Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney may have the ability to swindle Ohio voters simply through the voting machine.

New reports claim that Romney owns stock in Hart Intercivic, the company responsible for calculating the voting results in Hamilton County.

This is not the first time voting machines have been called into question during a presidential election. One of the central issues during the controversial 2004 presidential race between George W. Bush and John Kerry involved strange calculations provided by the Diebold voting machines favoring Bush. At the time, the company publicly supported him.

The new report said that investments in these types of companies appear to be a common occurrence.

“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,” said Lee Fang who has analyzed Romney’s investments.

Fang believes that Solamere’s ties to Hart Intercivic and the use of the machines in Cincinnati can influence votes in Romney’s favor.

President Barack Obama’s campaign has received notice about the conflict of interest and a petition has been placed on Change.org entitled, "Attorney General Eric Holder: Investigate Tagg Romney owning voting machines in Ohio."

    Yes the romneys need to be investigated!! There is no way they didn’t know this was a “conflict of interest”!! mitt has how many degrees supposedly?! he knew, just shows how low down and coniving he & his family are with their win at any cost higher than mighty attitudes!! and believe it when he says he will end planned parenthood (which means women who can’t afford cancer screenings for breast and vagina cancers won’t be able to get them!!) mitt also said he would end PBS, and the Latinos & Mexicans better know that he is not their friend either!! when he was talking about that 47% you all were in that number too!! Remember, you are not voting for a “Pope”, you are voting for a “President”!! Our current President believes in God and he also believes in the Constitution!! Let God deal with people you think have a “moral” issue, because we are all sinners not just gay people, but that’s for God to judge!!
