How to get to the bottom of this -- In my opinion there is only one way to solve this issue.
Democratic officials in a blue state need to sue Diebold for providing faulty machines. Then they need to depose every possible person involved in the development of the code. Once you find the smallest evidence of wrongdoing, you bring criminal charges until someone starts talking.
There is ZERO doubt in my mind that these machines were designed to be hacked. The sloppy code merely exists for plausible deniability. And it is working. See how many Democrats demand PROOF before they get off their asses to do anything. Despite the fact that the machines were clearly designed to erase the evidence of wrongdoing.
My God, there is a REASON that ATM machines and slot machines don't make "mistakes" like this.
Myth: Blue states are solid citizens when it comes to clean elections. The Diebold optical scan system is extremely popular in urban areas and blue states. Consider the possibility that there might be a reason for that before counting on the Democrats to help solve this.
