ERIC SHAWN: Is it voter fraud or the voter's fault? Voters in three Texas counties claim their votes were switched on voting machines, saying the choice of Donald Trump went to Hillary Clinton instead. That prompted Trump to tweet quote, "A lot of call-ins about vote flipping at the voting booths in Texas. People are not happy. Big lines. What is going on?"
SHAWN: Election officials believe it was inadvertent on Lisa's part and she says her correct vote was cast. In Chambers County, officials blamed a software programming error for machines that simply skipped a race and that has now been resolved. County clerk Heather Hawthorne said "I strongly believe in the integrity of the election process...using paper ballots in the interim, as prescribed by the Texas election code, allowed out vendor to resolve the issue quickly." --
In every recent presidential election, some voters using touch screen machines have claimed their votes were changed too. We reported on this phenomenon last week.
SHAWN: Can a touch screen switch a vote?
PATRICIA KOLB (WARREN COUNTY, NEW JERSEY CLERK): They -- people say they can. I've never seen it do it.
BRET BAIER (HOST): Alright Eric, we have a team here, you and your team looking into serious allegations, if there are any allegations around the country, about voter fraud. There are rumors on the internet, of different stories you see them on many sites, about voting machines somehow connected to George Sorros in 16 different states. What's the truth on this?
SHAWN: No, this one is not true. The company is Smartmatic. It says George Soros does not own it. It's machines are not even being used in the election next month. The only link to Sorros is the company's chairman, Mark Malloch Brown. He is a member of Sorros' Open Society Foundation. By the way we covered him. He was once UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan's chief of staff, Bret.
