Computer hackers program Ron Paul for President 2008

Sacramento, California - California Secretary of State, Debrah Bown, commissioned a team of computer hackers to test the security of the state's electronic-voting machines by hacking into them. The security system failed and the hackers got into the voting program with little to no effort for their part, confirming suspicions that the new electronic-voting system is highly susceptible to election fraud, concluded the report.

After they accessed the voting program, which tabulates the number of votes cast for each candidate, the hackers discovered the computers had already been hacked into and were preprogrammed with Hillary Clinton as the projected winner for 2008. They then quickly reprogrammed the election results to read Ron Paul as the winner of the State of California's electoral college vote for 2008; and not that it matters, of course, the state's popular vote as well, just for good measure.

"It was just supposed to a test," said Bown. "But the hackers permanently altered the software so that no matter whom you vote for come this fall's 2008 Presidential election, Ron Paul will be the winner."

Bown refused to take any questions regarding the hackers' discovery of Hillary Clinton being the projected winner, before they changed it to Ron Paul.

"That's besides the point now," said Bown. "We have to remain focused on the task at hand, our voting system is fragile and vulnerable and we must not spare any expense to ensure clean and fair elections to the people. We must reprogram…I mean deprogram the computers before the fall 2008 elections so we can get Hillary…I mean so we can see whom the people vote for."

An encrypted message was emailed to this reporter assuring everybody that the computers will automatically reset themselves before the 2008 elections to properly record whomever the people vote for on Election Day, so help us God.
