[Excerpt.  Original article has live links.]

From Alastair Thompson, Scoop Co-Editor & General

Scoop Independent News - a news website based in
Wellington New Zealand - has been instrumental in
bringing the vulnerability of the electronic US
election infrastructure to public notice over the
past six years. (See background below & American
Coup II - 1999 to 2008 )

For the 2008 US Election Scoop is launching a
campaign to raise profile around past and present
electronic voting machinery vulnerability issues
which even after six years of reporting and
investigation in independent online media remain
trivialized in most mainstream publications.

Scoop has decided to run the campaign at its own
cost through the US election season as a
contribution to US Democracy. However it is
seeking help and support from the voting public to
help make the effort a success.

The Scoop campaign for US Election Integrity will
have 2 components:

1. An expected 2 million advertising impressions
in Scoop Independent News's Scoops/Comment and
World News sections - both heavily read by a US
based audience - will be devoted to increasing
awareness in the issue through the month of
October and November 2008. This advertising space
- usually sold for around USD$15,000 a month -
will be offered for free to election reform news
websites, documentary makers, authors and activist
groups to raise the profile of their activities
and publications.

2. Meanwhile Scoop Independent News will devote
editorial resources to acting as a clearing house
for up-to-the minute news on election integrity
efforts throughout the United States. Scoop
provides a particularly good platform for
performing this task as it is a) highly Google
ranked b) well known to election integrity
activist communities and c) overseas and therefore
relatively invulnerable to interference.

The advertising inventory being made available for
this effort will reach an estimated 500,000 to
1,000,000 Americans over the period of the
election campaign and its immediate aftermath when
evidence of any vote rigging is likely to emerge
and need exposure in the media.
