Command Central Penalizes Crawford County $12,400

http://myplayfulself.com/wordpress/archives/12631

Oh…and it is MY Fault
Command Central has a Scary Secret


Command Central is the vendor for electronic voting machines in Crawford and many other counties throughout Wisconsin. Who is Command Central? Command Central is a private corporation that supplies election hardware and the programming and tabulation software that goes along with it. Yet they have no real oversight by any government agency, elected official(s), or the judiciary. Therefore the corporation holds a very scary and unique secret that flies in the face of Democracy. In a country that was founded with a constitution to provide a proven structure of checks and balances among the three branches of government, Command Central has none.
Oversight over land development and water quality but not your vote?

What other private corporation providing service to the government is free of checks and balances and oversight? The private companies that contract repair and construct our highways, towers, and bridges are under strict scrutiny. Mining and land development interests must meet exacting standards to insure that drinking water, and the drainage of the land is not compromised. Now comes the irony that is almost embarrassing: where is the oversight when it comes protecting our most vital act in our Democracy – our vote? It is a secret. Not only do we allow Command Central to write secret programming to count our votes, but instead of oversight and scrutiny Command Central’s most undemocratic secret gets protection and blind compliance from elected officials.

When rightfully concerned citizens attempt to verify the accuracy of the machine vote count, or inspect election materials after the vote, they are met by the Government Accountability Board and Kevin Kennedy and County Clerks with obstruction and vilification like so many gnats circling the vote bags like it was spilled koolaid.

2. Outrageous. Kevin Kennedy needs to go. He lobbied FOR electronic machines...

... and outsourced part of our elections to Accenture (Arthur Andersen of Enron fame) for Pete's sake.

Now we have a private company telling us to go suck an egg.

This sucks.

3. I feel a bit faint.... What does this mean?

I am sorry that you feel that your open records request has been denied. I do disagree with this statement in that I have tried very diligently to satisfy your request.
Because you feel that you have been denied, the voting machine cartridges cannot be returned and will remain in my vault.
The taxpayers of Crawford County must now incur costs of $12,400 so that all new cartridges can be burned for the August primary election. I will be providing the Crawford County Independent with the costs for the cartridges as they have requested this information.

4. "What does this mean?"

I would say Clerk Geisler can explain what this written response means in a court of law.
