‘All is Well’ Says CA Sec. of State About ES&S Voting Machines (Without Telling Us What Was Wrong in the First Place)
Some Quick Damage Control After Secret Letter Uncovered Threats of Decertification by of Voting Machine Company by SoS in the Golden State

Everything’s fine. Nothing to worry about. These aren’t the droids you’re looking for. That was the message out of Sacramento yesterday in regards to the newly exposed concerns about ES&S voting machines in California as recently revealed by a secret letter from California’s Secretary of State. That letter was written and sent five weeks ago privately, but only reported publicly for the first time last week after it was uncovered by an AP reporter.

Of course, CA SoS Bruce McPherson’s office has yet to actually inform the voters (you remember them, don’t you, Mr. McPherson?) of the “problems experienced by counties utilitizing ES&S voting equipment and software” as discovered during the recent November Special Election which “deeply concerned” the SoS enough to threaten ES&S with decertification in the entire state, according to the letter.

No Comments to “Cover-up in California”

  • Sorry to be slightly off topic [ha, as usual] however, wanted to tipp off any stragglers here that Charels Lewis will be on C Span’s Q&A this weekend.

    From their site:
    “Charles Lewis was interviewed about freedom of the press issues and the influence of money on Congress and the presidency. Charles Lewis is the president of the Fund for Independence in Journalism in Washington, and co-author of five books, including The Buying of the President 2004 (HarperCollins). He founded and for 15 years was the executive director of the Center for Public Integrity, a nonprofit, nonpartisan investigative reporting organization. From l977 to l988 he did investigative reporting at ABC News and CBS News “60 Minutes.” In 1998, he was awarded a MacArthur Fellowship and in 2004 received the PEN USA First Amendment award.”

    I became familiar with him through the doc “Orwell Rolls In His Grave.” Essential.
