HEAD-IN-THE-SAND VOTING….Here’s the response from Diebold’s spokesman about the latest security vulnerability in their voting machines:
“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.”
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.
The technical details don’t even matter here. A company that doesn’t believe anyone would ever try to steal an election shouldn’t be in the voting machine business. Jeebus.
