8. What audit laws are there in PA?
Are they adequate? Or, upon getting OpScans in place state-wide, will you then have to start a campaign for audits and recounts?

That's how Bo Lipari left New Yorkers, particularly Democrats, high and dry. After selling them on OpScans over levers, the very first election using the Lipari/ES&S Computer Tally System resulted in the state's senate being turned over to Republican control, by a court, and without a much needed audit. He was repeatedly warned for years that he was putting New Yorkers at risk of this very eventuality, but kept up his "my way or the highway" attitude alienating many serious advocates. He, apparently, couldn't care less, except for the cover your ass blogging he does after the fact.

Arguing for OpScans without adequate audit and recount law is a half-measure that'll lead to the very problem NY, like FL2000 and OH2004, had in an important election.

Don't Lipari PA voters with lies or half-truths. Tell them the whole ugly story about how you get VERIFIED tallies.
