Lou Dobbs, is on the e-voting case again.
Tonight Lou discussed the fact that Diebold voting machines and parts can be purchased on-line and at least one of those purchases has revealed a vulnerability in the Diebold TS-R6. The only response Diebold had was that there are only a few thousand of those machines being used as they are being replaced. Diebold obfuscates the truth; there are over 40,000 in use in Georgia and Maryland alone.
Hat-tip to our friends at the Open Voting Foundation who not only purchased the machine at E-bay, but went on to use it to discover one of the “worst ever flaws found in a voting machine” (at least until the next one is found, anyway.)
The text-transcript of tonight’s segment on Lou Dobbs Tonight follows in full.
Gotta love Ebay, they really do have everything.
