Edited on Sun Jun-20-10 12:29 PM by Bill Bored
From the full article:

Douglas Kellner, co-chair of the state Board of Elections, said Nassau's bid will be futile: "Our position is, that ship has sailed . . . and the time for challenging lever machines has long passed." The only way to stop the demise of lever machines, he added, "would be an act of Congress and it's pretty clear that's not going to happen."

What he fails to mention is that there's ALREADY an act of congress that allows the use of lever machines: The Help America Vote Act! :patriot:
