This race is not over yet…
Members of the St. Louis Tea Party (and two Russ Carnahan campaign staffers) assembled outside the St. Louis Board of Elections to protest voter fraud in the 2010 midterm election between Ed Martin and Russ Carnahan. The video below by Repoot Congress is from that protest.
Reboot Congress has more on the rally against institutionalized voter fraud.
Republican Ed Martin released a statement this morning following the election last night. Martin led the race until a few St. Louis City precincts dumped thousands of pro-Carnahan ballots around midnight.
Candidly, I did not suspect that a pall would be cast over the vote Tuesday. We were on the alert for voter fraud, with teams of poll challengers monitoring polls. However, early n the day we learned that election computer systems were down for a major portion of the day, making it difficult on voters and local election officials.
The we learned that a security firm with ties to Russ Carnahan’s campaign had been hired by the Board of Elections. We do not know why they were hired, or what their role was for this election.
We also saw a mathematically implausible midnight surge of thousands of votes from a handful of precincts.
Missourians deserve to have their elections free and fair, and unfortunately Robin Carnahan’s office has not pursued the sort of clean voter rolls needed to have complete faith in an electoral outcome. We will investigate, and keep you posted.
