Who runs the voting machines?
    #3191276 - 09/28/04 01:46 PM (13 years, 8 months ago)

Pretty close ties with Clear Channel; and CIA owned voting machines..might any of this get anybody questioning the integrity of the 2004 election..?

CIA-owned Voting Machines Ensure Bush Victory in 2004
The American vote-count is controlled by three major corporate players -- Diebold, ES&S, and Sequoia -- with a fourth, Science Applications International Corporation, coming on strong. These companies -- all of them hardwired into the Bushist Party power grid -- have been given billions of dollars by the Bush Regime to complete a sweeping computerization of voting machines nationwide by the 2004 election. These glitch-riddled systems -- many using "touch-screen" technology that leaves no paper trail at all -- are almost laughably open to manipulation, according to corporate whistleblowers and computer scientists at Stanford, Johns Hopkins and other universities.

Republican Linked to Chinagate, Media Empire, and Voting Machines Running for Congress
It gets worse. It turns out that Michael McCaul is married to the media...quite literally. His father-in-law, Lowry Mays, is Chairman of the radio and television media giant Clear Channel Communications, and other Mays relatives hold key positions within the company. A quick look at the website of the Federal Election Commission reveals that Clear Channel and other media fatcats are financing McCaul's campaign. What's wrong with this picture? The founding fathers revered the press because of their critical role of being the watchdog of the government. Freedom of the press is enshrined in the First Amendment of the United States Constitution to protect that essential safeguard. How far have we fallen when Clear Channel, in control of news and editorial content of 1,225 radio stations and 39 television stations, can now attempt to buy their own congressman? http://www.herndon1.sdrdc.com/cgi-bin/can_ind/H4TX10093

One other set of facts is worth mentioning. Electronic voting machines are susceptible to external manipulation and have no paper trail to validate votes and prevent fraud. http://www.blackboxvoting.org The Secretary of State of Ohio has confirmed this problem via an independent technical security assessment report written by Compuware Corporation. http://www.sos.state.oh.us/sos/news/release/12-02-03.htm . One such machine is manufactured by Hart Intercivic . These machines are used in only four counties in Texas...four out of two hundred and fifty four. The 10th Congressional District stretches from Travis County to Harris County. Would you believe that Hart Intercivic machines are used in Travis and Harris counties? That's right, 80% of the voters in the district Michael McCaul is running in will be voting on Hart Intercivic machines. So what is wrong with that? Perhaps nothing. However, it should be noted that Tom Hicks, vise-chairman of Clear Channel Communications, is a major investor in Hart Intercivic by way of Hicks, Muse, Tate, and Furst , an investment company that controls Stratford Capital Partners. Hart Intercivic lists Stratford Capital Partners as a major investor. Call me old-fashioned, but it seems to me that people involved in financing political candidates should not also make the voting machines used to chose their candidate. The potential exists for a conflict of interest due to the temptations of motive and opportunity.
