IN MY OPINION

Election official hammered for telling the truth

BY FRED GRIMM
fgrimm@MiamiHerald.com

Ion Sancho may be a hero in California, where grateful election officials have verified the ''serious security vulnerabilities'' in Diebold voting machines that the Leon County election supervisor uncovered last year.

Sancho is regarded a little differently in Florida.

Florida's secretary of state's office disparaged Sancho's finding, demonstrating considerably more interest in propping up vendors than protecting elections.

California, alarmed by Sancho's report, dispatched its independent, expert-laden Voting Systems Technology Assessment Advisory Board to conduct its own investigation.

Florida, meanwhile, threatened to sue Sancho.

1. See the difference between a real state and a nazi run state.
I hate Florida almost as much as I hate Bush.

9. I'll post this. We cannot let our brave be
bludgeoned. Do we have a free press or just a press free to be trampled?
