Code Red: Computerized Election Theft and the New American Century

(Election 2016 Edition)

Jonathon Simon

In Code Red, Simon lays out a powerful case that computerized voting machines have opened US elections to large scale fraud and election theft. The book offers an impressive compilation of studies demonstrating exactly how the vote hacking is carried out – both on Direct Recording (DRE) voting machines and optical scanners that count paper ballots. The book also highlights the immense danger of denying access to the public, and more importantly election officials, to voting memory cards, programming code and server logs to verify the validity of American elections. All of this information is declared off-limits by the handful of right-leaning corporations that supply voting equipment to local jurisdictions. On the spurious claim this is proprietary corporate information.

Simon also presents his own extensive research into marked discrepancies between vote counts and voter exit polls over the last 15 years – reminding us that the US State Department uses voter exit polls to verify the legitimacy of overseas elections.

As a Bernie Sanders supporter, I was most interested in the section on the 2016 Democratic primary. Here Simon not only examines discrepancies between the vote count and the original exit polls (before the corporate media massaged the data to bring it in line with the vote count), but serious discrepancies between states that choose candidates via caucus (where ballots must be counted by hand) with demographically similar states that choose candidates via primary elections.

In all but the first two states (Iowa and Nebraska), Sanders didn’t just beat Clinton – he won by a landslide. I confess to my absolute fury on seeing the table below and realizing how thoroughly we were ripped off by the Democratic National Committee and the corporate media.

In The Red Shift, Simon examines every presidential and congressional election since 2002, when computerized voting was first introduced. He finds evidence of a fraudulent “red shift” (ie a hacker-based shift towards the more pro-corporate candidate) in each of them, including the 2006, 2008, 2010 and 2012 elections where there were significant Democratic victories.

He also finds evidence of a “red shift” in most gubernatorial and state house elections from 2002 on, including the 2012 recall election of Wisconsin Republican Governor Scott Walker.

    “large scale fraud and election theft”

    So much for people power!

    • To be fair to Simon, Aunty, he does propose that Americans can return to verifiable paper ballots if they organize at the local level and demand their county electoral offices get rid of the machines. I tend to agree with his assertion that this is where the fight for electoral reform needs to start – that activists need to get rid of the voting machines before they focus on voter suppression, gerrymandering and corporate theft of elections. He presents some really sound arguments that these other factors play a much smaller role in the outcome of elections.

    The NY Dem primary seemed odd. Sanders held several rallies that drew 15-30,000 in NYC but Clinton still won in the city, despite no big crowds. Possibly legit, but still odd given such an enthusiasm gap.

    • Thanks for your comment, qphotonyc. What you need to look at is the original exit polls – there is absolutely no reason for the exit polls to differ from the vote count more than 1-2%. In foreign elections the State Department monitors, they always rely on the exit polls to decide if an election is legitimate.

    A shining example of democracy for the rest of the world to follow!

  5. The notion that the US is a democracy is a a 242 year joke that has ceased to be funny.
