Logan-Huff Uses Foreign Vendor

The Logan-Huff run King County Elections Department is apparently using a vendor (Dominion) from a foreign country for their election/voting equipment. Logan-Huff had bought optical scanning system equipment from the controversial "Diebold"/Premier company, despite many objections from their Democratic Party base. Premier's inventory was acquired briefly by the almost equally controversial ES&S company, and now the inventory is in the hands of Dominion, a Canadian company. The director, Ms. Huff, was fully in agreement with the purchase of voting equipment from Diebold. As far as we know, they have not taken steps to use an American company as their prime vendor.

Test Run

Senator John Kerry of Massachusetts is quite the enigmatic figure. There have been all kinds of reports, news stories and inquiries about the possibility that the U.S. presidential election of 2004 was stolen, but Kerry doesn't seem indignant about that possibility, and he waged no protest in the aftermath of the election, though his vice presidential running mate reportedly wanted to challenge the results. Kerry has either been strangely silent or the news about any disgruntlement on his part isn't getting out much; we suspect the former. It has been widely reported that Kerry was leading in exit polls, generally, on Election Day, 2004, and also that there were several flagrant election incongruities in the State of Ohio, where the election was ultimately decided, yet Kerry, who could have made legal challenges with his ample campaign bankroll and commanded legions of supporters to protest the election, did nothing. There was a little fight about the election in the U.S. …

800 Great Washingtonians

So far, about eight hundred great Washingtonians have signed Mark's petition for Director of Elections, and Mark thanks them immensely. Without them, there would probably be no contested election for Director of Elections in King County, Washington in 2011, and the same old mismanagement, chicanery, ineptitude and corruption would be uninterupted (now, this would be a good movie for Winona Ryder to star in, something on the order of "All the President's Men" or "Wall Street" with a lot of the shadiness captured through one movie). Eight is not enough though, we will need at least twenty hundred signatures, and even with that, which would be five hundred fifty signatures more than necessary, the Logan-Huff regime might find a way to invalidate the petition, but they shouldn't even be the ones checking it (or counting the votes in the election) considering the conflict of interest involved, and the campaign will see if it is possible for a different gov…
