Voting machines tied to the Romneys could decide the election in Ohio

Dear Friend,

If this year's presidential election comes down to the electoral votes
in Ohio, the deciding votes could be cast on electronic voting
machines manufactured by a company - Hart Intercivic - with deep
financial ties to the Romney family.

Hart Intercivic is majority owned by H.I.G. Capital which controls two
of the five seats on the Hart Intercivic board. An investment fund
with deep ties to the Romney family and the Mitt Romney for president
campaign, H.I.G. Capital was founded by Tony Tamer, a major bundler
for the Romney campaign, and it is one of the largest partners of
Solamere Capital, an investment fund founded by Tagg Romney and
Spencer Zwick, Mitt Romney's chief fundraiser from the 2008
presidential campaign. This makes the Romney family part owner of the
voting machine company, through it's interest in H.I.G. Capital.

A 2007 study conducted by Ohio's Secretary of State showed that Hart
Intercivic's touch screen voting machines could be easily corrupted.

I just signed a petition telling the Department of Justice to not let
Republicans steal the election in Ohio with Romney-owned voting
machines. Click on the link below to find out more and sign the
petition.
