$10,000 check not from us, Diebold says



$10,000 check not from us, Diebold says


Election official punished for passing donation along


From staff and wire reports


Diebold Corp., the Green-based maker of electronic voting machines, is denying any involvement in a $10,000 check one of its outside consultants handed to Franklin County's elections director on a day the board was opening bids for new voter-registration software.

But that check has landed the Columbus-area election director in hot water.

Matthew Damschroder will lose 30 days' pay for forwarding a $10,000 check to the Republican Party from an outside consultant representing Diebold.

Damschroder acknowledged last week that the consultant, Pasquale ``Pat'' Gallina of Celebrezze & Associates, came to his office and offered $10,000 in January 2004 as the board was considering which firm to award its software business.

Diebold spokesman Mike Jacobsen said Celebrezze & Associates was employed by Diebold to promote the company's touch-screen election system. He said that if the consulting firm is proved to have provided the check in the name of Diebold, it will be fired.

5. will be fired if a criminal action has been filed
and a conviction found. Until then, it will just be standard republican operation procedures.
