Read the Bob Barr piece. While on 1 hand he states with a certainty that voters simply got tired of McKinney's outrages to support her 17 point loss, he gives her a back handed compliment for expressing a need for a verifiable paper trail to evidence the electronic machine outcome. He goes on to admit some examples of lost and unreadable ballots in Ohio and even goes as far as using the word HACKABLE to describe these electronic voting machines.
He DOES NOT give the reader much information about the massive number of problems associated with these machines. Does not expound on test results which consistantly come up with different figures than hand counts and the fact that one person can rig an election undetected. He also fails to talk about the convicted felons who own the propriatory software and count our vote in secrecy.
Yet Bob stands tall that he's faithful to the McKinney results because no problems have come up in with electronic voting results in Georgia. Or do they exist??? In the McKinney election, we would like to you prove your assumption wrong Bob or correct but as you know this IS NOT A POSSIBILITY.
The fact is you cannot evidence the actual results of her runoff election because electronic voting machine in GEORGIA DO NOT PRODUCE A PAPER TRAIL. Truth is Bob, you cannot prove that someone rigged the outcome and Representive McKinney lost or won by 17 points?
Isn't that right councelor?
Isn't that right?
McKinney election case NOT dismissed.
It appears U.S. Democracy loses another battle to the Fascist highjacking of our vote.

Cynthia McKinny spoke out like Paul Wellstone did. I wish her luck and success with her lawsuit. Winter Patriot's website was a real eye opener to the racism in the DC police dept. To all the critics of her efforts for US instead of corporations..I say how genorous AIPAC is with their money. AMERICABLOG called her a nutjob for supporting Palestinians...they later banned me when I asked,"Do you take money from AIPAC?" Kos banned me for asking "Do you take Diebold money?" Maybe they are thin skinned, maybe I'm rude. Time will tell.

IMO it wouldn't matter if there was a paper trail. Because it will NEVER EVER be compared to the unvalidatable digital signal.

In Michael Moore's video collection called "The Awful Truth" he confronts Bob Barr during the Clinton Impeachment and they start talking about morality.
Moore brings up the fact that Bob was caught licking whipped cream off a woman's bare breast at a party. Mr. Barr says something like, yeah, and people are always bringing it up.
Bob seems to be on our side a lot since he lost office, but I'd rather have somebody else defend our precious rights. Thanks anyway though!
