Like a lot of people, I’ve been thinking a lot about the upcoming primaries in Pennsylvania. On a separate stream, I’ve watched in train-wreck fear the wave of voting-machine failures, from Florida to Ohio. Thus, this report from the Star Ledger (ht: Raw Story) is particularly unsettling. The voting machines just subpoenad in New Jersey, which failed frequently on Super Tuesday and have no paper trail, are the same scheduled for use in the PA primary in two weeks.
All the more reason to pay attention to Dan Rather this time.
UPDATE: Election Day in PA, and as it turns out, there’s ample cause for concern. No conspiracy theories necessary now, just the inertia of stupidity + money to be made….
