STORY: Nevada Democrats are planning to use a new Caucus Day “tool” preloaded onto iPads and distributed to precinct chairs to fold in early vote results, according to multiple volunteers and a video recording of a training session today. https://t.co/3MC2MkJAP3

Bernie’s Campaign should get a court injunction against this “tool”.

Just what and who is Oracle?

Oracle is a leading supplier of business accounting and supply chain software. This would be a very small task for them, well within their capabilities….IF they have time to test and train, and IF their management is not in the tank with the DNC to corrupt the process. Both very big IFs.
The company was founded by Larry Ellison, and the only thing I know about him is that he puts a significant amount of his ego and fortune into America’s Cup races. No idea of his political leanings, but he is an oligarch, so there is that.

Larry Ellison is definitely a right wing Republican. He was a major Chimpy supporter, and in the wake of 9/11 actually put an offer on the table for that administration which would have included a massive national surveillance database, which would have included mandatory RFID chips implanted into every last mortal in the country.
As you might expect, this didn’t go over very well among the religious FundaMENTALists, who saw it as an obvious implementation of what is known as “The Mark of the Beast” in the Scriptures. For the record, I was NOT consulted by Ellison or anybody else at Oracle nor within the Chimpministration about the project.

Bwahahahaha! Let the rounding errors begin!!!!!!! Also, ensure a supply of Vegas chips for those democratic coin tosses…….
edited to add – corrected the “dice” to “chips” and then I thought – hell, why not use dice? Just as democratic! Sure, they would have to be loaded instead of just throwing them in the air and pocketing them without showing anyone what happened, but hey! It’s Vegas!
Anyone who asks, or thinks they can order me, to vote for a Democrat who is not Bernie can fuck off.
Nope. If Bernie is not on the ballot, Green it is.

And exactly how does this make them any different than Iowa? Fortunately Bernie also has an app.

Every precinct result in Nevada should be recorded on video by as many people as possible and posted online as soon as the Caucus has ended.
There will be 4 days of early voting on paper forms from Feb 15-18 where voters can select a candidate along with 4 alternatives.
Unfortunately, every step of the process will be a target for cheaters trying to rig things. The more documenting and overseeing of the process, the harder it will be for cheaters to cheat.

We have to find a way to just say no.
Paper ballots and people in place.

So what, are they assuming the problem in Iowa was because of the Android OS or something?

Everyone with a brain is aware the DNC is going to pull out all the stops to prevent Bernie from coming in first in delegates at the convention. Caucuses are easier to rig than primaries because they are more complicated and less monitored by state authorities.
Of course they’ll cheat. Of course they’ll get caught. Again. Bernie can only win by his supporters showing up in such numbers that they can overcome a 4 or 5 percent handicap every time. Fortunately, that can actually happen. In every state.

Sorry the platform won’t let me “like” this!
