Vote fraud expert Bev Harris warns he could be walking into a trap

Citing “serious and credible reports, allegations and rumors” about the integrity of Tuesday’s results, Congressman Dennis Kucinich is backing a full recount of ballots for the Democratic contest in New Hampshire, meaning that both party’s primaries may now both be cast into doubt. However, vote fraud expert Bev Harris has warned that it could all be a trap to validate Diebold electronic voting machines.
As we reported yesterday, New Hampshire Republican candidate Albert Howard is prepared to put his name behind a primary recount in order to ascertain if the example of “human error” in the town of Sutton, where Ron Paul was originally given zero votes, was an isolated case or if wider vote fraud took place.
Kucinich’s motivation for demanding a recount is the highly suspicious way in which Hillary Clinton reversed a 13 point pre-polling deficit to defeat Barack Obama, aided by a 7% swing thanks to the use of Diebold electronic voting machines.
“Kucinich alluded to online reports alleging disparities around the state between hand-counted ballots, which tended to favor Sen. Barack Obama, and machine-counted ones that tended to favor Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton. He also noted the difference between pre-election polls, which indicated Obama would win, and Clinton’s triumph by a 39 percent to 37 percent margin,” reports the Associated Press.
No doubt the Congressman is referring to this website, the Brad Blog and others who led the charge in exposing probable vote fraud in the hours after the primary.
Though Kucinich has cautioned that he doesn’t expect the recount to produce significantly different results, vote fraud expert Bev Harris warns that unless chain of custody issues are addressed before a recount, the recount itself is worthless because it will be overseen by the same people who committed vote fraud in the first place if indeed there was any chicanery.
In addition, should the recount produce exactly the same results it will validate Diebold electronic voting machines despite the fact that they have been proven to be wide open to fraud.
“A candidate asking for a recount may well be a tool used to ‘prove’ everything was okay and then that candidate will be further discredited,” reports Harris.
“We need citizen control and oversight. This is not going to come from the recount. If the election was rigged…don’t you think the riggers would have a backup Plan B for a rigged recount, knowing how easy it is to get a recount in NH?,” she concludes.
