Excerpts of the CIA analyst's warning to EAC about cyber vote fraud that have not been made public

March 26, 12:37 PM 1 comment



Although the U.S. Election Assistance Commission provided CIA analyst Steve Stigall's resume to the public on its website it failed to post his warnings about the dangers of electronic voting machines. John Gideon of Voters Unite filed a Freedom of Information request for a transcript of Stigall's testimony to the Commission after his remarks were not posted. The EAC refused to provide a copy of the transcript and said to wait until they publish it.

"The presenter did not provide the presentation "Computers and Elections: The Growing Potential for Cyber Vote Fraud" to the EAC, so we have no materials responsive to your request. We received the transcript on March 16, 2009, and it will be publically available in the next few days."

Examiner has obtained a copy of Stigall's testimony from an independent source. Let's let Stigall do the talking.

"For several years, I have worked with others in my organization to try and identify foreign threats, emphasis on foreign threats, to important U.S. computer systems. A few years ago it occurred to us that that should include potential foreign threats to the computers upon which the elections in this country are increasingly dependent."

1. Is this another good reason to have paper ballots?

2. Is everyone aware of the silence from our Congress about vote theft and
criminally designed machines? Does anyone care about the machines and other measures taken to win elections?

When Congress isn't looking or acting a person looks to pay offs.

Did anyone hear any Dem presidential nominee talk about vote theft?

Have you ever heard Pres. Obama mention vote theft?

My vote, my Constitution and Bill of Rights, my right to privacy, and traditional separation of church and state - these are my most precious possessions.

3. Virtually nobody.
There's got to be a story behind that. My theory has always been that they want to preserve their own option to steal elections, but maybe it's just stupidity and laziness.

4. I think it's fear -- the ramifications are enormous.
And they go back decades. :scared:
