53. Aw shuckers! Them one-armed-bandit voting machines are as good as any crap table in Vegas!


We need to help the ELECTORALLY HANDICAPPED. You know, goopers who can't win elections the fair way. We need term limits to get rid of unnecessarily successful Dermacrits! And electronic voting machines need to be installed EVERYWHERE! With all them electrons zippin' around ain't no way to check up on who really got yer vote! Voting while Democrat is ILLEGAL in this country. Dang!

I regret that I can only recommend this thread once.

From the OP:

Diebold regularly manipulated earnings to meet forecasts,

(end snip)

That ain't all they manipulated.

3. Paper, please. Not plastic Not electronic. Designed and operated by Republicans.
The tool that gave us death, theft, lies, personal losses including homes, jobs, education, insurance, health care.

The greatest theives in the decades of existence of this country was facilitated by Diebold and now it is going to a right leaning country that always goes along with deportations, torture, invasion, regime changes, barbarism with the US and UK.

Edited on Wed Jun-02-10 06:44 PM by judesedit
Thank you, Brad! You've been fighting for this a long time, along with BlackBoxVoting. You haven't given up and it is finally going to be prosecuted. We've known for along time, that the software was manipulated to switch the votes from Kerry to Bush. And for many other stolen seats. The perpetrators have already testified to the fact and the information is readily available to anyone interested. Now if only the main stream media would have the guts to expose Diebold and ES&S Sequoia for what they really are. Go bradblog.com! We're almost there.

Diebold should be punished for any criminal acts that it committed. This is a good start.

40. Agreed
Electronic voting as owned and manipulated by the Bush era Rethugs is still sitting there waiting to steal yet another election. Congress and the Justice Dept. should have acted on the crimes of 2000 and 2004 long, long ago. These easily reprogrammed cheat machines are just another Bush-like disaster waiting to happen. Personally, I don't think we can survive another theft by those thugs.

25 million may just be a slap on the wrist for these people who have stolen so much.
Thanks to Brad the SEC got them for insider trading. I wish we could put them away for the high crime of election theft.

46. But the real problem is NOT fixed....
Last fall, ES&S quietly purchased Diebold, giving them 80% of market for electronic voting machings. And it's not just the un-auditable vote-counting; they now also own polling place check-in software (electronic pollbooks), voter registration software and vote-by-mail authentication software.

http://www.benalexandra.com/cool_stuff/diebold_ess.htm

This link has very scary information, all with appropriate citations, regarding what could easily be a mass-manipulation of our elections.

They've already been caught registering voters who thought they were just signing petitions. Getting total registered voter numbers higher gives them more room to fudge numbers.

When you buy a pack of gum, you get a receipt. Why is there no receipt/audit trail on our votes? I can only think of one reason.

54. Damn, could it be?...
...do you suppose that the SEC has enough on these guys that one or more will offer to 'come clean' about Diebold's role in vote rigging - starting with Georgia's '02 Senate and Governor's race - and carrying on through to the '04 vote in Ohio? That would be sweet. To have the rats start to turn on each other once the 'cheese gets binding' or the hush money runs out.

58. The Dominion is coming!
Brad, you are grasping at straws a bit. There is really no insidiousness involved with the name "Dominion" It has a long association with the country of Canada, as in "The Dominion of Canada" (ie colony of Britian) which used to appear on our banknotes and other officialeze. TD is now a player in the American banking sector, T stands for Toronto, guess what the D stands for!?

Why is everyone so excited? Diebold are under investigation for financial fraud, while election fraud is still ongoing and now status quo. How many machines will be in use come November, wherein your prezident becomes a duck (lame).
