From the desk of grimmlok:
If you do nothing else today watch this video of sworn testimony by a computer programmer on his design of software to rig the 2000 Florida election. The programmer, Clint Curtis, was a staunch Republican at the time but has since switched and is now running against the man he accuses on the video: Rep. Tom Feeney of Florida.Indeed.
It's not every day that an American citizen testifies, on videotape, about being asked to generate software that rigs elections.
This video is on Youtube, which was recently bought up by Google. Now it's gaining attention from the likes of prorev.com.
Quote:JUDGE: Mr. Curtis, are there programs that can be used to secretly fix elections?Not particularely shocking when you consider who was running Florida.... Jeb Bush.
JUDGE: How do you know that to be the case?
CURTIS: Because in October of 2000 I wrote a prototype for [Congressman] Tom Feeney at the company I worked for... that did just that.
JUDGE: And when you say, 'did just that'...it would rig an election?
CURTIS: It would flip the vote 51-49 for whoever you wanted it to go to and whichever race you wanted to win.
JUDGE: And would that program that you designed be something that elections officials (that might be on County Boards of Elections) could detect?
CURTIS: They'd never see it.
Democracy? What democracy?
