Terrorist acts being carried out in Virginia against possible Democratic voters

Arlington, Virginia resident Tim Daly received a personalized phone call on his answering machine yesterday from an individual claiming to be from the "Virginia Elections Commission." The caller stated that "we've determined you are registered in New York to vote. Therefore, you will not be allowed to cast your vote on Tuesday." The caller then warned, "if you do show up, you will be charged criminally." That would instill fear into anyone's mind.

State elections in Virginia are supervised by the Virginia State Board of Elections (SBE) and there is no "Virginia Elections Commission." Democratic Party officials has said the GOP hopes to avoid being charged criminally by misidentifying the SBE, however, legal advisers to the Democratic Party have stated that it is a crime to impersonate a state official.

This is also a terrorist activity. Webster's says, 'terrorism' is "the systematic use of terror especially as a means of coercion." So we can all agree and without doubt confirm that what happened to Daly in Virginia was an act of terrorism. Period.

Daly has been registered to vote in Virginia since 1998 when he moved from New York.

The GOP has obviously gained access to records of voters who moved to Virginia since at least 1998 and are attempting to intimidate them by claiming they are still registered to vote in their previous states of residence.

There are reports of other similar attempts to suppress the vote in Virginia but only Daly has filed a sworn affidavit, and volunteered to appear in court as a witness. The FBI has also launched a probe, who knows if that will solve anything. Via Huffington Post.

New HBO Documentary, Hacking Democracy, available on Google Video

This new HBO documentary, Hacking Democracy, exposes the vulnerability of electronic voting machines. The film follows investigative journalist Bev Harris as she investigates the security and accuracy of electronic voting systems.

The Nov. 2 New York Times review says:
"Rigged voting in Louisiana? Say it ain't so. But it's not shocked-shocked you feel watching this; it's genuine shock. As the drama proceeds, adducing more evidence for the unreliability of the voting machines than can possibly be explored here, you might also feel flattened. Computers count around 80 percent of votes in America. The marketing director for Diebold, Mark Radke, who defends both the company and its chief executive (a major Republican fund-raiser who once promised in a letter to "deliver the electoral votes of Ohio" to President Bush), talks in maddening doublespeak and wears the arched-eyebrow expression of a silent-movie fiend. His Nixon-era nondenial denials turn the stomach."
