$100,000 Reward
FOR INFORMATION ON HOW SAXBY CHAMBLISS "WON" THE GEORGIA SENATE RACE IN 2002!

Velvet Revolution ("VR"), a non-profit dedicated to clean and honest elections, today offers a $100,000 reward for hard information leading to the arrest and conviction of any person or persons who helped to rig the 2002 Senate race in Georgia in favor of Saxby Chambliss.  That election pitted the war hero Max Cleland, a popular incumbent, against far-right novice Saxby Chambliss.  The pre-election polls showed Cleland with a comfortable lead--and yet Chambliss "won" by a wide margin.
 
To date, the truth behind that upset "victory" (and the equally surprising win by Sonny Perdue, the rightist candidate for governor) has been confirmed by three different whistle-blowers-- including Chris Hood, who worked for Diebold in 2002.

In a video interview with VR, Hood has stated that, not long before Election Day, he was ordered by Bob Urosevich, president of Diebold's voting-machine division (and a self-proclaimed GOP partisan) to place illegal software patches on hundreds of voting machines in the Democratic-leaning counties of Fulton and DeKalb.  Hood, and the other Diebold employees involved in that
stealth operation, were told not to discuss these patches with any state officials. Documents provided to VR by Hood show that Cathy Cox, then Georgia's Secretary of State, had no knowledge of those patches at the time.
 
Hood's account has been corroborated by cyber-security expert Stephen Spoonamore, who has stated that Hood gave him a copy of the Georgia patch, which he analyzed and then turned it over to the FBI Cyber Squad in Washington for investigation. According to Spoonamore, the patch
could have been used to flip the votes cast on Diebold's machines from Cleland to Chambliss. In his expert opinion, Max Cleland was the real winner of that election, which Saxby Chambliss stole with Diebold's help.
 
Georgia still uses Diebold's paperless touchscreen machines for its elections. Computer scientists have shown that those machines are highly vulnerable to rigging via computer patches, or viruses, that can be installed in seconds. This is a matter of grave concern, as Georgia is about to hold a runoff election between Chambliss and his Democratic challenger, Jim Martin. The runoff will start on Dec. 2 (while early voting starts tomorrow, on Nov. 18).
 
VR wants to ensure that this contest is not manipulated electronically by partisans intent on helping Chambliss keep his Senate seat. In order to prevent another stolen race in Georgia, those involved in rigging the 2002 election must now be exposed and prosecuted.
