2. What did you expect?
The audit laws in NY are only so strong. Cuomo was screaming to get it over with. The Dem lawyer comes into to court and quotes bumper stickers. Bo Lipari's New Yorkers for Verified Voting are mum. And the EI movement only enjoys the support of Common Cause.

The Dems lawyer should have immediately put up Phillip Stark, as they did in the lower court, and let him finish his testimony that was cut short there. A computer scientist, like Stanislevic who was stranded in the bull-pen last week, would have been a nice touch.
But quoting Stalin? :wtf: Did he bring a torch and pitchfork, too? The judge was right to silence him.

Maybe they'll take the case to the "Highest Court in the Land". :) That's where it probably would have gone had the appellates sided with those who want actual verified voting.

But there's little doubt that this is a victory for Lipari, NYVV, and ES&S. Audits and recounts scare the hell out of them all.

Lipari convinced many in the state that the paper ballot would be available for counting if there were any questions. Apparently, he's not available when there are questions. I've got a question or two about him.
