Wait, WHO Owns The F***ing Voting Machines?!

Recent articles have been surfacing about the Romney’s families ties to the private company that will be counting votes in November. Lee Camp explains that there is more disturbing news to this story.

This video discusses the major investors are in a company that owns the Ohio voting machines. I do not say it’s just Tagg Romney, as many people have been saying. There are now articles going around saying the Tagg Romney story is bullshit, which it may very well be. But as far as I’ve seen, no reliable source has debunked the main thrust of my video, nor the FreePress article where I got the info. That main thrust is that HIG Capital owns a controlling stake in Hart Intercivic, which makes the voting machines. HIG Capital is almost entirely ex-Bain Capital people along with the Romney family. And HIG Capital is the sixth largest donor to the Romney campaign. I have yet to see an article that says otherwise. Here’s the Free Press article (reprinted in TruthOut) where I got most of my info.

​​Not everyone can pay for the news. But if you can, we need your support.

Truthout is widely read among people with lower ­incomes and among young people who are mired in debt. Our site is read at public libraries, among people without internet access of their own. People print out our articles and send them to family members in prison — we receive letters from behind bars regularly thanking us for our coverage. Our stories are emailed and shared around communities, sparking grassroots mobilization.

We’re committed to keeping all Truthout articles free and available to the public. But in order to do that, we need those who can afford to contribute to our work to do so — especially now, because we only have hours left to raise over $9,000 in critical funds.

We’ll never require you to give, but we can ask you from the bottom of our hearts: Will you donate what you can, so we can continue providing journalism in the service of justice and truth?
