Dennis Kucinich Thinks Hillary Clinton Is Cheating

Dennis Kucinich is asking New Hampshire to recount the primary votes because of, “serious and credible reports, allegations and rumors.” Kucinich only won less than 2% of the vote. Kucinich seems to think that the pre-primary polls that showed Barack Obama double digits ahead of Hillary Clinton might have been right. He sent a letter to the New Hampshire Secretary of State David Scanlan asking for the recount because of “unexplained disparities between hand-counted ballots and machine-counted ballots.” He says the request is not about his own votes, because he doesn’t believe, “a recount will significantly affect the number of votes that were cast on my behalf,” according to Kucinich. Kucinich added, “Ever since the 2000 election – and even before – the American people have been losing faith in the belief that their votes were actually counted. This recount isn’t about who won 39% of 36% or even 1%. It’s about establishing whether 100% of the voters had 100% of their votes counted exactly the way they cast them.” So it is not about any of the candidates, but why didn’t he ask about Iowa’s votes? Candidates that lose by less than 3% can request a recount and only pay $2000, but candidates that lose by more must pay the full cost. Kucinich has stated that he has sent them a $2000 check to get the process rolling. Scanlan has said he has received several calls asking about the vote count, but he was sure the results were accurate. “I think people from out of state don’t completely understand how our process works and they compare it to the system that might exist in Florida or Ohio, where they have had serious problems,” he said. “Perhaps the best thing that could happen for us is to have a recount to show the people that … the votes that were cast on election day were accurately reflected in the results. And I have every confidence that will be the case.” So if they do recount the votes, Kucinich will get one hell of a discount, or he is speaking for Obama. It is clear that this is a veiled attack, accusing the Clinton camp of somehow manipulating the vote in New Hampshire. Just come out and say what you mean Moonbeam Dennis.

    On Nov 3rd, 2004, Hillary Clinton had her boy Carville whisper into Kerry’s ear that here were only 150,000 outstanding ballots in Ohio and that Kerry should concede (Voting activists now believe that there may have been as many as 400,000 ballots available, more than enough to beat GW Bush in Ohio)

    Then she call personally called John Edwards and scolded him for “grandstanding” in his speeches. What was John Edwards saying? That every vote should be counted.

    Then John Kerry conceded.

    And now we should trust Hillary. I don’t think so.

    Thank you for your astute comment, Elise. I had never before heard this story, but I am sure it is true.

    Hillary is cheating again in Nevada. As a lifelong Democrat and a female, I would never vote for her. I don’t vote for cheaters.
