BREITBART BIG GOVERNMENT “VIDEO: MACHINE SWITCHES VOTES from REPUBLICAN to DEMOCRAT IN IL” by JOEL B. POLLAK


Video: Machine Switches Votes from Republican to Democrat in IL


Video has emerged from Illinois of a “calibration error” that causes voting machines to switch votes from Republican to Democrat. The video, posted on YouTube, purportedly shows voting machines in the public library in Moline, IL registering votes as Democrat when the Republican is clearly the intended choice.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=YtbqebpV9vY

Several voters in Rock Island County have already claimed publicly about similar problems with local voting machines in early voting. One local voter, Christina Kirk, told local NBC News affiliate KWQC 6 last week: “When I went to cast my vote and touch the screen for my Republican candidate, the Democrat candidate was the one that would pop up with my x, even though I pressed the Republican candidate.”

The YouTube footage is the first visual report of the alleged problem with the voting machines. The error appears to occur when the voter’s finger is slightly off center in the Republican box, which appears below the Democrat box. It is apparently still possible to vote for the Republican candidate, and it is possible for a vigilant voter to correct the mistake and vote again, but a voter in a hurry might easily register a mistaken vote for the Democrat by mistake and fail to notice. The problem seems to recur throughout the ticket of races. (No test involving a voter trying to choose the Democratic candidate and selecting the Republican instead is shown.)

Former Rep. Bobby Schilling, who is running for his former seat in a district redrawn by Democrats after 2010, has held a press conference to tell reporters he that has heard many similar complaints throughout the county. The complaints mirror those of voters in Cook County, on the other side of the state, where GOP state representative candidate Jim Moynihan tried to vote for himself and the machine cast his vote for his opponent.

The Cook County Clerk’s office told non-profit monitor Illinois Watchdog that the voting machine experienced a “calibration error” that “improperly assigned” Moynihan’s vote. A similar calibration error seems to be at issue in Rock Island County. Schilling claimed last week to have received “17 calls of people saying the exact same thing.”

60 Minutes STOCK Act Followup Sends Warning Signal to Congress


After being featured Tuesday on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, Breitbart News contributor and Government Accountability Institute President Peter Schweizer once again found himself the focus of national media in a 60 Minutes Sunday report highlighting his work uncovering congressional insider trading and championing the Stop Trading On Congressional Knowledge (STOCK) Act to ban it.

In 2011, 60 Minutes’ veteran reporter Steve Kroft ran an investigative report based on Schweizer’s New York Times bestselling book, Throw Them All Out.

“A year ago he began working on a book about soft corruption in Washington with a team of eight student researchers who reviewed financial disclosure records,” said Kroft in the original 2011 CBS 60 Minutes report. “The results became a jumping off point for our own story, and we have independently verified the material we used.”

Kroft won the Joan Shorenstein Barone Award for excellence in Washington-based journalism for the report. Kroft thanked Schweizer at the awards ceremony and made a rare joint interview appearance with Schweizer on MSNBC.

After the release of Schweizer’s book and the award-winning 60 Minutes segment it sparked—as well as at least 26 articles by Breitbart News published on the subject—President Obama included the issue in his 2012 States of the Union Address. Eventually, Congress passed the bill in an overwhelming bipartisan vote of 417-2 in the House and 96-3 in the Senate.

Two weeks ago, however, Congress gutted the bill by killing a key provision that would have put already publicly available financial disclosure records of federal officials in an online format to increase transparency.

Sunday night, Steve Kroft took to the airwaves to hit back.

“Our 2011 report shamed Congress into passing the STOCK Act,” said Kroft. “But earlier this month, Congress quietly repealed parts of the law.”

Kroft’s 60 Minutes Sunday update featuring Peter Schweizer may have telegraphed to members of Congress a warning of sorts: neither he nor Schweizer are finished reporting on or exposing instances of insider trading and self-enrichment by members of Congress or their staffs.
