*In response to concerns that have been raised recently about
VoteTrustUSA, we would like to issue the following statement:*
Donna Curling has never attempted to influence the policy,
statements, or actions of VoteTrustUSA, nor do any donor’s
contributions, including Mrs. Curling’s have any such influence.
ChoicePoint Services has never provided financial assistance to
VoteTrustUSA nor have they attempted to have any dialogue or in any
way influence VoteTrustUSA policy, statements, or actions.
VoteTrustUSA does not defend, endorse, or support ChoicePoint
Services. VoteTrustUSA is highly concerned about the invasion of
individual privacy that the data aggregation and datamining industry
enables, and believe that fair, accurate, and transparent elections
will result in legislation, regulation, and oversight to curb the
type of abusive practices that have been revealed by Greg Palast and
others in the media.
VoteTrustUSA has never questioned Greg Palast’s veracity.
John Gideon was not acting as a spokesperson for VoteTrustUSA when he
posted remarks critical of Greg Palast on the Black Box Voting Forum
message board. Mr. Gideon has apologized to Mr. Palast and publicly
retracted his post.
The mission of VoteTrustUSA is to ensure that future elections are
open, fair, accessible, publicly transparent, and accurately reflect
the intentions of the voters. VoteTrustUSA condemns in the strongest
possible terms any practices that seek to deny any eligible voter
their right to vote.
