Guest Blogged by John Gideon of VotersUnite.org In an updated article, Brad Friedman reveals that while the Sequoia spokeswoman Michelle Shafer claims that their Intellectual Property (IP) must be protected, in fact, they don't even own the IP used on their voting systems. It is still owned by Smartmatic of Venezuela, the previous owner of Sequoia.

Does the State Attorney's Office that has jurisdiction in Broward Co Florida really expect us to believe that there is no conflict of interest when the county writes a no-bid contract with ES&S for $5.4M for new optical-scan machines when one of the county commissioner's husbands works for the lobbying firm that represents ES&S? He was also the lobbyist who sold the county $18M worth of junk DREs in 2002. Are they blind or do they just think the voters are stupid?...
