Montgomery Advertiser Article, "Officials Investigate Possible Voter Fraud in Autauga County

Once again, why am I not surprised with this article?  http://www.montgomeryadvertiser.com/article/20100619/NEWS01/6190334/1007/archives

It's a very interesting article to me.  I don't think that Circuit Clerk Whit Moncrief  had anything to do with fraud...as he has seemed to be a very upstanding citizen of Autauga County.  However, I know that Autauga County has been known to have "glitches" in the voting system from time to time.  On 2 separate occasions, the ballots have been taken over to Elmore County for DISTRICT ATTORNEY Randall Houston to count.  Once was during the primary run-off when I was running for sheriff, and the run off was between Otto Motley and myself.  "Evidently", lightning struck the computer, or something to that effect, and the sheriff had to load up the ballots and take them to Elmore County for Randall Houston to count.  Another time this happened also.  There has been much fuss by the Republican Party concerning Tim James requesting a RE-COUNT. However, I am all for Tim James expecting one, requesting one, and paying for one.  However, when one cannot afford to pay for a re-count, it should still be done.  There should be a provision for this, when there is a question concerning a race.  What have our elections come to, when we have to pay for impartiality and fairness?  I would like to hear YOUR opinions on this issue.  I know I'll be having many visitors (and you know who you are)...concerning this.

Tim "We speak English around here" James is gone.

Bye bye.
