Meet control central... Wisconsin votes from 3000 machines tallyed in Minesota
above documentary.

400,000 votes still missing from WI state data (Bev Harris )

Meet Command Central, the uncertified out of state People in Charge of many of Wisconsin Voting Machines

Meet the women in charge ?__SQUARESPACE_CACHEVERSION=1341784725593

This is the woman who has control over the programming of 3,000 voting machines in 46 districts in the State of Wisconsin.



•Regardless of her achievements, whenever anyone is given the sole responsibility to program our voting machines, we are placing the vitality of our entire democracy in their hands.

Forty-six Wisconsin counties and 3,000 voting machines are being controlled by a two-person company operating out of a strip mall in Minnesota.

By law, voting machines must be publicly tested prior to every election. A Programmable Read Only Memory (P.R.O.M.) pack or cartridge is used to reprogram the machines with the details of the current election. Clerks receive two PROM packs from Command Central: A PRE-LAT, which is used a week or so before the election for the public test, and an “Official” pack used on Election Day. Whoever programs the PROM packs has the ability to inject all the machines with a virus that will flip votes only on Election Day. With two different PROM packs in play, it’s easy to see how public tests could be flawless and the machines could still flip votes Election Day.

In his report of his experience with the November 2010 gubernatorial election for Scott Walker, John Washburn, an election integrity investigator and professional software tester for almost 20 years, states, “I have been to dozens of voting system test sessions and have never seen any of this faux ‘testing’ actually test the voting system software correctly. This is the professional opinion of a software tester testing software since 1994.”

Washburn also filed an open records request with Command Central to examine the PROM packs from the July 15, 2011 recall election in wards 1-4 in Fox Point. When they responded that it would cost him $450, Washburn filed a complaint alleging that Command Central LLC wasn’t cooperative in responding to the open records request.

Command Central Makes Its Move—A Shady Deal With WI County Clerks
Last September, Election Integrity investigators discovered that unbeknownst to average citizens of Wisconsin, Command Central sent those 46 districts an offer: trade out your old Optech Insight Scanner for two DRE Touch Screen models, at no charge. The Optech machine is the one that paper ballots are fed through to read and register the votes.

While these machines are also susceptible to hacking (see Rep. Pridemore explain how to game the machine) in the case of a recount, it is possible to physically monitor the paper ballots as they are fed through the machine to see if they match the machine totals.

With DRE Touch Screens, however, one’s vote could be flipped and one would never know because there is no receipt or paper trail voters receive to confirm their vote was counted as voted. All that is left is a paper tape that shows votes and vote totals. If the machine is hacked, those totals have no other verifiable trail to confirm the results.

And yet according to John Washburn, this swap-out two-for-one offer violates the statutes issued by the GAB for State approved system as described on the Government Accountability Board’s website that requires the inclusion of an Optech Insight Scanner.

On January 13, 2012, Washburn emailed the GAB about this situation. When he did not receive an answer, he submitted an Open Records request to the GAB, with no reply. On May 2, he submitted another, again to no response. On May 4, he turned the case over to Dane County Attorney, and on May 14 he kicked it up to the Department of Justice.

Why is Command Central offering free machines? Why does the GAB not respond? Will the Department of Justice respond in time to help protect our June 5th recall elections?

Are these the “tough questions” (tough decisions Walker's out of state Koch money had a hand in) the clerks were being trained to answer?

5. Thanks... neither was I nor have they been specific on just what it was she did do that was so bad..

 

All I know is that I stumbled upon some of her U-tube videos and thought there was a great need for more people to see them based on the number who had as stated by u-tube as there is a counter on number of views each u-tube video received. That is, the only way more people may decide to stop using these machines and return to voting on paper ballots that are stuffed into ballot boxes for hand counting is to get the message out...


Otherwise the crooks behind these machines will tally crooks into government positions and no honest person will ever get elected that cares about the needs of the middle class or the poor... i.e., big corporate money and corporate voting machine corporations would continue to tally only corporate shills such as Scott Walker as winners of elections and they will act like the few republican jackasses in the house that have been voting against any kind of health care that would help the poor obtain it at a price affordable to the poor while accepting millions of dollars in supper pack money to help keep their own ass in a position of power to screw over the majority of us…

9. Has he a copy of control centrals source code that operates out of a strip mall in Minnesota?

 

By law, voting machines must be publicly tested prior to every election. A Programmable Read Only Memory (P.R.O.M.) pack or cartridge is used to reprogram the machines with the details of the current election. Clerks receive two PROM packs from Command Central: A PRE-LAT, which is used a week or so before the election for the public test, and an “Official” pack used on Election Day. Whoever programs the PROM packs has the ability to inject all the machines with a virus that will flip votes only on Election Day. With two different PROM packs in play, it’s easy to see how public tests could be flawless and the machines could still flip votes Election Day.

What are the odds that a two Prom Pack system could introduce a vote stealing program... I think Black Box Voting has answered that question... Why did the women in charge refuse to take an ethics test request by a previous employer who decided for that reason she was unsubordinated to complying with policy?

http://wcmcoop.com/members/meet-command-central-the-people-in-charge-of-wisconsin-voting-machines/

But perhaps the most disturbing answer Storbeck gave was to the question of who programs the computer pacs that tabulate the votes.

Sue Wahl-Storbeck? Has Mike Huebsch outsourced his duty to her and command central?
And who is Sue Wahl-Storbeck and should we trust her with our voting machines and who has the memory cards that may also contain an executable vote-stealing program and have the machines been checked for checksum error between the checksum on the machine when the first card was employed vs. the checksum when the second was employed? The fact that two cards are employed leads to suspicion since the first could of installed a virus well in advance and the second could of been a virus free card that fraudulent results would be stored...

And, the first cards having been replaced are now in possession of whom?
Has Mike Huebsch checked all the machines for viruses (3000) both before and after the election wherein the cards may or may not of been changed? Were would he and he alone find the time?

In 2007, Sue Wahl-Storbeck filed suit against a former employer and the Minnesota Department of Employment and Economic Development for disqualifying her from receiving unemployment benefits because she had been fired. The company, ACS Enterprise Solutions, claims that in 2005, Wahl-Storbeck refused to take the annual ethics exam that was required for employment with ACS. She claimed the organization was so dysfunctional that it was “hypocritical” to take the test. She lost both her original case and the appeal. “Because each refusal to take the ethics exam was intentional conduct that displayed clearly Storbeck’s refusal to comply with ACS’s reasonable request, her actions do not constitute a single incident under Minn. Stat. § 268.095, subd. 6(a). Accordingly, the ULJ properly determined that Storbeck is disqualified from receiving unemployment benefits because she was discharged for employment misconduct.”
