Our Stolen Democracy

Check it out. Sworn testimony from someone who says he wrote prototype vote-rigging software in October 2000 at the behest of Florida congressman Tom Feeney (although he doesn't know if it or any similar program was ever used). Interestingly, he believes the discrepancy between exit polling and tabulated results suggests use of such software in Ohio last year. This is something I have argued since the election -- Why did everyone immediately blame the exit poll methodology?

And allthough it may take generations to get to the bottom of the fraud in 2000 and 2004 -- I'm personally convinced both were real -- evidence like this highlights the need to protect against electronic fraud in 2008.
We get a receipt at the grocery story so that we can make sure there wasn't an error in tabulating our bill. Why is it so difficult to give us one at the polls to guard against error in tabulating our votes?
