"Hacking Democracy" MUST WATCH

I saw this documentary late one night right after the 2006 Midterm Elections. The issue of electronic voting is quickly becoming an incredibly important issue for me. This video is just over half an hour. So, watch it at home one night or during your lunch hour. (We can't have you destroying American productivity!) But, PLEASE watch it. Don't just watch it, forward a link to this post to as many people as you can.

Here's the bottom line. We're giving tens of millions of dollars of contracts to Diebold without them even having to prove to people that they are safe from hackers. This documentary was earth shattering to me. If we can get a critical mass of people to care about this issue, we can do something about it!

We should start in Florida's 13th Congressional District, where Democrat Christine Jennings was screwed out of victory because Diebold's machines "lost" 18,000 votes in a race where she lost by less than 400.

Here is the video that you MUST watch:

This issue of the integrity of our votes is among the most critical issues of our time. Hats off to the makers of "Hacking Democracy", and to Lane Hudson for getting more people interested.

HBO's "Hacking Democracy" released on DVD... See the film makers website -

The controversial HBO documentary 'Hacking Democracy' DVD is released on Tuesday, March 27th, including extra footage never seen before. Filmed over three years this exposé follows the investigations of a team of citizen activists from Black Box Voting and the Florida Fair Elections Coalition as they take on the electronic voting industry, targeting the Diebold corporation.

The film reveals incendiary evidence from the dumpsters of Texas to the ballot boxes of Ohio, exposing secrecy, votes in the trash, hackable software and election officials rigging the presidential recount. And finally in Florida one brave election official, Ion Sancho, gave Black Box Voting and the film makers access to his county's Diebold voting system, with dramatic consequences.

Ultimately proving our votes can be stolen without a trace "Hacking Democracy" culminates in the famous 'Hursti Hack', a duel between the Diebold voting machines and a computer hacker from Finland - with America's democracy at stake.
