7. Nah. Kellner is just thinking like a lawyer.

He claims that an act of Congress is necessary to keep lever voting machines. But he knows that's already happened. HAVA was passed in 2002.

He claims that it's not likely to happen now. Of course not, because it's ALREADY happened!

Indeed, the ship has sailed. Congress had a chance to ban lever voting machines in federal elections when they wrote HAVA and they didn't do it.

He says "the time for challenging lever machines has long passed." Right again. Those who would challenge lever voting machines are living in the past -- when they were led to believe that:
- ballot scanners were NOT computers,
- ballot scanners would be properly audited (using the paper ballots),
- ballot scanners were standalone devices programmed by little old blue-haired Democratic and Republican ladies at the poll sites,
- etc., etc.

Those days are long gone in New York, although the smell of this BS still lingers.

That's why the New York State courts will have to decide what happens next.
