Tagg Romney, or Captain Capitalist Jr, may have wanted to take a swing at President Obama (tough talk from a dude named “Tagg”), but it’s safe to assume that a whole country of democratic voters may want to collectively take a swing to the sniveling offspring of the overlord of rich guy smuggery.
So you remember how Karl Rove’s goons had the Republican-owned or operated Diebold machines rigged in favor of George Bush, which allowed then Ohio Republican Secretary of State, Ken Blackwell, to electronically flip a 4% Kerry lead to a 2% Bush victory in the dead of election night. Yeah, good times. But just when you were thinking that election fraud and voting irregularities were so 2004, yet another skeleton came dive-bombing out of the Romney closet to reveal the potential for a repeat of Ohio in 2004. After all, if you can’t buy the election then simply just steal it.
From an investigative article on Politicol News:
Tagg Romney the heir to the Romney fortunes (through Vulture Capitalism) is a chip off the old block and his dad scored big destroying American jobs through leveraging profitable companies.
In 2008 after Romney lost the 2008 bid for President it was all clear for Mitt Romney’s son Tagg Romney to invest in a company called Solamere Capital which is a direct subsidiary of Allen Stanford’s Bank and investment companies.
Allen Stanford was sentenced to 110 years in jail for one of the biggest 8 billion dollar ponzi scheme. The funds were never recovered for investors, and the SEC has never said Tagg Romney was not under investigation for his investments thereafter.
According to Lee Fang’s article, Exclusive: Romney Family Investment Group Partnered With Alleged Perpetrators Of $8 Billion Ponzi Scheme, on Think Progress:
Tagg Romney tapped into Mitt Romney’s Rolodex of wealthy associates, political donors, wealthy investors and in particular Mitt Romney’s campaign fundraiser: Spencer Zwick.
The 10 million seed funds were said to have come from one of Ann Romney’s Blind Family Trust accounts which aren’t so blind after all.
Wow, so it seems the conniving, sniveling, sociopathic apple doesn’t fall far from the tree. But here’s where things really look super duper swell for Romney.
The Voting Machine Connection to Ohio and Romney Family Investments
As Lee Fang points out in his detailed analysis of the Romney investments:
“Many of these private equity–owned companies rely on federal and state contracts, from HIG Capital’s Hart Intercivic, a voting machine company, to EnviroFoam Technologies, a biological and chemical decontamination firm that does business with the US military and is owned by Peterson Partners, a private equity firm listed in the Solamere prospectus.”
Solarmere’s tangled web of investments now includes Hart Intercivic voting machines which will be used in Cincinnati Ohio says Truth Out, which could guarantee Mitt Romney the White House.
The State of Ohio is Ground Zero for the White House, in particular Hamilton County a repeat of the George Bush election in 2004.
And not surprisingly, it seems the Hart Intercivic machines are famed for glitches and counting errors. Wow, kinda like Mittbot himself. Can anyone say “Department of Justice investigation,” like right now, as I am typing. Let’s hope that half of America will want to take a swing at Tagg Romney for nothing other than being Tagg Romney, as well as having Tagg as a first name.
