Karl Rove's Electronic Empire Of Fraud

Jill Simpson and Jim March are election integrity researchers who have traveled the country documenting the various elements of Rove's electronic election fraud network, guided by Ms. Simpson's past as a volunteer GOP operative directly under Karl Rove.

Jim March is a specialist in electronic voting systems and one of Bev Harris' supporters at BlackBoxVoting.org.

Together they have produced the first “big picture” outline of what the total election fraud network looks like, at least as connected to Karl Rove (which is most of it).

They are particularly concerned due to the passage of something called the “MOVE Act” in 2009.  This new federal law for Military Overseas Voting Enhancement purported to make voting more “efficient” for this surprisingly large class of voters consisting of military, various “contractors” overseas, consulate staff and the usual mix of US business people overseas.

The act specified new federal funds for new systems to support the MOVE Act, which requires that these voters have the option to both register to vote and vote electronically over the Internet.  No security provisions were put in – at all.  And worst of all, states are not allowed to put in security provisions more strict than the MOVE Act specifies if it slows down the “efficiency goals” of the MOVE Act in any way.

Scytl, an up-and-coming voting system vendor out of Barcelona Spain set up a series of sham US offices but in reality ran these critical functions out of Spain.

To fully implement “MOVE Act” election fraud, data mining companies would be needed to identify which overseas voters to impersonate – we have identified two including one with a notorious past as a cocaine dealer.  Political strategists would be needed to identify races and counties to target – we have located those as well.  Corruptable county election officials would be a boon to this scheme and we know how that works too.

We will be taking questions and doing a brief intro today at high noon, National Press Club

Michael Collins, "Rigged Elections for Romney?" OpEd News, October 22, 2012, http://www.opednews.com/articles/Rigged-Elections-for-Romne-by-Michael-Collins-121022-13.html."A group of independent researchers caught a pattern of apparent vote flipping during the 2012 Republican primaries that consistently favored Mitt Romney. A form of election fraud, vote flipping occurs when votes are changed from one candidate to another or several others during electronic voting and vote tabulation. Vote flipping is difficult to detect because the vote totals remain the same for each precinct. In one of several possible scenarios, an instruction is given to a precinct level voting machine or to a county-level central tabulator. The corrupted totals from precincts are sent from county election officials to state elections board and published as final results. The group's analysis is based on raw data from primary sources, local precincts, and state and county election records. The pattern of vote flipping raises serious doubts about the Romney victories in the 2012 Republican primaries in Wisconsin and the Ohio. Apparent vote flipping was demonstrated in the group's paper for at least nine other 2012 Republican primaries as well. The findings showed a consistent pattern of increasing votes and vote percentages for Romney in the precinct vote tally. The pattern emerges when precinct vote tallies are presented by candidate based on the size of a county precinct. Vote flipping gave Romney a 57,000-vote victory over Santorum in Wisconsin. Absent vote flipping, Santorum would have won over Romney by about 54,000 according the group's analysis.

Gerry Bello and Bob Fitrakis, "Employees of Romney Family's Secret Bank Tied to Fraud, Money Laundering and Drug Cartels,"Free Press, October 21, 2012, http://truth-out.org/news/item/12231-employees-of-romney-familys-secret-bank-tied-to-fraud-money-laundering-and-drug-cartels. As previously reported in by the Columbus Free Press, the Romney family, namely Mitt, Ann, G Scott and Tagg Romney, along with Mitt's "6th son" and campaign finance chair have a secretive private equity firm called Solamere Capital Partners. This firms ties to Romney's campaign and bundlers is already well documented, along with its connection to the manufacture and distribution of voting machines. What is not as well documented is a subsidiary of that private equity firm hiring employees of a failed firm tied to a Ponzi scheme that has a long history of money laundering for Latin American drug cartels and to the Iran-Contra scandal.
As reported by ThinkProgress, Solamere Capital Partner's subsidiary Solamere Advisors is a investment advisory group, providing advice to Solamere clients and boosting sales. Would-be corporate pugilist Tagg Romney is a director. According to the New York Times, all but one of its 11 employees came from the Charlotte office of the Stanford Financial Group, the US investment arm of convicted felon R. Allen Stanford's offshore banking and fraud network that comprised a host of companies including the Stanford International Bank, Stanford Capital Management, The Bank of Antigua, Stanford Trust and Stanford Gold and Bullion. Three of these employees, Tim Bambauer, Deems May, and Brandon Phillips, received incentive compensation related to their direct sales of securities linked to a fraud that brought down this banking network.

Free Press, "Does the Romney family now own your e-vote?" Gerry Bello, Bob Fitrakis & Harvey Wasserman," October 18, 2012, http://freepress.org/departments/display/19/2012/4748
Will you cast your vote this fall on a faulty electronic machine that's partly owned by the Romney Family? Will that machine decide whether Romney will then inherit the White House?

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 6. 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.
