Perhaps best that this is posted without comment.

According to Reuters, "Companies with a board member who has ties to a winning political party enjoy a significant bounce in their share price following an election."

In addition, the study by the Berlin-based European School of Management and Technology showed that "Seven days after the U.S. presidential election in 2000 companies in the benchmark Standard & Poor’s 500 Index with board connections to the winning Republican party posted a nearly 3 percent increase in share price."

And that election was stolen in Florida when no one could figure out what to do with hanging chads.

Who says conspiracy theories are not true?
