|ES&S must take responsibility for fulfilling the contracts they chose to sign in servicing those states to which they pitched their wares. Clearly, they saw a huge opportunity for making millions of dollars via the Help America Vote Act (HAVA) billions of dollars in federal funding for states to upgrade their voting equipment. What Secretary Ireland is ignoring is that ES&S was presented with an apple from which they have taken a bite that was too big and they are now choking on that bite and it is ultimately the voters - who Ireland is obligated to serve -- that will end up being hurt in the bargain. Already, WV counties are talking about ignoring the HAVA mandate to provide accessible voting for voters with disabilities. How many more voters will have to suffer before Secretary Ireland and others admit they made a mistake.|
