defeated the Democratic nominee John Kerry…
Some politicos still call into question the 2004 election for strange calculations that Diebold voting machines, who had openly supported Bush, came up with that November.
While most reports are that the machines are all located in Ohio, there are many others who believe that they are sprinkled all throughout the country.
Could you be possibly casting your vote on an electronic voting machine that’s partly owned by the Romney Family? And the bigger question is… if you vote for Barack Obama on one of those machines, will it be accurately counted?
Just a few things to think about during this shady election season…
