Black Box Voting

BLACK BOX VOTING….You know, I haven’t gotten hugely excited about the Diebold voting machine story. You know, the one about how it’s easy to hack into their code and maybe tamper with it to rig an election. Sure, it seems like a problem, but I didn’t want to get too tinfoil hattish about the whole thing.

Well, break out the Reynolds Wrap! Apparently it’s serious enough that Diebold has managed to shut down blackboxvoting.org, Bev Harris’ site devoted to exposing Diebold’s problems, by bullying her ISP. Note to Diebold: nobody really took the problems with the Corvair all that seriously until GM hired a couple of goons to hassle Ralph Nader. It’s the coverups that get you.

Oh, and blockboxvoting.com is still up. It’s really hard to shut down the whole web, guys….
