Guest Blogged by John Gideon of VotersUnite.org In his "S.1487: A Deconstruction" Robert Bancroft points out; "One cannot help but notice a pattern in the fiscal priorities set by this bill. " Money to help States develop training programs: none " Money to help States establish early voting programs: none " Money to help States perform rigorous audits: none " Money for the Commission to give to manufacturers for research: $4,000,000 " Money for States to give to manufacturers for machines: $600,000,000 The bill is quick to clarify that the $600 million grant in no way prevents States from also tapping the $650 million granted by HAVA. That puts the total amount of American taxpayer dollars siphoned off to voting-machine manufacturers at $1.25 billion. Are the authors certain that the American people agree with these priorities? Even after handing so much of our money over to these business interests, the bill still does not provide the one thing we have requested: a paper ballot."...
