Subject: RE: BS: Help! The computer ate OH & FL votes!
Researchers at Princeton have devised easily-inserted malicious code that can be loaded in less than a minute by literally anyone, can steal votes, make all electronic and paper copies consistent (and fraudulent), and then erase itself leaving no trace. Worse, it can be installed as a virus that migrates from machine to machine on Diebold's memory cards.
See a demonstration and details here.
My faith in the results of our last several cycles of elections is now zero.
If electronic voting is not forbidden or made truly secure (by a non-partisan consortium), our Democracy is dead.
Okay Bush people, go ahead and call me a sore loser. But what if our hackers are better than your hackers in November, or in 2008?
Will you be sore losers then?
