What ever happened to the BBV 2004 poll tape fiasco?
If I remember correctly there was video of signed poll tapes being dumped.

4. Whatever happened to that matter she had her attorney write a letter
to McPherson (CA's SoS) about in December 2005?
McPherson was supposed to allow an outside "examination" as required by CA law.
BBV/Harri Hursti were "invited" to conduct the test.
But suddenly the "invitation" was withdrawn.

B*v made lots of noise about it. I'm sure she didn't make any $$$ to support her efforts. :eyes:
But nothing further was heard, as far as I know.

The system components they were asking to test were:

... the Diebold Election Systems component: the programmed
electronic ballad box memory cards used in optical scan and touch
screen voting systems (Component).

This request was made pursuant
to California Elections Code Section 19202 (19202 Request), which
provides:

ANY PERSON OR CORPORATION OWNING OR BEING INTERESTED IN ANY
VOTING SYSTEM OR PART OF A VOTING SYSTEM MAY APPLY TO THE
SECRETARY OF STATE TO EXAMINE IT AND REPORT ON ITS ACCURACY
AND EFFICIENCY TO FULFILL TIS (sic) PURPOSE. THE SECRETARY OF STATE
SHALL COMPLETE HIS EXAMINATION WITHOUT UNDUE DELAY.

<snip>

Accordingly, please contact me upon receipt of this letter as to whether
the Secretary of State will allow Black Box Voting's 19202 Inspection and,
if so, which Protocols he is agreeable to. If we do not receive a response
to this letter by December 16, 2005, Black Box Voting will be forced to pursue
other available legal remedies.


Alas, these explosive newsflashes come and go.

:boring:
