Clint Curtis, ex programmer for Diebold, testifies in Congress - no one cares

Computer Programmer Clint Curtis testifies that Tom Feeney (Speaker of the Houe of Florida at the time, currently US Representative) tried to pay him to rig election vote counts.

Video of testimony before congress here

"If you have exit polling data that is significantly off from the vote, then it's probably hacked".

Testimony was given under oath.

But but but in New Hampshire and other states, we are now using ACCUVOTE machines, which are optical scanners, and are not made by Diebold right?


"The exact same make, model and version hacked in the Black Box Voting project in Leon County is used throughout New Hampshire, where about 45 percent of elections administrators hand count paper ballots at the polling place, with the remaining locations all using the Diebold version 1.94w optical scan machine. Because the voting machine locations tend to be urban, this represents about 81 percent of the New Hampshire voters."

Online Journal

"One area of disagreement between Hursti and Silvestro was the amount of expertise needed to exploit the Diebold 1.94w optical scan system. Silvestro claimed (in a strange contortion of reasoning) that he doesn't hire very skilled programmers, implying that this makes New Hampshire elections more secure."


I recommend we start visiting this web site regularly:

Bonus last minute addition:
ABC News wonders why the exit polls are CONSISTENTLY wrong, alas, it is only in their blog.

But at least ABC News blog, Gary Langer states: "It is simply unprecedented for so many polls to have been so wrong. We need to know why."

I have a one word answer for you. It starts with "f" and ends with "d".
