Missouri Denies Machines Counted Romney Votes for Obama

Break out the popcorn


ST. LOUIS —  Claims of faulty machines giving votes intended for Mitt Romney to President Obama are unfounded, the Missouri Secretary of State's office says.

The Republican National Committee sent letters to six secretaries of state, including Missouri Democrat Robin Carnahan, on Thursday expressing concern over voting machines.

In the letter, John R. Phillippe, Jr., chief counsel for the RNC, wrote that "in a significant number of cases" voting machines in these states populated votes for the wrong presidential contender, giving the tally to Obama instead of Romney.
