There are — far too quietly — some of the most important decisions of our generation now being made in states and counties around the country. Again, over the past few days, we have been focusing on them at The BRAD BLOG. Whether you are paying attention to them and our reporting of same, it has become quiet clear that America’s Voting Machine Companies certainly are, and they are making themselves no strangers at BRAD BLOG, in comments and via email.
Here are links to some of our most notable reports from the last day or two, leading off with one stunning revelation concerning the 2000 Election…believe it or not…and how we got to this mess in the place…. — Brad

DAN RATHER REPORTS VIDEO: ‘The Trouble with Touch Screens’ Will be HUGE Trouble for Sequoia, ES&S and Maybe the Republicans from the 2000 Election!

Complete, Disturbing Investigative Exposé, Featuring Troubling New Revelations About America’s E-Voting Companies, Now Available in Full Online…

NOTE: The original Google video of this report has been taken down for some reason, so we are making it available in full, in three easy to watch segments.

Holy Cow! If you haven’t seen this report’s enormous news concerning Sequoia’s apparent effort to create havoc with Florida’s punch-cards in 2000, you must do so immediately.
Seven company whistleblowers, all interviewed on camera, and by name, reveal their repeated objections to the company’s use of faulty paper and purposeful misalignment of chads specifically for Democratic Palm Beach County, FL only — in the 2000 Presidential Election.
“Someone” at the company okayed the faulty ballots despite the objections of the employees, including the Quality Control manager at the factor who is also interviewed. Sequoia has yet to admit who that “someone” was.
The revelations here are remarkable and breathtaking, should earn “Dan Rather Reports” an award for investigative journalism, and have already led to a call for a full Congression Investigation

Truth to Power in St. Louis, Missouri…
Blogged by Brad Friedman from St. Louis…
Last Thursday’s event where I spoke out here in Kirkwood, as sponsored by Missourians for Honest Elections, was terrific. A packed house, and a bunch of fired up folks — hopefully ready to go out and fight for their democracy — by the time we were done, I do believe.
St. Louisans Thor Hearne (of the GOP vote suppression front group “ACVR”), Paul DiGregrorio (former St. Louis County Election Director, turned EAC Chair, turned Voting Company chief), and John Diehl (current St. Louis County Election Director) declined to show, despite the invitation sent to them to speak at the event along with me.
To their credit, however, the City of St. Louis’ Board of Election did come by all on their own.
The biggest honor of the week for me here in St. Louis, however, was an invitation I received by phone on Tuesday afternoon to come in and meet with the Editorial Board of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, the once-great paper founded by Joseph Pulitzer in 1878…
