I just wanted to post this article about the 2004 vote tampering in Ohio which decidedly handed the election to George W. Bush.  One of the 'coincidences' of the 2004 election and the 2012 election is how Karl Rove played a hand in tampering with election results in both elections by rerouting results to an election center in Chattanooga, Tennessee. In 2004, Ohio's election system went down at 11:14pm and results were rerouted to Tennessee, where  election experts Richard Hayes Phillips and Troy T. Seman say tampering evidence was proven in 13 of 25 counties reporting results after 11:14pm. Prior to 11:14 pm there is NO evidence of tampering in the 11 counties who had already posted their results.

In the 2012 election, Ohio's voting mechanism went down coincidentally enough, at 11:13pm and "ORCA" Rove's election database tried to reroute the votes again to an election center in Chattanooga, Tennessee. However, this time, the hacker group Anonymous claimed they were able to block the rerouting from taking place and put up a firewall that Rove and his merry band of mischief makers couldn't get into to, to change election results. Of course you've all seen the meltdown of Rove on Fox News as he tries to make the case that Ohio shouldn't be called for Obama so soon. It was quite a spectacle!!

Kos has stated there is no place for conspiracy theories on this website, but if he actually researched the facts relating to this 'coincidence' the facts would speak for themselves.  Here is a one more look at the Ohio Election:

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
