3. Who is this Roper woman anyway?
Edited on Sun Mar-21-10 09:50 PM by Bill Bored
She seems like a real vendor shill.

What does "that little hanging chad situation" have to do with HCPB?

She is using rhetoric similar to what we have heard in NY about a non-existent federal requirement to do away with lever voting machines. That's bullshit here and it's bullshit in NH with respect to HCPB. But notice how she used the word if a lot -- not that HAVA does require computers. That would have been disingenuous and someone could have called her on it. She's a slick one. Not unlike our friends in NY trying to shove computers down our throats.

HAVA protects HCPB even MORE explicitly than it does lever voting machines.

Tobi's comments were a bit general but she made the states' rights case, and in essence, she was correct. I'm glad she was a bit "anemic" compared to some of her usual rants about "traitors", etc. Since Roper didn't actually claim HCPB was banned, Tobi's response had to be a measured one.
