Nevada Secretary of State: ‘I’m not going to stand for any fraud…’
Amid reports in the Washington Examiner on Tuesday that some voting machines in Clark County had Senator Harry Reid’s name already checked and, further, that Clark County’s voting machine technicians are represented by the SEIU, the Nevada Secretary of State Ross Miller says everything is A-OK.
Secretary of State Ross Miller said today there have been no complaints filed with his office about suspicious voter activity despite email rumors and media accounts that at least some electronic voting machines are pre-programmed to support U.S. Senate candidate Harry Reid, D-NV.
Miller, holding the first of two media briefings on the allegations, urged anyone seeing a violation of election or voting law to file a formal complaint with his office so it can be investigated.
“I know that tensions are running high this election and that emotions are running very strong, but I want to set the record straight,” he said. “This is the entire reason that we have formed the Election Integrity Task Force in 2008. I’m not going to stand for any fraud or intimidation at the polling place, but nor will I stand idly by and listen to rumors and innuendos undermine the integrity of our electoral process.”
Additionally, there have been reports that Teacher’s union representatives are offering Starbucks cards to get voters to vote for Reid. Secretary of State Miller also took exception with this.
Other claims in the run-up to Nevada’s election include that voters are being compensated to cast their ballots. The task force has not received any complaint of that occurring and neither has the FBI, Miller said.
The basis of these claims is rumor and innuendo, he said.
“We want the public to come forward,” Miller said. “If someone is compensating somebody by giving a Starbucks card in order to vote for Harry Reid, we want to know about it because that is a violation of state law and a violation of federal law.”
And, of course, Ross Miller has all of the credentials of being one of Soros’ Secretaries of State, as well as being backed by the Purple Hand of the SEIU itself.
Move along, citizen. There’s nothing to see here. Move along.
[PSA: If you are offered a Starbucks card, Happy Meal, a pack of cigarettes, $10 or sexual favors to vote for Harry Reid, please go here to file a complaint with the Nevada Secretary of State’s office.]
