The first indication that something is wrong with the voting is when the numbers don’t match.
The Optech IIIP Eagle optical scanner claims it scanned 1219 ballots. On the poll book certification page, the poll workers checking in voters and handing out blank ballots claim they handed 1071 ballots to electors. On the Inspectors’ reports with the forged signatures, it is claimed only 981 ballots were handed to electors. If I believe the machine and the poll book, then the ballot box in Ward One was stuffed with 148 extra ballots. If I believe the machine and the apparently forged inspectors’ report, the ballot box is stuffed with 238 extra ballots. If I ignore the machine altogether, the ballot box is stuffed with 90 extra ballots.
Sure, mistakes were made. But really, and come on. This is from one precinct, a thousand votes, plus or minus. Accidents happen, right?
All of this from just a single ward. The first ward I bothered to look into. There are 311 more wards more to go.
And that’s just in Milwaukee, which (if I remember correctly) isn’t in Ohio or Florida. I know that Katherine “Pink Sugar” Harris is out of a job, but I wonder how Ken Blackwell is doing these days?
