Well here's a third article from our friends at Patch.

The first two I posted ignored the upcoming lawsuits.

While this article repeats the lie that levers don't produce a HAVA compliant paper trail, it does mention one of the two lawsuits.

Nassau County filed suit, claiming that the state act violates the New York Constitution by introducing voting machines that are inaccurate and subject to tampering. The suit is still pending.

Nassau Democratic Election Commissioner William Biamonte has been fighting to keep our lever machines that we have been using for decades.

"We are being forced to switch to correct a problem that did not exist in New York," Biamonte said. "People trust the lever machines and are comfortable with them. They are reliable, accurate and difficult to tamper with. Although federal money is funding the transition to the new voting machines, their operation will cost Nassau County taxpayers several million dollars a year more to operate a burden that Long Island taxpayers cannot afford."
