Thou shalt not bear false witness

by Feòrag

United States: Fine, upstanding Christians, the American Family Association, have admitted doctoring the results of their poll on same-sex marriage.

An astute observer noticed that unlike votes in places other than Florida and where Diebold machines are used, the number of votes for the answer, I favor legalization of homosexual marriage went down rather than up as the AFA cooked the books. In the first screen shot at 10:57 AM, the percentage is 16.10 (21075 votes); in the second taken at 11:22, it is 14.05 (17985 votes). One person commented in the comments area of the posting at 11:33 that it was down to 13%.

The AFA claims that they were simply removing multiple votes, even though their polling system should prevent that anyway. AFA Marriage Poll Rigged, Results Doctored - morons.org, 17th December 2003.
