Foiled!

It's still early afternoon, but LL is ready to award the best tweet of the day to the Board of Election's and Ethics, who reports:

"...and we just confirmed that a voter used a write-in hand stamp. On a touch screen."

If you don't know, the hand stamps are courtesy of the Write-In Fenty folks.

    Wow! What I'm trying to imagine is the personae of the person and how they appeared to the one handing out the Fenty stamps, or was the hand stamp dispenser just being paid to get rid of the stamps and didn't care WHO he gave them to? No instructions? Were the stamps considered some consolation gift? Just.....wow!

  • Crazy

    Stupid--just like this write-in bull.

    Amen to your comment!

    I have to think it was done on purpose- to make it so Fenty's name would appear on the right-in line on the screen and remind people to "write" him in.
    Which would make this illegal- both vandalism and electioneering. Not good.

    Drez: Good point about doing it on purpose. Could be true. There are many warnings posted re tampering with election machines and they include things like: The election judges will know immediately, so don't try it. Could be that the machine alarmed when it was stamped.

    Still, I can't imagine this guy is very bright. So i couldn't help but crack up at this lame move. I wouldn't take it too seriously unless there are widespread reports.

  • Truth Hurts
