    :whip: Increasingly, across America more and more citizens are becoming concerned with election fraud. Voting fraud has been reported all across this country from, Florida, Texas, Philadelphia, San Francisco, Louisiana, St. Louis, Georgia, etc.

    A study by Voter Views Information Systems of Austin and commissioned by the Hidalgo County Republican Party ...http://www.themonitor.com/NewsPub/News/Stories/2002/10/22/10353408291.shtml ...reported that 16,000 unqualified or dead were registered to vote.
    In St. Louis, pets and dead people have cast ballots and the voter rolls have 13,000 more names than the US Census lists... http://www.ncpa.org/iss/gov/2002/pd100702b.html ...

    Computer experts are increasingly concerned about tampering with computer controlled voting machines.
    One company, Diebold Election Systems, has stored many of its files, passwords, encryption keys, testing protocols, etc on the internet...its GEMS software tabulates multiple "sets of books" that can be altered... www.scoop.co.nz/mason/stories/HL0307/S00065.htm .......also...
    www.blackboxvoting.com ...

    Chuck Hagel in his campaign for Senate created some controversy when it was revealed he was a major stockholder in the company that owned and programmed the voting machines in Nebraska... www.commondreams.org/views03/0131.01.htm ...
    http://www.thehill.com/news/012903/hagel.aspx ...

    As more citizens are becoming aware of the possibilities for computer vote fraud...they are calling for a "voter-verified paper trail" a printed receipt verifing a citizen's vote...And Representative Rush Holt has introduced legislation, The Voter Confidence and Increased Accessibility Act of 2003,... www.holt.house.gov/issues2.cfm?id=5996 ...which has as one of its provisions a requirement for this paper record.... a provision for the manufacturers of the voting machines revealing the owners of the companies should be mandatory...Remember the scandal in the mid 80's in Ohio where the FBI had bugged 1200 phones including the phones of Federal Judges...with allegations of tapping into voting computers and altering the outcome of elections...?

    I take it you lost, sorry about that. Somehow though you might want to consider the reason may not have been fraud. Allegations do not truth make, look how easily you put the info out there.

    Yes...i am sure Cincinnatti Bell and the FBI would like to ban that article and numerous other articles that appeared in Ohio newspapers concerning that scandal...and the muti million dollar lawsuits that were filed, but it gives us a glimpse of what some factions will do to gain and obtain power...and manipulate the political process

    Woody, let's just hope that when the electronic voting comes, which the Dems are fighting for, there is a paper trail to back it up.
