"There's a lot to be concerned about here," said Maryland Gov. Ehrlich recently about the state's Diebold TS voting machines. "I think the system is fabulous," said Linda Lamone, administrator for the state Board of Elections. "It's probably the most secure system in the country." / "Is it even possible to ensure the trustworthiness of the hardware and software in a voting system? My opinion is no," said David Dill, a professor of computer science at Stanford University and a critic of electronic voting. / "Basically, all election officials say, 'We're as pure as the driven snow, and nobody has ever cheated,' " said John Washburn, a Milwaukee software analyst. "It's the same as if you're a bank and you say, 'OK, I'm going to assume that my tellers will never steal money from the till.' "...
