The US presidential election could have been computer hacked, the wife of Democrat candidate John Kerry has claimed.
Teresa Heinz Kerry is openly sceptical about George Bush's victory some four months after the election, questioning the legitimacy of the optical scanners used in some states to record votes.
"Two brothers own 80 per cent of the machines used in the United States," she said during a fund raising event in Seattle.
They are "hard-right" Republicans, she claimed, arguing that it was "very easy to hack into the mother machines".
