2. CC/NY Steps up - NYVV = AWOL
Edited on Sat Dec-18-10 09:34 AM by Wilms
It's very much appreciated that CC/NY showed up to petition the court for a verified count in such a thin-margined election.
More so in that Bo Lipari's "New Yorkers for Verified Voting" decided to sit on the sidelines, trembling at the notion that even more inaccuracies would be exposed in the optical systems they sold to New York's Voters. (See the discussion on this thread: )

If you look at NYVV's home page today, it reads in part:

    There is still much to do. Here is a sampling of the issues that we need to continue to work on:

      Changing New York State law and regulation to providing understandable, easy to read ballots;
      Ensuring that the poll closing are transparent to the public and scanner results are announced to observers at the polls;
      Protecting voter privacy in the polling locations;
      Using Ballot Markers to their full potential;
      Protecting against the increasing calls for Internet voting an unverifiable and insecure voting method rapidly gaining traction.

    We now need to replenish NYVV's treasury so that we can continue to our activities. /

Not one mention for the need for verified election results! They merely want to "continue" their "activities" muddying the waters and obstructing the efforts of election reformers.

To hell with counting ballots. NYVV is busy counting bucks!

      Bucks Lipari

Better to donate to Common Cause New York
