Apparently Donetta Davidson was on the board of directors of the Election Center as of 2004, according to a document I found on freepress.org, certainly not on the EAC website. That doesn't really make her "from" the Election Center, or "trained by Diebold"; it presumably means that she attended board meetings, and beyond that, who knows?

the Election Center was fully funded by the three computerize voting corporations (who have many ties with the far right christians) Many epop;le ahve done the work, myself included. just look it up.

OK, I tried that, and here is something I found:
In 2002, the Houston-based Election Center operated on a $462,000 budget. Executive Director Doug Lewis said Election Center's budget comes mostly from membership dues and training fees.

But he acknowledges accepting up to $10,000 a year in donations from voting-equipment manufacturers like Sequoia Voting Systems and Election Systems & Software.

I looked at the Election Center's 2009 Form 990. It reported about $1.24 million in revenues, of which $183,000 came from "contributions and grants," and almost all the rest came from program service revenues.

Really annoyed that I care more about the accuracy of your statements than you do. I'm guessing you think that you were close enough, but I hope you'll surprise me.
