Diebold, State Election Director Lamone Continue State of Denial

The Washington Post is reporting in Friday editions that the FBI is investigating the "possible theft" of Diebold electronic touch-screen voting system source code in Maryland.
While the Maryland State Board of Elections admits that the disks contained "the software…used in Maryland in the 2004 elections," Diebold denies everything. Of course. They gave their catch-all apologia — the software is for "versions…that are no longer in use in Maryland" — although they were forced to acknowledge "the version of one program apparently stored on the disks is still in use in 'a limited number of jurisdictions.'"
The disks feature logos from Ciber Inc. and Wyle Labratories Inc., two labs that test voting machines and software (sort of) for Diebold. Both firms deny the disks are theirs.
According to the article…
The disks delivered to [ex-Delegate Cheryl C. Kagan's ] office bear labels indicating that they hold "source code" — the instructions that constitute the core of a software program — for Diebold's Ballot Station and Global Election Management System (GEMS) programs. The former guides the operation of the company's touch-screen voting machines; the latter is in part a tabulation program used to tally votes after an election.
Three years ago, Diebold was embarrassed when an activist obtained some of its confidential software by searching the Internet. The company vowed to improve its security procedures to prevent another lapse.
The release of such software poses a risk, computer scientists say, because it could allow someone to discover security vulnerabilities or to write a virus that could be used to manipulate election results."

George has assured his father "not to worry, it is not going to happen (the Democrats winning) - it just is not going to happen."

Now how would you know that George?

The only grim fact in opening our eyes now, is the utter and complete awareness that this fraud has been going on for some time.

It makes one wonder whether we know how to recognize evil at all.

Evil is as evil does.
Sixty years of corporate treason in America brings us to this sordid time in history. Elections are a corrupt joke, with the current sitting, lame duck klutz, another corporate clod placed to rubber stamp the rape of his own country.

And he is proud of it too...
