"Shocking" Election Practices Revealed in Georgia

"Shocking" Election Practices Revealed in Georgia


http://www.countthevote.org

Rep. Cynthia Mc Kinney concluded a press conference this morning on the Diebold Company's performance in the Georgia elections. For E-voting activists, Georgia is the ground zero of the entire Vote Hacking bomb.

What so many fail to grasp in this issue is that it is more about top-down control than a partisan issue. In Georgia, for example, many Democratic Party officials, particularly the Secretary of State, have doggedly pursued the Diebold systems despite evidence of the ease of changing results and other programming anomalies.

What McKinnney's office has just released is a group of documents that lend the visible evidence necessary to take this issue out of the hands of conspiracy theorists, and put it in the public purview of government officials. The first flickers of a problem appeared in the public mind with the election of Gov. Sonny Perdue with an unaccounted for 11 point swing overnight in the voting publics voting preference. Perdue was the first Republican Governor elected in Georgia since the reconstruction.

Georgia's elections have been fraught with massive problems from day one and election officials have hidden the problems from the voters.

Georgia's election officials sought to protect Diebold instead of the voters.

The first document is a list of bugs and failures experienced in Georgia's 2002 election, none of which have been resolved to date, much less in time for the 2004 election.



Mr. Sam Barber of American Computer Technologies, Inc. has filed a federal lawsuit against Diebold. ACT was originally a Minority Owned Business contacted by Diebold to subcontract the Acceptance Testing of the Diebold system. When they discovered Mr. Barber really intended to test the equipment as prescribed by computer science, they threw him off the contract.

What they WANTED Mr. Barber's company to do was assemble the 2 pieces of equipment and CALL it acceptance testing. When he refused, he was dismissed by Diebold in McKinney, TX.
