11. Actually, Democrats in General and the Party Leadership in particular KILLED the Holt bill.
Steny Hoyer, et al, were the ones who gutted the bill's provisions that would have had the effect of banning DREs had they been implemented per the original effective date of the bill.

And the Committee on House Administration gutted the software disclosure requirements so much so, that the software that had to be disclosed, EVEN UNDER A NON-DISCLOSURE AGREEMENT, did NOT even include Voting System Source Code.

Frankly, the Dems are often not the brightest lights on the tree, and some of our leading advocates seem to be letting them get away with it rather consistently.
