This is actually about 2 weeks old, but it never came up, so I figure better late than never.
http://www.inquisitr.com/403570/anon...-the-election/The hactivist group Anonymous is claiming that Karl Rove attempted to rig the election for Mitt Romney using ORCA, Rove’s Get Out the Vote program. They claim that ORCA is really a vote tabulation manipulation software — though they have not been able to provide proof of their actions.
Two days after the election, The Daily Kos reports that Anonymous posted an open letter regarding the reported attempted election fraud, saying in part:
“We began following the ‘digital traffic of one Karl Rove, a disrespecter of the Rule of Law, knowing that he claimed to be Kingmaker while grifting vast wealth from barons who gladly handed him gold to anoint another King while looking the other way.
“After a rather short time, we identified the digital structure of Karl’s operation and even that of his ORCA. This was an easy task in that the barn doors were left open and the wind swept us inside.”
I'm not much for conspiracy theory, but this does seem to fit. Karl Rove didn't just seem upset that Romney lost Ohio, he looked shocked. He appeared to be stuck in a state of disbelief. On top of that, no one has been able to contradict their claims for how Rove was planning to do it. Apparently, it is entirely feasible. The biggest issue seems to be that Anonymous won't provide proof. The two theories are that Anonymous broke laws themselves by hacking into a private network, so they would be opening themselves up for prosecution if they gave proof, or that they are simply lying. Thoughts on this...?
