Author 5304
Message Melissa Gonzales
Here is an article that shows problems with the machines and the
election process as well as the election officials who did not release
this letter to the Jennings people.

Sarasota officials ignored warning about voting machines
An alert on glitches came ahead of recent election troubles but no one
followed up.

From the article...
And as the controversy swirled into another national debate about
another troubled Florida election, state and county officials never
told anyone about the company warning that some of its touch-screen
machines could produce a seconds-long delay before recording votes.

"Clearly we should have gotten this letter," said Sam Hirsh, attorney
for Christine Jennings, the Democrat who lost. "I think they knew it
was a smoking gun. This goes to the very core of the case."
