If a lie is repeated enough times it becomes truth and on that note Tom Bates is not the legitimate Mayor of Berkeley. He did not get 54% of the vote to cancel out the Rank choice voting which is suspicious and red flag number 1. He did not hold anybody in South Berkeley where I was strong and did not get anything in West Berkeley. Central Berkeley was a dog fight between Council member Kriss Worthington, Jack McCormick and I. This means Master Bates would have nearly swept the Berkeley hills to get 54%. I know Mrs. McCormick was strong and I had some backers too so Tom Bates (and his UC buddies) used the Sequoia (programmed by UCB) voting machines to do his dirty work. Finally measures U and V along with Sophie Hahn did not lose. When we came up with the 25,000 dollars to recount all of a sudden it went up to 80,000 dollars to 100,000 dollars to recount. Possible recall in the works.
