All analysts agree that a candidate can’t win the Presidential Election without winning the state of Ohio. It appears that Romney is willing to win the state by any means necessary. According to PoliticolNews.com, Mitt Romney’s son, Tagg Romney, has invested in the electronic voting machines being used in Ohio. The new voting machines are under the brand name HART Intercivic and Tagg Romney is one of the owners of the company.
In the excerpt below, the website is calling for a Federal investigation of the conflict:
In recent weeks Tagg has taken a more “active role in his father’s campaign management” but when you look further, he also has a major problem with that role. By virtue of conflict of interest alone, this role should be investigated by the DOJ preferably involving the addition of the FBI, Homeland Security and the CIA to ensure this connection will not endanger the vote in Ohio and other states. After all isn’t the security of an election both state and federal authorities responsibility to ensure the election is not stolen, tampered, or results altered?
In more detail, the link between Tagg Romney and the voting machines in Ohio are given:
Bain Capital, Solamere Capital both of which are major investments for both Mitt and Tagg Romney are connected to many private equity investments. As Lee Fang points out in his detailed analysis of the Romney investments “Many of these private equity–owned companies rely on federal and state contracts, from HIG Capital’s Hart Intercivic, a voting machine company, to EnviroFoam Technologies, a biological and chemical decontamination firm that does business with the US military and is owned by Peterson Partners, a private equity firm listed in the Solamere prospectus.” Solarmere’s tangled web of investments now includes Hart Intercivic voting machines which will be used in Cincinnati Ohio says Truth Out which could guarantee Mitt Romney the White House.
In response to the revealing of the connection between Mitt Romney and the voting machines in Ohio, a petition has been formed on SignOn.org to call for a Federal investigation of the conflict. The email (below) includes the link to sign a petition asking Attorney General Eric Holder and President Obama to initiate an investigation into the conflict:
Dear SignOn.org member,
According to an article on PoliticolNews.com, Mitt Romney’s son, Tagg, is a major investor in Hart InterCivic, the company that owns electronic voting machines that will be used in Ohio for this election.1 The article also alleges that these machines are easily hacked. Not to mention it’s an obvious conflict of interest.
That’s why I created a petition on SignOn.org to U.S. Attorney General Eric H. Holder and President Obama to get the Department of Justice to initiate an investigation into this issue before Election Day on November 6, 2012.
The petition says:
Ensure that the election is not stolen and that the results are not tampered with or altered: Investigate voting machines owned by Tagg Romney.
