A source with the McCain campaign here in the Midlands just passed on a report that the voting machines in Horry County have broken down.
But that’s not the really bad, or astounding, news.
The bad news is that they’ve run out of paper ballots, and are turning voters away from the polls.
If this is right, it’s extremely bad news for John McCain, and for those of us who think it’s important for our country that he be the nominee. And whomever you support, if you care about our republic, you’d have to agree with the McCain guy: "That’s a damned shame."
So what I want to know is, is this just one of these doomsday rumors that fly around on election days, or have any of y’all down on the coast experienced this? Gordon, you live down that way, right? What’s the word? Anyone else?
