Ion Sancho On State of Florida Elections

Leon County election supervisor Ion Sancho on the state of Florida's ballot boxes.

"We need more audits. We need recounts," Sancho said. "Trust no one. If it can't be verified, it can't be used."

It gets worse.

"There is no government oversight of elections. Private vendors are not accountable to the citizenry."

Florida elections shouldn't be left to Diebold. They are against audits because they claim it would give away their trade secrets. Diebold knew about the voting machine flaws. They threatened to sue bloggers who posted information from their website. They later relented. Diebold's "trade secrets" is about covering their asses from negligence.
