Cosmic Iguana Percieves Diebold Plan



... The access panel door on a Diebold AccuVote-TS voting machine — the door that protects the memory card that stores the votes, and is the main barrier to the injection of a virus — can be opened with a standard key that is widely available on the Internet....

... A little research revealed that the exact same key is used widely in office furniture, electronic equipment, jukeboxes, and hotel minibars. It’s a standard part, and like most standard parts it’s easily purchased on the Internet.... [*]

It has been widely observed that Diebold is the largest maker of ATMs as well as voting machines. The fact the Diebold makes paperless voting machines, can only be seen as a deliberate feature, not a bug. Likewise, I'm sure if people could use minibar keys to open ATMs, Diebold would be out of business. Therefore, I think we can conclude that we now see the whole of Diebold's deliberate plan. Easily openable hardware, easily hackable software, and no paper trail to be responsible to.

Don't be surprised if the Republicans win this election, too. It could just be what is in the cards (memory cards, that is).
