2. Is there a WikiLeak about a fraudulant US election?
I was quite sure that Ohio had some vote switching issues in 2004 that had to be known about by high level officials. And I don't necessarily mean "man in the middle" attacks on web servers.

Anyone who's anyone knows that to rig an election without detection, you have to do it at the source -- the precincts where the votes are cast and counted on election day. That's the primary motivation for doing away with systems where this isn't possible, such as HCPB and lever voting machines.

Every other voting system is capable of within-precinct vote switching between candidates. Proving this isn't happening to any great extent is far too complex, onerous and expensive. So it won't be done.
