    What's up with the Cook county voting machines?

    Cook County ballot box tries to cast GOP votes for Democrats « Watchdog.org

    “I tried to cast a vote for myself and instead it cast the vote for my opponent,”
    “This was a calibration error of the touch-screen on the machine,” Scalzitti said.
    “When Mr. Moynihan used the touch-screen, it improperly assigned his votes due to improper calibration.”
    I wonder if the improper calibration works both ways?

    What's needed here is not a "touch" screen, but a "punch" screen. Calibrate that, Cook County.

    Voting here has always been corrupt, Going back to the 20's when Cook Country and Chicago was Republican controlled, the local mob would blackjack voters into voting for Republican candidates, twice.

    The last Chicago Republican Mayor was Big Bill Thomspon. If you look up corruption in the dictionary there's a picture of him.

    None of which justifies what is happening today...Are you saying that it does?

    My point is it's something about this place that breeds corruption. When Republicans were running the show it was equally as corrupt. And Big Bill Thompson set the tone of things to come in Crook County.

    It's a feature, not a bug.
