Guest Blogged by John Gideon of A Sequoia VP told Riverside Co California officials that the company may be willing to discuss a rebate or credit if state or federal regulators decertify their equipment. May be willing? The county, as with every county who has purchased these machines, needs to demand their money (our tax money) back from the vendors. Sequoia sold their machines as being accessible. They aren't accessible as proven by the California "Top-To-Bottom" review. They sold their machines as meeting the voting systems standards. As proven by the source code review team Sequoia uses banned software components. May be willing? If Sequoia misrepresented their system at anytime to those who were spending our money then Sequoia needs to give our money back or go to court and prove that they haven't misrepresented their product. And the other vendors need to do the same in other counties across the nation. Meanwhile, KY has discovered that machines used in their largest county were not state certified; more on the retirement of Conny McCormack; and the four major vendors are dragging their feet in providing information to Colorado that is necessary to allow the state to do court mandated inspections....
