But, of course, that could never happen in an Online Election, right? And, even if it did, we'd probably find out about it...a year or ten later.
At one point, FBI agents reportedly had identified a suspect in the SCU grade-changing case, a 25-year old electrical engineering student at the University. After three agents visited his home, according to Matt Liebowitz of SecurityNewsDaily, the suspect, Mark Loiseau, made light of the incident, describing the visit on Twitter "like something off of primetime tv! Right down to the dialogue. They even banged on my door instead of ringing."
"The best part was when one of the agents was like 'we just want the truth,'" Loiseau described in another tweet, "& my roommate was like 'YOU CAN'T HANDLE THE TRUTH!' True story."
Speaking of being unable to handle the truth, we're quite certain that Internet Voting proponents -- particularly the private corporations who stand to make millions if not billions off such schemes, and the elected officials and former election officials they have bought to help their dream (democracy's nightmare) come true -- will pay little mind to what happened last month at California State San Marcos.
They'll simply continue to ignore the experts and tell the public that such a thing could never happen with their Internet Voting schemes which employ "secure" "military grade encryption" or some such bullshit, and the media will dutifully repeat it and ignore all other concerns. Because, after all, the 'younger generation does everything online and they're used to online elections!' They certainly are.
Other than that, Internet Voting remains a great idea. It's just democracy, after all. What could possibly go wrong?
