    Researchers reveal 'extremely serious' vulnerabilities in e-voting machines
    by Teresa Riordan ยท Posted September 13, 2006; 12:46 p.m.
    In a paper published on the Web today, a group of Princeton computer scientists said they created demonstration vote-stealing software that can be installed within a minute on a common electronic voting machine. The software can fraudulently change vote counts without being detected.

    "We have created and analyzed the code in the spirit of helping to guide public officials so that they can make wise decisions about how to secure elections," said Edward Felten, the director of the Center for Information Technology Policy, a new center at Princeton University that addresses crucial issues at the intersection of society and computer technology.

    The potential for fraud was well documented in the Presidential election results in 2004, most notably in Ohio. If the media hadn't been so busy trying to obscure and downplay the hundreds of incidents in Ohio, and distract us with other events like the Ukrainian election, we'd have had a different President. The recount was fraudulently conducted, and the results of the recount of actual paper ballots (the "provisional" and "absentee" ballots), showed a strong preference for John Kerry. Interesting how the electronic voting machine results favored Bush, and the actual paper ballot count favored Kerry.

    Of the 66 Ohio Counties, 63 shifted more toward Kerry on the combined "provisional" + "absentee" count. In fact, if those counts had been mirrored in the electonic voting machine counts, Kerry would have won in Ohio by over 500,000 votes.

    And of course in the future rather than have people actually vote we can just determibne the winner by how they voted last time, or how a certain block of voters voted.

    Your claim that the MSM aided and abetted George Bush is laughable.
