PC World runs with a story on fixavote.com, a (hopefully) satire site which claims to offer services such as "real-time voter correction," and "enhanced retrospective tallying."
PC World telephoned the website's 800 number, the call was answered by a man identifying himself as Darius Parker, who claimed to be a consultant, and then president of the company. Parker claims had been contacted by representatives of about 30 political campaigns to date.
"They're asking me the details of a specific geographic location and what I can do to enhance the election for them," Parker declined to elaborate on exactly what kind of services he is offering. "If you're not an employee or a representative of a campaign, there's really not much I can tell you," he said.
