170. Re: how HAVA was written, by Whom, & How it was implemented & by Whom.
patrice, I've looked up & down here & can't find your post # 120.

After that, I went to Brad Blog & read everything I could on HAVA; and found nothing as to WHO in Congress actually wrote or Who in Congress actually implemented it.

However, I did find some disturbing information about the U.S. Election Assistance Commission, including EAC activities after Obama came to office & when Dems controlled the House of Representatives.

Brad Bolg ...Guest Blog by John Gideon of Voters
"Eac-Ya: The Nation's Federal System's Voting Oversight Commission Refuses To Do It's Job, Answer a Simple Question."

From the article, Gideon writes:
It's clear that if there is to be any federal body to recommend investigation and/or prosecution to the DoJ, in regards criminal violation of federal law concerning voting systems, it is to be the EAC, the body charged with testing, certifying, and performing as the "national clearinghouse..with respect to the administration of federal elections." (42 U S C ^ 15322) and the electronic voting systems employed across the country.
And yet the EAC has continued to utterly fail in those duties, as a particularly maddening chain of inquiries and e-mails---back and forth and round and round--that we'd sent to the EAC commissioners and their spokesperson over the past three months
illustrates all too well."

Gideon was getting bullshit answers & promises of e-mail replies that never came.

Since this was taking place both before and after Obama took office in 2009, it appears that election irregularities regarding electronic voting machines wasn't something that President Obama thought important enough to do anyhting about.

I still would like to see what you have in post # 120; and if you want to message it to me, I would appreciate it.
