[h=1]Ron Paul’s Iowa Win: Hackers Threaten to Disrupt Caucus Vote[/h]

Now that it looks like Ron Paul will take the Iowa caucus hands-down, the shadowy hacker group Anonymous has vowed to disrupt the vote.



“Republican Party officials in Iowa are taking new steps to secure their vote counting systems after an anonymous threat suggested computer hackers could attempt to disrupt next month’s presidential nominating caucuses,” reports the Associated Press.

A video on YouTube was allegedly posted by Anonymous. It calls the political system corrupt and urges supporters to "peacefully shut down" the January 3rd caucus.

“Investigators aren’t sure whether the video is authentic, but party officials have instructed precinct caucuses to use paper ballots as a backup system and taken other steps to protect the database and website that displays caucus results,” the AP adds.

According to a survey conducted between December 16-19 by Public Policy Polling, Ron Paul dominates the pre-election caucus in Iowa. “Newt Gingrich’s campaign is rapidly imploding, and Ron Paul has now taken the lead in Iowa. He’s at 23% to 20% for Mitt Romney, 14% for Gingrich, 10% each for Rick Santorum, Michele Bachmann, and Rick Perry, 4% for Jon Huntsman, and 2% for Gary Johnson,” the organization reports.

Since 1972, the Iowa caucuses have been the first major electoral event of the nominating process for the presidency and have served as an early indication of which candidates might win the nomination of their party at the national convention.

The establishment is sincerely perturbed by Paul’s rise and widespread support. Last week Chris Wallace of Fox News said if Paul wins Iowa it does not matter because the GOP doesn’t believe he can win.

As polls demonstrate, Ron Paul can indeed win not only the Iowa and New Hampshire caucuses, but also the primaries, the nomination and ultimately the presidency.

The GOP does not want an anti-big government constitutionalist who has vowed to end the wars and abolish the Federal Reserve to win and will likely engage in skullduggery to make sure Mitt Romney or Mitt Gingrich take the nomination and lose in the race against Obama.

If Ron Paul wins - it was a hack job.

If Ron Paul loses - they were able to fight off the attempt.

They're really pulling out all the stops.

You can't really 'hack' a local caucus and if you did everyone would know right away.

In the end, the poll numbers speak for themselves, and if the results end up being significantly different than the poll numbers, then the results are known to be BS.

This is very positive for Ron Paul. If they move to paper ballots to prevent "hacking", then it's harder to game the system.
Depends on who's counting the ballots, hopefully he has plenty of observers.

Do the FBI, DHS, CIA and the rest of the Alphabet Soup agencies consider these Anonymous guys to be domestic terrorists? Why the hell not?

Never mind, silly me. :banghead:

We need to go back to paper ballots nationwide - and outright outlaw voting machines that don't give you a "printout" of your vote.

Because they'd be chasing their own tail...?



This is one more reason to return to paper ballots...
