Diebold Voting Machines Revisited
May 13, 2006 12:38 AM

When on Earth will the American public take notice that electronic voting machines are vulnerable to hacking (i.e. stolen elections)?

Finally, the research over at has reached the mainstream media. The New York Times has finally covered the continuing security flaws of Diebold machines with this recent article. In it is this incredible statement by a Diebold executive:

"For there to be a problem here, you're basically assuming a premise where you have some evil and nefarious election officials who would sneak in and introduce a piece of software," he said. "I don't believe these evil elections people exist."

WHAT?? How can this company still be in business? Their entire focus should be on assuming that there are nefarious characters out there trying to steal elections. Unless, of course, the company itself is actually in the business of throwing elections to candidates they support.

Or as Lizardbreath comments:

That line officially makes him, and anyone at Diebold who doesn't instantly fire him for saying it, either deliberately crooked or too stupid to live. Of course people want to steal elections, just like people want to rob banks. People rob banks because that's where the money is; people fix elections because that's where the power is.
