PEMT: My point is that Californians haven't examined it! That's who ought to be doing this if a system of post-election audits/recounts is ever going to work. All I know is, Brown conceded after a 10% hand count. But I would think that at least ONE of the many California activists we know and love would have taken enough interest in this to find out what happened. If they didn't, what hope does NY or any other state have, esp. when they are fed the BS line that we can trust scanner software because it's not DRE software? (I won't waste your time explaining the context of this one, but take my word for it that it's been put forth by scanner advocates on many occasions, even as scanner elections have melted down for various reasons.)

Novick: Yes I think she has changed her mind because she knows that HCPB on a large scale, on election night, is not going to happen, and because she has read the history and case law about paper ballot fraud, which the levers were designed to prevent.

What you have shown is that she has NOT changed her mind about the interpretation of HAVA, unless at some point she said levers do NOT comply (other than for accessibility reasons). All of this shows a willingness to think critically -- not the opposite which I think you may have implied with respect to her acceptance of the exit poll arguments to which she was initially exposed.
