Sinfonian of Blast Off! says Diebold has been okayed for Florida elections:
Truth be told, I'm not even all that concerned about the speed with which the certification occurred. What really bothers me is that a wingnut Secretary of State certified a wingnut voting machine manufacturer.
We need to keep a wary eye on Diebold. Florida isn't exactly known for its accurate elections, you know? Diebold certainly won't improve the situation.And Eli of Multi Medium reviews Dan Rather's broadcast about electronic voting fraud:
Electronic voting... is what will keep Republicans in power...
Dan Rather is at it with the inconvenient truths again:
…[T]his week’s edition of ”Dan Rather Reports” explores… the very paper from which punch-card ballots were made, and glaring shortcuts in how certain touch-screen voting machines were produced.
”Our story is not that the election would have turned out differently in 2000 if certain things hadn’t happened. No one can know that,” Rather said Monday. But his eight-month investigation has ”dug down vertically as deep as we were capable of doing” to probe the brewing problems — including on-camera interviews with workers who had a front-row seat.
The hourlong news program premieres Tuesday at 8 p.m. EDT on cable’s HDNet channel, with subsequent re-airings and streaming online video.
Rather’s report begins with the current congressional bid by Democrat Christine Jennings, who lost her 2006 race by 369 votes in Florida’s Sarasota County, where touch-screen machines showed 18,000 ballots with no candidate selected in that race.
