Stephanie Miller’s interview with Rick Ungar regarding Ungar’s article about the Romney Family ties to the voting machine company, Hart Intercivic:
You can read Rick Ungar’s original piece here (and you should because it’s fascinating, informative, and scary). The story boils down to the Romney family, via Tagg Romney, having an interest in a company which provides Ohio with voting machines that will be used in the presidential election, and in particular, they will be used in Hamilton County, the location of Cincinnati.
According to Nate Silver, Ohio has a 50 percent chance of determining the outcome of this election.
You have to ask yourself why anyone in the Romney family would put themselves in such a position, especially since we know, and they know that we know, that modern Republicans just love to steal them some elections.
This should certainly be illegal as hell.
UPDATE October 24:
Mainstream media is avoiding this story. Because they’re gutless. Huge big thing continues to brew however, and you can read an update to Rick Ungar’s article on page 3 of his original piece, an update which points to a situation that’s actually worse than he thought when he wrote the piece. however, it seems that Ungar is unwilling to assign any motivations or possible guilt to anyone, probably because he values his job. That is not to say that it did not take some huge cojones to write the article to begin with, because it did.
Salon.com also has a piece up on this topic.
This is going to be a very interesting election, and you can bet that all eyes will be on Hamilton County, Ohio and the Hart Intercivic voting machines.
