Officials: Sandy-stricken areas will vote Tuesday 'come hell or high water'

Elizabeth, New Jersey (CNN) - Four days before Election Day and four days after Superstorm Sandy ravaged the East Coast, Dennis Kobitz, administrator for the Union County Board of Elections, is on his way to polling sites to check on voting machine deliveries.

It would normally take Kobitz a few minutes to cross into the nearby city of Roselle from the Board of Elections office in Elizabeth, a city near Newark. This time it stretches into a 30-minute adventure.

    Bomb threats at voter stations in FL, power outages at voting sites in Ohio. Sure sounds like republican shenanigans again to me. Oh, and there is also this:

    Mitt and Ann Romney were notified today that they have been charged of ethics violations.

    Remember... this is not a criminal (jail) or civil (probably settlement) charge. It is ethical, which at minimum would discredit his corporations (he'd then dissolve them) and probably end in a fine or settlement which would only be a fraction of the actual profit. Depending on how this shook out, criminal charges of fraud (based on the viability of the company vs the 12.9b payout) might follow. That would mean jail. If he were president, he would prob be impeached and removed from office giving us President Ryan.

    If Romney is elected, FEMA will be dismantled and the Sandy-stricken areas will be own their own.
