Did anonymous stop Karl Rove from stealing Ohio?

Well this is an interesting story to say the least.

Normally I don't give attention to these kinds of topics, as they boarder on conspiracy theory. However, election fraud has been a grave concern of mine ever since I saw an HBO documentary demonstrating how 2000 and 2004's elections could have been rigged. Electronic voting is scarily easy to manipulate, and if the election is close then one could easily get away with the fraud undetected. If this story is true, then it demonstrates that a natural check and balance has emerged as a response to electronic voting fraud. Even if this whole thing is fiction, the very fact that it even feels plausible lessens my fears of electronic voting.

Never the less, I can't help being skeptical of this. It's a great story, but a vague letter is hardly evidence that anonymous indeed stopped Karl Rove from stealing the election. It's perhaps a too convenient explanation for certain oddities on election night. Karl Rove's breakdown on fox news and Romney's lack of a concession speech make a lot more sense if they had planned on stealing the election, but that is conspiracy logic. I don't believe this story right now, but I'm very curious to how it will turn out. I'll be checking wikileaks for the rest of the year ;).
