As Georgia elections officials prepared to roll out an over $100 million high-tech voting system last year, good-government groups, a federal judge and election-security experts warned of its perils. The new system, they argued, was too convoluted, too expensive, too big ó and was still insecure.

They said the state would regret purchasing the machines. On Tuesday, that admonition appeared prescient.

1. Are the new machines from Ivanka's patent?

If so, she's already made bank from the sale.
Whether or not they function is irrelevant to her profit.
