Rigged USA Elections Exposed

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.

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.

JUDGE: Mr. Curtis, are there programs that can be used to secretly fix elections?


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.
Not particularely shocking when you consider who was running Florida.... Jeb Bush.

Democracy? What democracy?

I'm very curious about this, especially with midterms so close and '08 not as far as you think.

You ganked my entire entry, and by proxy my resultant visitor comments!

Oh hell, that happens ALL THE TIME to me.

I just get used to it.

Well, that's your own fault for being astute, observant, and brilliantly well written. I give 'hat tips' where I gank from others, if ever I don't then let me know!

Why thank you for the compliment, sweet man. I would've settled for "witty and erudite" - there's that Libran modesty rising to the surface again.

Allow me to explain a bit more. Only at the very beginning, before I had thought it through, was the 'gakking' only mildly irksome. Then I realized that it was like viral marketing and spreading the post to a much larger audience than I could reach on my own. So by no means take my original remark as approbation, But it would be nice if folks left a link to the new post, so I could click over and read the other post's comments.

He just confirmed what I believed all the fucking long!!!!!!!!!!!

There was never any way that bush could win the presidential election w/o fixing the election process so that he could win.

So the election was stolen, a usurper sits on the throne since, and this has been out for some time.

Because if he isn't, then the 'terrists' will win.

*prepares a fire & a roasting spit for Katherine Harris' arrogance*

She looks quite gamey, though - might need a crock pot for that beast.

Absolutely disgusting!

How is this ape still in office?
Ugh! Republican corruption has just made me retarded!

No words?

Allow me to help, "Republican bid'ness as uz'ul."
14th-Oct-2006 01:32 pm (UTC)
Pretty much, yes.

something isn't sinking right though - if he's testifying underoath - why is here there? what prompted this? How come other news outlets aren't carrying this?

I don't mean to be skeptical - i just don't know where the repercussions are

Excellent point, I'm asking that myself. I want confirmation on this too, if you run across any then let me know.
