Excerpt
Former Chair Says He ‘Was Deceived’, EAC and Federal Efforts for Election Reform ‘A Charade’, ‘Travesty’!
In Stark Contrast to Current EAC Chair, Rev. DeForest Soaries Blasts White House, Congress in Transcript of Unaired Interview from Major Broadcast Network!…
Soaries was appointed by George W. Bush as the first chair of the commission created by the federal Help America Vote Act (HAVA) in the wake of the 2000 Presidential Election Debacle. In the interview, available here for the first time, Soaries excoriates both Congress and the White House, referring to their dedication to reforming American election issues as “a charade” and “a travesty,” and says the system now in place is “ripe for stealing elections and for fraud.”

Having resigned from the commission in April of 2005, Soaries goes on to explain that he believes he was “deceived” by both the White House and Congress, and that neither were ever “really serious about election reform.”
The explosive comments are the latest evidence highlighting serious deficiencies in the federal body, created by HAVA for oversight of elections systems, including new electronic voting devices, and standards for the use and security of those systems.

H.L.s Take:
HAVA is The Help America Vote Act. Which like all of Bush’s initiatives are named for the opposite of what they do. Theres going to be some chaos come election day. Either Republicans will steal the vote, or if not they will lose and accuse Democrats of stealing the vote.
