Ron Paul Says Diebold Machines Can't Be Trusted

The Associated Press via ABC News reports that former Massachusetts Gov. Mick Romney won the Iowa caucus but not before a Diebold voting machine broke down and votes had to be hand-counted.

Earlier this week, Congressman Ron Paul filed a federal suit claiming the "vote-counting machines, made by Diebold Election Systems...had fundamental weaknesses."

A federal judge in Des Moines refused to grant an injunction on Friday. The matter was appealed to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 8th Circuit, which on Saturday morning upheld the ruling.

The machines, the plaintiffs argued, are the same type that California's secretary of state placed rigorous security conditions on last week.

You know that'zzz right!

By the bye, Gov. Mike Huckabee, the only "real" Christian ('cause he's a former Southern Baptist minister and all) came in second place -- closely behind -- Sen. Sam Brownback came in third.
