Setting the Record Straight, Again

Updated, further below, about 6:30 PM on Nov. 3, 2011.

I wouldn't even be dignifying some of these smears on the internet by responding to them if Google, Bing and Yahoo didn't place them on page 1 or 2 of internet searches of my name and candidacy, but there is one lie out there that needs to be rebutted before it gets traction: going against this lie, I very well do support verifiable paper trails of electronic vote tabulation machines.  The opposite of that is a particularly onerous lie, because not only do I support paper trails, but I want corroborating hand recounts of that same paper in sample random precincts of all elections regardless of how close the unofficial vote count is, and one day, I might even go farther than that, and say that paper should be used exclusively for voting in King County, and bar the tabulating machines.  So you can tell that the (Logan)-Huff supporters are getting desperate when they turn what I say into 180 degrees the opposite.  By the way, the particular website/blog that made the smear about paper trails is aptly named.

Update (11/3/11):  making this lie even more outlandish, it would be impossible not to have a paper trail in King County anyway with the optical scanner system that is now used, and I never said anything about making elections less verifiable.  Enough about this intentional smear, but now you know that this election is close, and the Establishment and their sycophants are sweating hard.
