1. Won't be me
Edited on Sat Dec-10-11 08:50 PM by Awsi Dooger
Haven't posted here for a long time but I enjoyed the forum and its contributors during the heyday.

Of course, a forum of this type only peaks after a narrow presidential defeat, so in that sense I wish we had remained 99.9999% pure and shiftless, red or otherwise.

2. Yes, things used to be different in here....

... the problems with our elections are still out there.

I will keep fighting for fair elections as long as I can -- until I can't.

O why, oh why, oh why-o, did Kerry dump Ohio?

Nevermind, I already know. The Ragin' Cajun's Cager or what-the-fuck-ever. :hi:

3. Venango County PA: Disturbing Findings in Forensic Audit of Electronic Voting Machines
According to the Initial Report from a landmark independent forensic audit of the Venango County, PA, touch-screen voting system --- the same system used in dozens of counties across the state and country --- someone used a computer that was not a part of county's election network to remotely access the central election tabulator computer, illegally, "on multiple occasions." Despite the disturbing report, as obtained by The BRAD BLOG and posted in full below, we may never get to learn who did it or why, if Venango's County Commissioners, a local judge, and the nation's largest e-voting company have their way. And that's not all we won't get to find out about.

The battle for election integrity continues in Venango, with the County Commissioners teaming up with e-voting vendor Election Systems & Software, Inc. (ES&S) on one side, and the county's renegade interim Republican-majority Board of Elections on the other. The Commissioners and ES&S have been working to spike the independent scientific forensic audit of the county's failed electronic voting machines that was commissioned by the interim Board of Elections. Making matters worse, the Board has now been removed from power by a county judge, a decision they are attempting to appeal as the three-person board and their supporters continue to fight the entrenched establishment for transparency and accountability in the rural Western Pennsylvania county.

4. Venango County story spreads to truthout!
Please kick, "like" on facebook, spread to your own facebook page, and FORWARD WIDELY!

Remote access of voting machines? Log files jumping for no reason? And a judge shuts down the first-ever investigation of its kind into these problems in Pennsylvania, before the exam is even finished? The troubles with electronic voting have not gone away, in fact that are getting worse and worse as these machines get older and older.
