6. that someone would be the Abbie Hoffman of the Electoral Reform movement
and they would go to jail for it. A bad thing.

E-voting would be dead. A good thing.

Someone willing to sacrifice their future for the good of their country's democratic process can be viewed as either noble or dead wrong. Following the scandal would be an endless round of "do the ends justify the means" argument. Hacking the vote is shaky ground by either side.

Right now, we are screaming that ends don't justify the means (lying to get Saddam out) in Iraq - this would be viewed as hypocritical to those who wish to paint the left in a bad light.
