In the course of her research, which unearthed hundreds of reported incidents of mishandled voting information, Harris stumbled across an "online library" of the Diebold Corporation, discovering a treasure trove of information about the inner-workings of the company's voting system. Harris brought this proprietary "secret" information to computer security expert Dr. Avi Rubin of Johns Hopkins University [Scoop Editor's Note: VIA A SOFTWARE RELEASE ANNOUNCED ON SCOOP.CO.NZ - Sludge Report #154 – Bigger Than Watergate!], who determined that the software lacked the necessary security features to prevent tampering.

In 1982, the Democrats picked up 27 House seats as the country said no to the doctrinaire Reagan project. The Senate remained Republican that year. 1994 was a blow out of epic proportions. The Democrats lost 54 seats in the House and eight in the Senate. That election was the “gift that keeps giving.” See...

"Last March," begins the article, "the federal government set up a Web site to make public a vast archive of Iraqi documents captured during the war. The Bush administration did so under pressure from Congressional Republicans who had said they hoped to 'leverage the Internet' to find new evidence of the prewar dangers posed by Saddam Hussein."

One of those interviews resulted in a backlash against the White House when Cheney told a reporter that, for him, water-boarding, a controversial technique used against terror suspects that simulates drowning, was a "no brainer."

    The proposed ‘New Zealand Income Insurance Scheme’ (‘the scheme’) has attracted strong debate among the more left-wing and liberal groupings, within New Zealand-Aotearoa.
