46. Some more info from BradBlog:
Along with their first-time posting of this interview, notes the "interesting postscript to this interview," which includes a bit of good news, at least.

Despite the Lamone's "rabid opposition," last year the state of Maryland passed new legislation that will do away with their touch-screen systems, and require paper ballots for all voters beginning in 2010. Supporters of the new legislation, including both Democrats and Republicans in the state house and MD's former Republican Governor, Robert Ehrlich --- who had himself called for paper ballots during his re-election attempt in 2006 after a particularly ugly machine meltdown during the primaries --- came out in opposition to Lamone, a Democrat.

Her credibility was largely shot, by the time the legistlation came up, for a number of reasons, including her cover-up of a stunning analysis made of her machines in 2003 by SAIC which was never released in full, in its unredacted form, until The BRAD BLOG acquired and released it the day before the 2006 election.
