Violations of State, Federal Laws Alleged, State Senator Releases Comment Condemning McPherson, Outlining Violations
As The BRAD BLOG broke yesterday, a lawsuit has today been filed in San Francisco Superior Court demanding that California Sec. of State Bruce McPherson follow state and federal law in regards to his recent re-certification of Diebold voting machines in the state.
McPherson is named, along with 18 California county registrars, as defendants in the suit which calls for a ban on the use and new purchase of Diebold voting systems. The suit was filed by VoterAction.org on behalf of 25 California voter/plaintiffs.
