Guest Blogged by John Gideon of VotersUnite.org The media is being fairly silent today. Hillsborough Co Florida is still in the news with some reports that there may be a million dollars of more that are missing. The county is trying to do an audit while, at the same time, an outside audit is being done. The ex-supervisor of elections claims that the outside audit will find nothing wrong (of course he will say that right up to the point that the auditors announce they found money misspent or lost).

We've also got reports of what may be a new problem from Montgomery Co Ohio. In this case votes were lost due to the use of a "broken" Diebold/Premier memory card. Of course, Diebold/Premier will do an investigation so they can figure out how to blame the problem on the voter or election workers....
