75. Hon, I'm afraid you need to look into some history. Seriously.
Dig into the Election Reform forum archives for a bit. If there was any doubt before 2004 that the situation was dire, that clinched it. Greg Palast and some others did first-rate investigative work, and statisticians did first-rate analyses showing the utter impossibility of some of the election results, and computer experts demonstrated time and again how easily the machines could be hacked, and Kennedy Jr. published a couple of brilliant articles in Rolling Stone, and grass-roots people like me and some other DU'er's gave money and wrote letters and hollered, and John Conyers held hearings and wrote a book about it, and the rest of Congress did nothing.

And then DU created a separate forum for the issue, so now most DU-er's don't have to hear about it.

But in any event, there is absolutely no way that Congressional Dems could have remained ignorant of the dangers of electronic voting.
