American Vote Fraud In The 21st Century

Vote fraud played a role in the presidential elections of 2000 & 2004. Jeb Bush who was the governor of Florida in 2000 tried to help his brother get elected with a massive program to kick minority voters off  the list of eligible voters. In many cases people who didn’t deserve to be kicked off. Still once all the votes were counted Al Gore got the most votes. Unfortunately this wasn’t discovered until after the Supreme Court installed Bush.

Then in 2004 the battleground moved to Ohio where the Republican administration engaged in open voter suppression by making sure the safe Republican areas had all the voting machines they needed. While those areas where the Democrats were expected to do well got way fewer voting machines. So those voters had to sand in line for hours sometimes.

And before the election the owner of  Diebold the company that makes the voting machines said he would do anything to make sure Bush got reelected. Did he make something happen? Since, like the 2000 election, there was no investigation we don’t know for sure. We  do know that the final vote total was nowhere near what the exit polls had projected.

In both cases 2000 & 2004 the people in charge of overseeing the elections were also the co-chairs of the Bush election committees. We have also found out that hacking these voting machines is very easy. How easy? Here’s a story from todays news that shows just how easy it is.

Diebold voting machines can be hacked by remote control

Exclusive: A laboratory shows how an e-voting machine used by a third of all voters can be easily manipulated

“It could be one of the most disturbing e-voting machine hacks to date.

Voting machines used by as many as a quarter of American voters heading to the polls in 2012 can be hacked with just $10.50 in parts and an 8th grade science education, according to computer science and security experts at the Vulnerability Assessment Team at Argonne National Laboratory in Illinois. The experts say the newly developed hack could change voting results while leaving absolutely no trace of the manipulation behind.

“We believe these man-in-the-middle attacks are potentially possible on a wide variety of electronic voting machines,” said Roger Johnston, leader of the assessment team “We think we can do similar things on pretty much every electronic voting machine.”

The Argonne Lab, run by the Department of Energy, has the mission of conducting scientific research to meet national needs. The Diebold Accuvote voting system used in the study was loaned to the lab’s scientists by, of which the Brad Blog is a co-founder. Velvet Revolution received the machine from a former Diebold contractor”
