One of the world's largest ATM manufacturers and, formerly,one of the largest manufacturers of electronic voting systems,has been indicted by federal prosecutors for bribery and falsification of documents.The charges represent only the latest in a long series of criminal and/or unethical misconduct by Diebold, Inc and their executives over the past decade.The Plain Dealer reports that court documents filed this week by the U.S. Justice Department allege executive and company employees from Diebold's Asia Pacific region paid '$1.75 million in bribes, gifts and trips to dozens of employees of banks in China and Indonesia'...Despite their years-long global crime spree, it seems Diebold will receive yet another slap on the wrist, and another polite request to please not to do that again. You and I should be so lucky next time we run into repeated trouble with the law. Good luck with that.
