"Why is the EAC obfuscating? What are they not telling us and why?..."
Because "they" are afraid if they make that 'connection' public, "they" might end up in a pair of 'cement overshoes'
(I don't think its necessary to rehash my theory again, pretty much everyone knows what that is)

The truth is what they are hiding because that is the what they do best!

Just another example of the secrecy of the current adm. It would make it more difficult to steal an election or delete votes. Let's not make it easy for them to steal an election!!

They are waiting for the oil barons to make it big on Iraq oil so they can then purchase the electronic voting machine companies.
Then they will fix everything, "if you know what I mean".

I have not heard a lot from the Dems in Congress about probes into the election machine business and technology, nor a lot on internet neutrality--real neutrality instead of the fake stuff professed by Google,ATT and others. I have a feeling Henry Waxman would be involved in at least some these areas, but don't really know. He has carried the ball a long time and probably wants to narrow his focus a little. John Conyers had an interest and I read a piece this morning which was more of a biographical profile---anyway, I would assume he has interest in voter fraud, suppression and machinery.
But I have not seen anything announced or a timetable for investigation.
So if Congress intends to seat representativew who came from logically if not formally contested districts, it should at least be curious about why there is a serious controversy and a breach of contract by the ill-reputed test agencies.
Many other blogs counsel "patience--the Dems just got there---give'm time". At the rate government machinery grinds, I predict an investigation into voting machines might get off the ground in 3 months leading to a report and legistlation in 8 months and a budget authorization to actually do something in a year--by which time we are more than half way to a new election, and so voting commissions in every state in the Union will be unable to comply with any proposed changes including voting by paper ballot. Oh yeah, I forgot the obligatory public review and comment period--that is another 60 to 90 days.
You aren't going to see any changes by the next election at this rate.
Tell me I am wrong. I really want to be wrong about this.

If that's the Conyers who was responsible for the following...
... you'll want to keep him the hell away from trying to make tech law... he's taken entirely to much media corporation money and tried to pass off those two examples of idiocy in return. He's not "evil" or "bad"... just plain ignorant of the tech he tries to make laws for.
Unless you want media-sponsored secret laws governing the internet (see H.R.4569 above) you'll keep him on the trail of impeaching somebody or the other.
Again, keep him away from making tech law.
(Of course his outlawing EVM's would be an exception... right? )

The "report", or whatever it was, must have been printed on Diebold, (non-banking), printers. They got jammed in the printer and then curled up and faded before anyone could figure out what was happening.
It was just a mess, I tell you. What could anybody do?
Damn you, Floridiot!

I am not trying to be funny or off topic, or evil.
But since we can torture our enemies now that the constitution is gone, why not just torture these fucking bastards?

I forgot to add...
I suggest vice-grips and propane torches. I think that should be effective.

Or are some of you thinking there should still be a Constitution?
MAKE UP YOUR FUCKING MIND!

all in all it wont matter in the end.
when superbowl 398 is the latest thing.
my rotting corpse will probably either be dust or very stinky.
The question you must ask yourselves is do you still want to be dying in this same old electromagnetic sea of death?
