Teresa Heinz Kerry: Election Was Hacked
Teresa Heinz Kerry hasn’t lost her outspoken way (Seattle Post-Intelligencer)
What made Teresa Heinz Kerry [sic — She’s now just plain Heinz. -ed.] so refreshing to some voters, and threatening to others on the 2004 campaign trail, is summed up when THK talks about her speech to last year’s Democratic convention: “Nobody told me what to do,” she told a Saturday fund-raiser here.
To every Democrat’s chagrin, with the probable exception of the Clintons.
Heinz Kerry is openly skeptical about results from November’s election, particularly in sections of the country where optical scanners were used to record votes. “Two brothers own 80 percent of the machines used in the United States,” Heinz Kerry said. She identified both as “hard-right” Republicans. She argued that it is “very easy to hack into the mother machines.”
To say nothing of the mother ship.
“We in the United States are not a banana republic,” added Heinz Kerry. She argued that Democrats should insist on “accountability and transparency” in how votes are tabulated.
Not very internationalist to be making fun of Third World countries. . . .
