Guest Blogged by John Gideon of VotersUnite.org Yesterday in this space I told you that yesterday would be the last DVN for the week. Well, that was before today's news. I just couldn't stay away and there are three stories that I feel are important. First in 'National' news are two articles for those interested in Internet voting. Second, as you know I have been discussing Hillsborough Co Florida and the fact that lame-duck election supervisor Buddy Johnson was trying to get $2.3M out of the county to cover cost overruns. Instead of doing as Buddy expected and just giving him the money they began an audit and they are finding more questions than answers. Buddy may have a lot to explain for in the coming months. And from Maryland comes the news that the state has filed an $8.5M claim against Diebold/Premier to cover the state's costs to fix flaws in the voting system the state purchased from the vendor.

Enjoy the day tomorrow....
