Voting Machine Company Demands Removal Of Articles

VOTING MACHINE COMPANY DEMANDS REMOVAL OF INTERNET ARTICLES

ES&S, who makes 56% of the voting machines in the United States, has threatened to sue the owner of Talion.com unless she removes articles about voting machines from her web site.

Bev Harris wrote an article revealing conflict of interest for some owners of voting machine companies, and received a “Demand for Retraction” on October 25, 2002.

ES&S wants Talion.com to remove an article at http://www.talion.com/election-machines.html. The retraction demand has been photocopied, and is now posted at http://www.talion.com/election-systems-software.html. This page contains links to both the latest article on the election companies and the article as it appeared when the letter was sent.

ES&S attorneys admit that the Ahmanson family had owned the voting machine company. The Ahmansons are wealthy political activists, credited with financing the Republican Party’s shift to the hard right. The letter does not address another conflict of interest exposed at the Talion.com site, in an article titled “The Nebraska Problem.” This short article, at http://www.talion.com/Hagel.html, contains five photocopied documents which show ES&S ownership by a current Republican campaign official.

The article also provides the Personal Financial Disclosure document for Republican Senator Chuck Hagel, which lists his investment of up to $5 million in the McCarthy Group, a company that owns ES&S.
