As Heard on ‘Ring of Fire’ with RFK Jr. & Mike Papantonio: I Support Banning DREs, Neas Opposes Such a Ban, and Speaks in Support of DREs

The Saturday before last I was interviewed on Air America’sRing of Fire  with Robert F. Kennedy Jr. and Mike Papantonio concerning my call for the Election Reform Bill (HR811)  by Rep. Rush Holt (D-NJ) to be amended to include a full ban on Direct Recording Electronic (DRE, usually touch-screen) voting systems.
The interview was pre-taped, and an edited-for-time version was aired. The complete, unedited version of that 15 minute interview, along with a text-transcript isnow posted here .
This past Saturday, Ralph Neas, the president ofPeople for the American Way  (PFAW), one of the groups supporting the Holt Bill as is, and fighting against a ban on DRE voting systems, was interviewed on Ring of Fire. I had been critical of PFAW’s unwaivering support of the bill during my interview the week before (as I have been in many articles here and elsewhere), so Bobby Kennedy asked Neas, a number of times, to answer directly to some of my criticisms.
