Puh-RAZE Th' LAWD, they has SEEN th' LAHT!

The Post has finally noticed something... amiss with the rightwing slot machines that selected a Preznint for the citizens of America.

This only after hundreds of thousands of us have been shouting ourselves hoarse over it for the last few years.

But hey, better too late than never.

Quotes of the Day:

I need some answers! Our department is being audited by the County. I have been waiting for someone to give me an explanation as to why Precinct 216 gave Al Gore a minus 16022 [votes] when it was uploaded. Will someone please explain this so that I have the information to give the auditor instead of standing here "looking dumb."

~Global Election Systems (now Diebold) employee Lana Hires' email asking her supervisor how to explain 16 thousand "disappeared" Gore votes to an auditor of the 2000 election.

For a demonstration I suggest you fake it. Program them both so they look the same, and then just do the upload fro [sic] the AV. That is what we did in the last AT/AV demo.
~email from an unnamed Diebold supervisor, 2000 election

Right now you can open GEMS' .mdb file with MS-Access, and alter its contents. That includes the audit log. This isn't anything new.
~email from an unnamed Diebold supervisor, 2000 election

Elections are not rocket science. Why is it so hard to get things right! I have never been at any other company that has been so miss [sic] managed.
