An Ohio Company
iebold has once again raised it's ugly head in the Main $tream Media although the coverage is far from what it should be. They have been noticed because the man who promised to "Help Put Bush in the White House"
had to resign
. Also noted was the fact that a Securities Fraud Class Action suit
has been filed against them. Not much attention was given to the fact that their voting machines are vulnerable to hackers which in turn leads to the proposition that their equipment can lead to innacurate vote counts and flawed elections. The blogosphere is paying attention and hopefully will not rest until the M$M pays attention to the really important issue of stolen elctions. The Brad Blog has been at the forefront of coverage of Diebold and all the issues concerning them, including an exclusive interview :: A Diebold Insider Speaks Out
Florida County to Dump Diebold
The bad news keeps rolling in for Diebold. But that is hopefully good news for democracy and America! And it doesn't get any plainer than this stunning report
from election watchdogs at BlackBoxVoting.org
Even as the beleaguered American Voting Machine company smarts from yesterday's filing of a securities fraud class action suit a test election was carried out on Diebold voting machinery in Leon County, Florida. Diebold's security measures failed miserably and were easily defeated by a hack performed by a computer security professional on a Diebold Touch-Screen Voting Machine and Central Tabulator.
Devastating hack proven
At the beginning of the test election the memory card programmed by Harri Hursti was inserted into an Optical Scan Diebold voting machine. A "zero report" was run indicating zero votes on the memory card. In fact, however, Hursti had pre-loaded the memory card with plus and minus votes.
The eight ballots were run through the optical scan machine. The standard Diebold-supplied "ender card" was run through as is normal procedure ending the election. A results tape was run from the voting machine.
Correct results should have been: Yes:2 No:6
However the results tape read: Yes:7 No:1
The results were then uploaded from the optical scan voting machine into the GEMS central tabulator. The central tabulator is the "mothership" that pulls in all votes from voting machines. The results in the central tabulator read: Yes:7 No:1
