3. This new editor Sean Flaherty wasn't around in the trenches when all this started....

... yeah, Iowa citizens campaigned for and got a bill passed for paper ballots and scannners quickly. Maybe that's why VV hired Flaherty to work for them over more experienced people in other states. But we shall see what happens under Iowa's new, conservative GOP Secretary of State.

I don't think Verified Voting, VotersUnite, VoterAction, BBV, or any of the big name organizations have a clue what to do to fix what is wrong with our elections. And the hand counted paper or nothing crowd is just as clueless or even worse.

We'll miss Joyce. She was around when all this started, and she is one of the few still involved with Election Reform who really know the ropes and really know the history.

Back to lurking for another year or so of watching nothing happen here.
