Hack The Election 

San Jose Mercury News reports on more security risks with Diebold election machines. The state of Maryland hired the consulting firm Raba Technologies to hack in to it's Diebold voting system with ominous results:
"The team was able to demonstrate the ability to switch two candidates,'' the Raba scientists warned legislators. "Consequently, the voter appeared to vote for the candidate of his choice but he actually voted for another candidate.''

Diebold is brushing off the concerns - understandable since their board of directors are supporting the GOP. Given what happened in Florida in 2000, it's not at all that far-fetched to suspect that the Bush cabinet is trying to make certain that they remain in office no matter what the cost.
