14. I like her analogy.
This is old technology, and Diebold bought it many years ago. They have been programming the devices for election after election, and there is NO WAY they didn't know about the vulnerability.

Now, you could say 'planned' or 'known', but Diebold's KNOWLEDGE of the matter, coupled with their failure to fix it, is willful negligence at best. Given what else we know of the organization, it is not unreasonable to assume a malicious motive on their part.

In my experience with Diebold, they seem to have a lot of 'sloppy' practices, for a company that started out as a safe manufacturer. The manifold security lapses, errors, and holes could very well be a deliberate strategy by the company to hide crimes amid a forest of 'errors'.
