    Diebold Vote Company Whistleblower and GOP Cyber Security Expert Both State That Chambliss Senate Race Was Rigged

    I told you so.

    Well, not you actually, but other cyberpeople four years ago.

    And, actually, I never said it about Chambliss because I didn't follow Georgia. I said it about Bush.

    It'll come out. He never won.

    Do you think it is possible that the machines have been built so that they can be coded to throw the vote?

    After ten years, ten years of stating categorically otherwise, Diebold admits their code is flawed and drops votes. Others have written code, again and again, to show that the machines are trivial to hack. They can be hacked to drop votes and flip votes, without leaving a trace. The hack can be uploaded from a thumbdrive in less than a minute.

    Given that, do you think any politicians might be tempted to take advantage of the shortcoming? Politicians, who take money and gifts, take sexual favors, etc etc, would they be corruptible? Or, how about people interested in having certain politicians in office. Would those people be corruptible? Is it possible that people interested in fixing an election might find a way to get access to the machines?

    ~~~~~

    The testimony from these security experts in the original post is damning. They say they think they were ordered to patch democratic machines to throw the election, and the patches didn't do what they said they were supposed to do (fix the clock.)

    ~~~~

    Velvet revolution (FWIW) says Rove (who famously said of the 2006 elections "you have your math I have THE math") is a major player behind throwing elections. Now, coincidentally, Rove just wrote an article in the last couple days saying which of the battleground states McCain must win to win the electoral college. Here is the list:


    Florida, North Carolina, Virginia, Ohio, Missouri, Colorado and Nevada.

    Obama Hasn't Closed the Sale - WSJ.com

    Any bets on how secure the machines in these states are? Like, do you want to bet if they have paper trails, if election officials allow pre-election "sleepovers," if the machines are notoriously hackable? That the secretary of state in those states is republican? I don't know, but it would be interesting to see, don't you think?

    As hard as I try, I can think of nothing, no matter how despicable, lowdown or dirty, that I wouldn't put past a politician.

    I don't think any of them have shot their own mother.

    Looks to me that the Democratic Party has found its excuse if Obama loses.
