Scientific American, CBS News, AP, CNN, Wash.Post, NYTimes discuss U.S. Voting Machine Flaws
Dear Citizens and Voters,
Recent (August) articles and videos by Scientific American, The Associated Press, CBS News, The NY Times, The Washington Post, a top Republican cyber-security expert, and others, discuss the flaws of U.S. voting machines.
These articles and videos are particularly important because our national press has not until now diligently informed us on election integrity and voting system issues.
Of specific interest are:
1. The video of Republican security expert Stephen Spoonamore: http://www.velvetrevolution.us/prosecute_rove/images/Spoon_Full.wmv
3. *Today's* CNN's Lou Dobbs report that Diebold/Premier has publicly admitted that its machines drop votes from entire touch-screen memory cards and has warned all jurisdictions that use its machines of the "bug" that can lose hundreds of votes in each county. Lou Dobbs: CNN - Democracy at Risk - A voting machine company admits
to software flaws in Ohio elections. Kitty Pilgrim reports.
NOTE: Any election outcomes implemented Diebold/Premier touchscreen voting machines in the last ten years are in doubt.
Please read these articles or view these videos and support strong, scientific post-election auditing procedures.
