Election "Rigging" Tensions Rise With Questions On Reliability Of Paperless Voting Machines

A close election this November could result in a real "constitutional crisis" with both presidential candidates accusing the other of efforts to "rig" the election.

Just yesterday we wrote about how Hillary stoked fears that Russia may seek to tamper with U.S. elections to help Trump even though U.S. intelligence officials admit they have no "definitive proof" of such efforts (see "Hillary Joins In Russian Election-Tampering Fear-Mongering, Despite No "Definitive Proof""). The Department of Homeland Security also hinted at a potential need to seize control of state election infrastructure after reports surfaced that Russian hackers had managed to breach state election databases in Arizona and Illinois (see "Why Is The DHS Preparing To Take Control Of The US Election?"). Never wanting to be left out, Harry Reid also chimed in saying "I have recently become concerned that the threat of the Russian government tampering in our presidential election is more extensive than widely known and may include the intent to falsify official election results."

Meanwhile, Trump, rarely one to mince words, has already told Pennsylvania supporters that "the only way they can beat [me] in my opinion, and I mean this 100 percent, if in certain sections of the state they cheat." He also launched a page on his official website calling for supporters to "help me stop Crooked Hillary from rigging this election" by signing up to be a volunteer "Trump Election Observer." The volunteer form can be viewed here.

Mr. Trump is spot on with this voter fraud issue. It's been going on for far too long and needs to be stopped. He's asking for 7000 volunteers to work on election day to Watch closely.

I still say everyone that votes needs to show photo I.D. Way, way too many dead people vote.

All we need are receipts for the votes.
Then a real recount can be done.

The data can be manipulated and the receipt would not be correct. The only way is all election judges need to run tallies after people vote to ensure no problems.

Why weren't you this concerned when Bush won Florida???
