ABC Claims Ron Paul Supporters Voted Multiple Times

CCN (Crazy Cal News) - "The Internets" - In an article on, Rick Klein flat out lies about the ABC Internet Polls, claiming that its voters voted multiple times for Ron Paul. The article reads,

Since online polls aren't scientific -- people choose to take them, and many people vote multiple times -- doing well in them doesn't necessarily mean a campaign is on the move.

But Internet buzz can have a carry-over effect, said Peter Greenberger, an online strategist at New Media Strategies and a former Democratic political operative.

"It's evidence of something -- either passionate supporters, active supporters, or just one very savvy supporter who's able to vote several thousand times," Greenberger said. "If it leads to one or two stories in the mainstream media, that could lead to a bounce online, and could lead to some fundraising successes."

To see if it was possible to vote multiple times, reporter, CalJennings, tried to vote for Ron Paul a second time. He got the message that he had already voted and the site would not let him vote again.

"This clearly shows that there is a conspiracy to keep Ron Paul out of the news," said reporter CalJennings. "It seems that is the only place to get reliable news anymore."

The reporter would like to note that it is a sad state of affairs when the only reliable news reporting agency is a satire/parody/humor site.

The funny story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
