Richland County, SC — I’d like to congratulate Michael Letts for showing us that one person can affect the system, and I wish him success as his protest of the Nov. 6 transportation sales tax referendum moves forward.
One has to question Warren Bolton’s thought process when he said, “Officials didn’t follow the law in terms of having the proper number of voting machines at each polling place. But, thus far, all evidence suggests the cause was bad planning and terrible math.” Following that logic, a driver who miscalculates the number of drinks he had before getting behind the wheel is not a drunk driver; he’s just mathematically challenged.
Mr. Bolton goes on to suggest that one reason Mr. Letts should discontinue his efforts is that he lost an appeal to the Richland County Board of Elections. Correct me if I’m wrong, but aren’t those folks the brain surgeons who re-hired former elections director Lillian Mc Bride? I am of the opinion that the citizens of Richland County will never know the true story of the election debacle until law enforcement intervenes and starts putting this cast of characters under oath.
