Unrepentant e-voting shill finally resigns post
Los Angeles CityBeat |
"Late Monday, word came that Mischelle Townsend, Riverside County's Registrar of Voters, had abruptly quit her job mid-term. She said she wanted to spend more time with her family... But she didn't mention anything about a controversial March 2 election for county supervisor that was still being contested, and the recount that had become entangled in problems attributable, in part, to the county's electronic voting machines. Nor did she mention anything about potentially explosive new details regarding the possible manipulation of those machines. Likewise, no mention of the big list of questions to this effect from Los Angeles CityBeat sitting on her desk since last Saturday... At first she said she would be glad to answer, but she missed a mutually agreed deadline, and failed to respond to messages left at her office. Eventually reached on her cell phone, she said she had been advised by her lawyers not to contribute to an article that 'obviously was not going to be factual.' ... She also failed to mention that she had just quit her job. The next morning, as this article was going to press, the Riverside Press-Enterprise reported that she was retiring early."
