Teresa Heinz on voting machines
This lady is nuts. I ran down a laundry list of then Heinz-Kerry’s comments during the election. She hasn’t stopped since. The most recent contribution is thus:
Teresa Heinz is questioning whether President Bush’s re-election victory last November was legitimate, saying that many of the country’s voting machines could have been "hacked."
"Two brothers own 80 percent of the machines used in the United States," Heinz told a lunch for Seattle Rep. Adam Smith on Saturday, referring to the brothers as "hard right" Republicans.
She argued that it is "very easy to hack into the mother machines," in quotes picked up by the Seattle Post Intelligencer.
Anyone here want to hack into the "mother machines" just to prove her right?
Disclaimer: I served as a counter for a local candidate in the last election. The votes are recorded on computerized machines, the results printed out, and those results called into county clerk’s office for official tabulation. The only time those machines are online is to update the software, which has nothing to do with the election process. I don’t know what percentage of the country those machines represent, but I do know they are very popular. As both a programmer and political "consultant", I know once again Teresa Heinz’s conspiracy theory is nutty.
