Romney’s ORCA Project And How It May Have Been Targeted By The Protectors

Crossposted from Occupy For Accountability

 

Two weeks ago we published a letter we received at our whistleblower Post Office Box from a shadowy group of cyber sleuths called “The Protectors.”  In short, the letter stated that the group installed a firewall on servers that were going to be used by Karl Rove to manipulate election results.  Moreover, the letter stated that the group also caused the catastrophic failure of Team Romney’s ORCA get out the vote project.

Karl Rove Loses Election After Being Checkmated By Cyber Sleuths?

Last month, we offered a million dollar reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of anyone who rigged a federal election on November 6th.  We urged computer experts to contact us with information about any election manipulation of the tabulation results.

We Received A Letter

On November 12th, we received a letter from “The Protectors,” apparently a group of white hat cyber sleuths, mentioning our reward and stating that two months ago, they began monitoring the “digital traffic of one Karl Rove, a disrespecter of the Rule of Law, knowing that he claimed to be Kingmaker while grifting vast wealth from barons who gladly handed him gold to anoint another King while looking the other way.”

“The Protectors” said that they had identified the digital structure of Rove’s operation and of ORCA, a Republican get out the vote software application.  After finding open “doors” in the systems, they created a “password protected firewall” called “The Great Oz,” and installed it on servers that Rove planned to use on election night to re-route and change election results “from three states.” 

Huffington Post: Karl Rove Calls For Republicans To Replicate Howard Dean’s 50-State Strategy

-By Sarah Bufkin

November 13, 2012- After challenging Fox News' call of the election for President Barack Obama, Karl Rove is back to strategizing how the Republican Party can win future elections.

"I hate to say it, but we need to copy what Howard Dean did, and that is make our ground game in all 50 states," Rove told Sean Hannity on Monday. "While we had a reasonably good ground game in places like Ohio and Florida — look, we didn't have a ground game in a lot of these states with Senate races and so we lost North Dakota by 3,300 votes. We lost [Montana] by 17,000 votes. We need to have a better ground game in all 50 states."

Huffington Post: Krazy Karl: He’s Come Undone

-By James Moore

November 9, 2012- When Karl Rove dissembled on national TV election night, America got a rare glimpse at the psychological frailty that has long maintained the dark prince of right-wing politics. He does not spend very much time connected to reality and lives on a planet composed of beliefs and numbers he convinces himself are true, regardless of evidence to the contrary. Rove has spoken in the past of "manufactured realities" that can be used to sway voter opinion but he has never acknowledged those fantastical plains and their imaginary castles are also where he finds comfort.

Crooks & Liars: Montana Passes Referendum Declaring Corporations are not People

-By Diane Sweet

November 8, 2012- An overlooked development from Montana on election night, a referendum to state that corporations don’t have constitutional rights has unofficially passed by a 75 percent to 25 percent margin. Initiative number 166 stated that “corporations are not entitled to constitutional rights because they are not human beings,” and thus is a blow to the Citizen’s United ruling that helped make this presidential election the most expensive one ever.

NBC News: Karl Rove’s election debacle: Super PAC’s spending was nearly for naught

By Michael Isikoff

November 8, 2012- Karl Rove was the political genius of the George W. Bush era — the architect of the last Republican president's two electoral victories. But this week, he may have had the worst election night of anybody in American politics.

Not only did Rove insist on Fox News that Ohio was still winnable for Republican challenger Mitt Romney after all the TV networks had called it for President Barack Obama — causing anchor Megyn Kelly to march down to the Fox "decision desk" mavens, who assured her on air that they were "99.9 percent" confident in their call — but his trailblazing "independent" super PAC operation was virtually shut out on election night.
