GEE… WHAT A SURPRISE? OR DEJA VU?
Today will be a short blog, because today, of course, voters in California are casting ballots in the recall of that state's governor in a runoff with Larry Elder. And already there are reports - in this case from KTLA Channel Five in Los Angeles - of some "irregularities"...
... irregularities such as people being told when they show up to vote that they've already voted, like this lady being interviewed (clip courtesy of V.T.):
So in listening to this story - and I rarely do videos here as most people know, but this one I had to - I had the sense of more than just a little bit of deja vu. I recall hearing similar stories during the night of the federal elections of 2016, and interestingly enough, from California. One lady I recall being interviewed back then was a poll worker who reported on a similar phenomenon of people being told they had already voted when they showed up to vote. Back then, the poll worker (another lady) appeared a couple of times in the wee hours of the morning, then we never heard from her or about the story any further. I don't know if anyone else here remembers hearing that story, and hence I file this blog under 'You Tell Me.'
"You Tell Me" because is this simply a bit of a one-off, a little deja vu? Well, perhaps, perhaps not if the lady being interviewed is any indication, for she claimed that a couple of other ladies had similar experience, and - surprise surprise - they were all Republican voters, and hence not likely to vote for the state's current governor.
So... reassure me here... this is just deja vu... right? It's just an "equipment issue," that ever-present glitch ex machina that has cast the shadow of its hanging chads ever since the Collier brothers brought our attention to the issue of the dangers of machines and voting fraud in their book Votescam, right?
... or maybe not...
See you on the flip side...
