LA PORTE COUNTY PUTS KIBOSH
ON VOTING MACHINES
LaPorte County, Ind., has put the
kibosh on voting machines.
The LaPorte County Board had
granted a $30,000 appropriation for
the purchase of machines when the
scandal in Chicago came.
LaPorte stood up and took notice.
The million-dollar Chicago deal
frightened them. They sent some
one here to investigate. What he re
ported back to them caused them to
lose their enthusiasm. And now the
$30,000 for voting machines will be
used for other purposes.
