Not completely sure of the meaning of the query.

Has Jimmy Carter Moved to Spain? « Joyanna Adams

Why should we wonder?
Because the CEO of SKYTL, Pere Valles, a socialist who donated heavily to the 2008 Obama campaign and lived in Chicago during Obama’s time as Illinois State Senator, will be counting our ballots.

I don't know about Jimmy Carter moving there but after seeing all the excitment on this board from a youtube clip of some spaniards cheering on Ron Paul I thought perhaps he will be running for something there next.

Wouldn't surprise me. We just recently found out Spain's financial crisis may not be over.

Wherever there's trouble, you'll find Carter there solving it.

Peoples votes being counted in Spain w/ these political and financial connections should be ringing alarm bells nationally. Never mind the physical method being used. I personally don't see how this can be legal.

Really not completely sure of the Carter reference. Obviously, a Dem link. Was reported the Carlyle Group was involved, but maybe because of the initial funding or purchase of SOE. Maybe the Fed grant program planned to promoted this. I was able to "verify" the GS link. Have been following this in the GS election thread. There appears to be an Obama link also.

Okay. It's 'tin foil hat Friday' here on CD. And you quote from the blog of a prostitute.

There is nothing here that is "tin foil hat". This is all documented in the public domain.

As to the prostitute thing. Have no idea if that is true (though I rather doubt it) nor do I care. Would have nothing to do with the information.

Was the possibility of election fraud an issue which upset you a few years ago?

"The head of a company vying to sell voting machines in Ohio told Republicans in a recent fund-raising letter that he is 'committed to helping Ohio deliver its electoral votes to the president next year.' The Aug. 14 letter from Walden O'Dell, chief executive of Diebold, Inc - who has become active in the re-election effort of President Bush - prompted Democrats this week to question the propriety of allowing O'Dell's company to calculate votes in the 2004 presidential election."

I have a whole thread on election fraud under GS election investment. I have never been apathetic to election fraud of any kind. The machines are the worst offenders and this new deal is over the top. The case you are referencing has newer (2011) court docs related to Ohio in that thread.

I spent time digging up information on this because it is little talked of. The amt of docs I am finding are truly appalling. So I hope you aren't implying a buy into the DnR game. I do not.

Apparently, Barcelona is also Carter's favorite City also.
