UPDATED: Complete Video Now Linked!
Robert F. Kennedy Jr. was on MSNBC’s Hardball with Chris Mathews earlier this afternoon to discuss his recent Rolling Stone piece on Diebold’s duplicity in their voting systems.
Kennedy spoke about how easy it now is to hack an election with an Electronic Voting Machine (“in just 60 seconds”) as based on recent studies by Princeton, NYU’s Brennan Center and the non-partisan GAO office.
He also discussed the new Congressional Emergency Paper Ballot legislation, and even recommended your friendly neighborhood BRAD BLOG as a good source for information on all of the above!

Do you want to protect the election in November so voters at least have a chance of having their votes counted as cast, not messed up by flawed voting machines? Take action now!
Senators Barbara Boxer (D-CA), Christopher Dodd (R-CT), and Russ Feingold (D-WI) just submitted an emergency Senate bill, S 3943, that will provide Federal reimbursement for states to make paper ballots available to all voters who want them, and Rep. Rush Holt (D-NJ) has submitted a companion bill, HR 6187, in the House. With only a couple more days in this congressional session, these bills have to be heard and passed immediately.
What you can do:
1. Contact your Senators and Representative immediately to ask them to cosponsor these bills and to vote for them (You can contact your particular members via this link.)
2. Contact your local media and ask them to publicize the story (You may write in support of, or ask your local media to cover this issue via this link.)
3. Forward this message to everyone you know, in every state, who cares about our democracy and wants to have a chance that the votes will be counted accurately in November.
