Guest Blogged by John Gideon of VotersUnite.org Today California SoS Debra Bowen announced that she is suing ES&S for nearly $15M for selling uncertified voting machines to counties in the state. The total includes $9.72M for selling the 972 machines and $5M to reimburse the counties. This is the second suit announced in the past three weeks against ES&S and the third lawsuit to be announced against a voting machine vendor in that time period.

"How much does it cost to fix an election?" VotersUnite.Org has just received copies of a great new novel by Mark Coggins, mystery writer and Shamus and Barry award-nominated author of the August Riordan series. We were honored to have been asked to review the book a few months ago and our review included the following opinion; "What could be better than a fun fiction about the real dangers of electronic voting? Coggins shows us that elections can be hacked and the cover-up can be murder." The book is gripping and laugh-out-loud funny in places and it is another example of the fact that election integrity is no longer conspiracy theory from "tin-foil hats". Read more about the book at VotersUnite.Org and help us out with a $50 or more donation and get a copy of the book as a premium. You help VotersUnite continue our valuable work and you get a great book.
