40. DRE and Optiscans are equally evil? Not true
Yes, Optiscans can be hacked at least five different ways, but if they are precinct scanners they make GREAT paper ballots that can and SHOULD be hand counted at the precinct, and then their totals may then be crossed checked with whatever the Optiscan tabulation software claims.

Therefore on the hierarchy of evil they are infinitely better than DREs IF used as described above.
