i have a question about election fraud...
i keeping quiet about this (hence the smaller font) as maybe, just maybe, this will happen and i don't want to give it away, but ever since election fraud was first suspected and investigated, research articles have indicated diebold machines might have a "back door" port that allowed for manipulation of data from off site through wireless technology.

if so, why couldn't some dem commandos set themselves up at vulnerable election sites to fix the data that has been manipulated by repub technicians? these cyber-commandos could monitor the election tallies from outside the building (say, in the parking lot or street) and when fraud is detected, correct the numbers.

is this possible? maybe it's already in the plans? (if so, don't tell me--it might expose the plan to the enemy, but i was just wondering if this plan is possible...)

1. anything is possible with those machines, but the real problem
is the secret vote counting. no one has to "hack" into the machines if the vote counting software is rigged ahead of time. since it's all proprietary (secret) code on the machines, it's the insiders at Diebold that have complete, unfettered access to do whatever they want with the election results.

but your scenario is also true. given the proven vulnerabilities, it is possible for multiple people and multiple sources to be trying to hack into the same system, overriding each other and etc. it's a complete mess.
