Guest Blogged by John Gideon of Today three featured articles discuss an issue of over 700 votes that just about went uncounted in Palm Beach Co. Florida this past week. But for the fact that the county did an audit and eventually found that election results on from three machines had not been reported in the totals. It is still unknown what happened with these three machines. There is speculation that a card reader may not have worked properly. Another excuse is that the cards may never have been counted at all. The county is investigating. What seems to be incredible is that the when asked by the media early Friday about the discrepancy the Supervisor of Elections, Arthur Anderson, told them that he was not aware of a problem because he was out campaigning for re-election. Typically the Sequoia spokeswoman, Michelle Shafer, ignored the fact that there is an ongoing investigation as she claimed that the public can be confident that the optical scanners worked and votes were properly recorded and tabulated. She ignores the fact that the voters were not properly reported....
