FOX & Friends Guest Demonstrates How to Hack a Diebold Voting Machine - Sens. Boxer & Dodd Introduce Emergency Legislation to Require Paper Ballots

Reported by Marie Therese - September 27, 2006 -

Sometime between September 3rd and 17th, at a time when I was on a leave of absence from News Hounds due to a total computer meltdown, a remarkable event occurred on FOX & Friends First, the show that I monitor. Hosts Steve Doocy and Alisyn Camerota booked Princeton Professor Ed Felten to demonstrate exactly how to hack a Diebold voting machine. Both hosts were obviously surprised about how easy the process would be. Check out the video below. Then take a few minutes to contact Senator Barbara Boxer and/or Senator Christopher Dodd at the email addresses below and tell them that you support the emergency legislation they have just introduced which would require a contingency paper trail for all electronic voting machines, paid for by the federal government. Also, call your own Senators to encourage them to vote in favor of the bill. For more information go to BradBlog.
