This still doesn't sound just right to me. I read that there were very few electronic polling places in Ohio.

The details in the Anonymous claim are currently unverified and there are many lingering question. For one, as our own Alex Seitz-Wald pointed out via email, “they never explain how Rove was stealing the election in Ohio, Florida, and Virginia. [There are] not many e-voting machines and not sure how else you’d do it.”

Secondly, it seems questionable whether the ORCA system (which belonged to Romney’s campaign, not Rove, as the Anonymous letter suggests) was capable of rigging an election — it barely functioned as a GOTV project. Writing at Ace of Spades, John Ekdah called Project ORCA an “unmitigated disaster“. He details a long list of problem that indicate the massive undertaking lacked the necessary “planning, training and coordination” to be successful.

Even without Anonymous’ alleged efforts, it is unclear that ORCA had the sophistication to rig votes. Although perhaps nefarious intentions behind the project account for its failure as a GOTV system. Again, we can only speculate — the onus is on Anonymous to provide further proof before we can believe these (albeit delicious) claims.

Salon is not exactly a good friend of Mr. Rove's, either.

We need to ask buzzards about that. He was on the ground in Ohio w/Obama campaign to the end. NYT reader reported 200,000 provisional ballots in black districts - very doubtful those will ever be counted. Buzzards has knowledge on that issue, as well.

Rove steals elections. He always has. I'd always assumed Obama people knew this. Nonetheless, this is why the huge emphasis on turnout - to overcome the vote flipping - which has been going on for a good long while, now. There are even lawsuits on the issue.

Willard didn't have a concession speech written because little birdies like rove whispered in his ear and told him he was going to win. <giggling>

Karl Rove didn't try to steal the election. He tried to buy it. He failed. Thank God.

All candidates try to buy the election. Only one succeeds.

The big money was on Rove's side.

Amazing how you can be a teacher and so intellectually dishonest. You think campaign contributions was the only thing on the table for either candidate?

If this is true, all involved should be hung.

Wow the righties won touch this one. Considering the many things that hackers can do, considering that Romney actually hired people to play fireworks in Boston Harbor and didn't even have a concession speech and was "shocked" by the loss, I don't think this story is one to dismiss.
