Well isn't this just peachy.
Americans will not be counting American votes this Fall, in the presidential election.
Votes will be counted by the Spanish online voting company SKYTL (aka SCYTL)
which also - by the way - is a company that is believed to have ties to Goldman Sachs (see below).
When the Spanish online voting company SKYTL bought the largest vote processing corporation in the United States, it also acquired the means of manufacturing the outcome of the 2012 election. For SOE, the Tampa based corporation purchased by SKYTL in January, supplies the election software which records, counts, and reports the votes of Americans in 26 states–900 total jurisdictions–across the nation.With SCYTL internet voting, there will be no ballots and no chain of custody. There will also be no physical evidence and no way for the public to authenticate anything having to do with the vote count.
As the largest election results reporting company in the US, SOE provides reports right down to the precinct level. But before going anywhere else, those election returns are routed to individual, company servers where the people who run them “…get ‘first look’ at results and the ability to immediately and privately examine vote details throughout the USA.” In short, “this redirects results …to a centralized privately held server which is not just for Ohio, but national; not just USA-based, but global.”
And although the votes will be cast in hometown, American precincts on Election Day, with the Barcelona-based SKYTL taking charge of the process, they will be routed and counted overseas.
SKYTL itself is a leader in internet voting technology and in 2010 was involved in modernizing election systems for the midterm election in 14 American states.
But although SKYTL’s self-proclaimed reputation for security had won the company the Congressionally approved task of handling internet voting for American citizens and members of the military overseas, upon opening the system for use in the District of Columbia, the University of Michigan fight song “The Victors” was suddenly heard after the casting of each ballot. The system had been hacked by U of M computer teachers and students in response to a challenge by SKYTL that anyone who wished to do so, might try!
Nevertheless, in spite of warnings by experts across the nation, American soldiers overseas will once again vote via the internet in 2012. And because SKYTL will control the method of voting and—thanks to the purchase of SOE–the method of counting the votes as well, there “…will be no ballots, no physical evidence, no way for the public to authenticate who actually cast the votes…or the count.”
The American advocacy group Project Vote has concluded that SKYTL’s internet voting system is vulnerable to attack from the outside AND the inside, a situation which could result in “…an election that does not accurately reflect the will of the voters…” Talk about having a flair for understatement!
It has also been claimed that SKYTL CEO Pere Valles is a socialist who donated heavily to the 2008 Obama campaign and lived in Chicago during Obama’s time as Illinois State Senator. Unfortunately, given what is known about the character of Barack Obama, such rumors must be taken as serious threats to the integrity of the 2012 vote and the legitimate outcome of the election.
Though much has been written about the threat of nationwide voting by illegals in November, it is still true that most election fraud is an “inside” job. And there now exists a purely electronic voting service which uses no physical ballots to which an electronic count can be matched should questions arise. Add to this the fact that the same company will have “first count” on all votes made in 14 US states and hundreds of jurisdictions in 12 others, and the stage is set for election fraud on a scale unimaginable just a decade ago.
Perhaps Obama had reason for supreme confidence when he said “after my election” rather than “in case of” to Russian President Medvedev a week ago.
What's worse is they will be counting the online votes made by American servicemen (and women) overseas!
Why is it that a foreign entity can have access to our votes?
How is that even legal?
This needs to be exposed and investigated.
This reeks of possible vote rigging.
One commenter on an article from Klein Online stated:
Former Goldman veterans own and control Scytl. Scytl is owned and controlled by a venture capital firm, Balderton, a venture capital firm that is run by Goldman Sachs veterans Tim Bunting and Mark Evans.
Scytl is in a unique position to not only control and tabulate the votes of U.S elections (in a foreign country, separate from U.S. law and oversight), but also control e-polls as well. And all of the control is backed by Goldman Sachs veterans.
Goldman Sachs is a parasite on government. The fact that so many former Goldman Sachs employees have gone on to hold pivotal positions in the US Treasury, Federal Reserve, or as regulators is evidence of a captured government. Goldman Sachs is Mitt Romney's largest campaign contributor.
Knowing that former Goldman Sachs veterans have an ownership interest in a foreign company that tabulates votes in the United States is very alarming to any American who is concerned about open and transparent elections!
... The CEO of Scytl gave maximum contribution to Barack Obama's inauguration fund!
The Klein Online article also states:
Project Vote noted that in 2008, the Florida Department of State commissioned a review of SCYTL’s remote voting software and concluded, in part, that:
. The system is vulnerable to attack from insiders.
· In a worst case scenario, the software could lead to (1) voters being unable to cast votes; (2) an election that does not accurately reflect the will of the voters; and (3) possible disclosure of confidential information, such as the votes cast by individual voters.
· The system may be subject to attacks that could compromise the integrity of the votes cast.
This is really disturbing.
