I think you forget, Brad.. Those in charge don't have to adhere to the law.. Just ask Shrubby!
I sure hope this picks up stink, fast! We need to make sure we have a secure chain on these machines, despite the fact that we really shouldn't have them at ALL.. We need to take what we can get, for now.. And that means that at a MINIMUM, the LAW needs to be followed (to at least make it more difficult for cheaters to cheat, despite the laws not being able to prevent the cheating given the current state of the machines).

Seems to me enough people are screaming, "No confidence," that they will HAVE to do a manual count now.

All aboard for the Republidem photo op swearing in Bilbray while all the ballots are uncounted bla bla bla on an election that was run on "stay at pollworkers homes" diebold electronic voting machines. Put that on the cover of the people magazine. US democracy at work.
OT This bush/cheney administration will be responsible for massive specie extinctions because of their bushit US energy policy. We need to concentrate on immediately dealing with educating people of the world on reducing global warming.
loosechange9/11.com to view LOUDER THAN WORDS 2ND ED view for free dedicated to those who died on 9/11 caused by the Bush administration against the American people. Bush war of lies which has increased the "real" terrorist threat because those people in Iraq know the truth and have to live with their massive civilian death toll rising everyday.
There will be massive specie extinctions in 40 years or less because of climate changes from human burning fossil fuels. Check out the book Stormy Weather 101 Solutions to Global Climate Change by Guy Dauncy and Patrick Mazza New Society Publishers. We can still make a difference!!! We need US action not another study .

Who should suffer the expense that it will cost to hand count the ballots and audit the machine tapes of the Busby/Bilbray election.
The expense of the hand count should not be charged to the individual who formerly requests the hand count.
The lack of confidence brought to this election was not caused by this party who requests the hand count.
Why should this individual or group be charged and suffer the hand count cost ? They only seek to right a wrong and remedy negligent conduct that was allowed
by San Diego County Registrar Mr. Mikel Haas. Nor were
the resident of California or San Diego County responsible for this failed election. They should not be further damaged with the expectation that they pay the cost of this hand count.
The individual who was negligent and caused this election to come into serious question by failing
to protect the integrity of the election process,..
was clearly the Registrar Mr. Mikel Haas. Why should he not bare the entire costs of the hand count. He was hired to this job to protect the best interests of the voters and the integrity of the election. He failed miserably in the performance of that job. He,.. and he
alone should pick up the cost of this hand count,.. to right this failed election. Charging Mr. Haas directly for these costs of the hand count is is not a virgin
concept,.. it has been done before. Forfeit one months payroll as a sanction for failure to carry out duties and responsibilities adequately. It was done to an election administrator in Ohio,.. Please see link.
It is not a novel concept - fail in the adequate performance of your job responsibilities,.. then you suffer the consequences for those blatant shortcomings.

Thanks to CEPN & the congressmember for keeping this story alive!
Here's some satire for you:
Diebold announces "unhackable" VERSION 8.0
BTW, my Flash presentation was at #13 at the "Contagious Festival" until The Huffington Post decided to promote 2 other entries, exclusively, on their front page. It's now at #15. Hopefully, they'll do the same for the Flash Slapdown.
Thanks again, guys!

The Commonweal Institute is pleased to endorsed the CEPN "No Confidence" resolution calling for a hand count in San Diego's CD 50 election.
