Black Box Voting : Citizen Reports from the Front Lines: (CO) 2/05 - Shaken caucus official reports ballot stuffing
------------------------------
------------------------------

Posted by Bev Harris on Tuesday, February 5, 2008 - 9:40 pm:

I just interviewed a gentleman in Boulder, Colorado who provided a detailed report. He was one of the caucus officials (chairman? captain? not sure of the lingo). They hand counted the ballots and the two elderly ladies counted them wrong. He corrected them. He carefully wrote down the correct information. While he was doing this, one of the elderly ladies was grabbing at the envelope; she ultimately did take the envelope and hurry away with it.

She then dropped the envelope and as she was picking it up, the
gentleman I interviewed (who does have a name, which I'll release with
his permission when he signs an affidavit) -- anyway, he witnessed her
take a ballot (which he had NOT seen fall out of the envelope) and put
it into the envelope. He noticed that, while all the ballots were
folded, this one was not folded.

She stated that she was bringing the envelope to where the Republicans
were putting all the ballots together. He asked her where this would
be, so he could go there too. She said she might "stop at her home" on
the way.

He called me initially, quite shaken, trying to learn where the
Boulder County Republicans were convening. I do not know.


The miscounts were against Ron Paul. The extra ballot inserted was for
Romney. He expressed amazement that these two seemingly nice elderly
ladies were involved in cheating, both on the count and, the one lady,
with the ballot stuffing. I should mention that the attendance in his
precinct was low, and even a few ballots would skew the count.

As we know, in Iowa it was quite a delay before we could get precinct
results from the caucus. I am unsure as to how promptly Colorado will
release precinct results, or even IF they will.
