NY: Voting Machine Contract Gets Justice Dept. Review

By Jerry Markon
Washington Post Staff Writer

September 16, 2010


Federal prosecutors in Manhattan are investigating the awarding of a $50 million contract by New York City in January to Election Systems & Software, according to sources familiar with the probe. The company provided voting machines used in Tuesday's elections in New York City and the District. The sources spoke on condition of anonymity, because it is unclear whether any charges will be filed.


One subject of the criminal investigation, sources said, is Anthony Mangone, a New York lawyer who was indicted in January on racketeering and other, unrelated federal charges stemming from real estate projects in Yonkers, N.Y.

Mangone was a lobbyist for ES&S throughout 2009, the period in which it was seeking the $50 million voting machine contract from New York City, lobbying records show.
