3. This could be the most important voting lawsuit of our time.
Edited on Thu Sep-02-10 01:11 AM by Bill Bored
For years we've seen HAVA deliberately misread and turned on its head, along with the passage of fake state auditing laws and regulations with little more than a snowball's chance in hell of detecting or correcting a rigged election.

Now someone is finally standing up to the liars on both sides of the aisle who continue to give us a choice of: paper ballots without audits; or audits without paper ballots.

And this revolt is also bipartisan, which makes it that much sweeter!

This could have been a hand-counted-paper-ballot lawsuit if that were the existing non-computerized voting system under threat from the federal and New York State governments. But it happens to be about lever machines, which are almost as good as HCPBs in some respects and considerably better in others (levers don't permit overvoting, which cost Al Gore the Presidency in 2000).

Hats off to Nassau County and their bipartisan consensus on election integrity, willingness to tell the truth, and willingness to put their money where their mouths are in state and federal courts!
