Diebold Added Secret Patch to Georgia E-Voting Systems in 2002, Whistleblowers Say

By Matthew Cardinale, News Editor, Atlanta Progressive News (September 28, 2006)

(APN) ATLANTA – Top Diebold corporation officials ordered workers to install secret files to Georgia’s electronic voting machines shortly before the 2002 Elections, at least two whistleblowers are now asserting, Atlanta Progressive News has learned.

Former Diebold official Chris Hood told his story concerning the secret “patch” to Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., for Kennedy’s second article on electronic voting in this week’s Rolling Stone Magazine.

Hood’s claims corroborate a second whistleblower who spoke with Black Box Voting and Wired News in 2003.

Whistleblower Accounts

“With the primaries looming, [Chief of Diebold’s Election Division] Urosevich was personally distributing a ‘patch,’ a little piece of software designed to correct glitches in the computer program,” Rolling Stone Magazine reported.

"We were told that it was intended to fix the clock in the system, which it didn't do," Hood told Rolling Stone. "The curious thing is the very swift, covert way this was done."

"It was an unauthorized patch, and they were trying to keep it secret from the state," Hood told Rolling Stone.

"We were told not to talk to county personnel about it. I received instructions directly from Urosevich. It was very unusual that a president of the company would give an order like that and be involved at that level,” Hood told Rolling Stone.

Yes, this is actually an old story. If I recall correctly, there was a mysterious file found in the software of Georgia voting machines named "rape Georgia".

Of course, at the time, no one cared a whit about this "conspiracy theory".

I am sure Robert Kennedy is working hard in this investigation but will it make a whole hell of a lot of difference if voting machines are actually found to be rigged? It's not made any difference to the American on the street that the president is a liar and has committed more illegal acts than any other president in the nation's history.

Right now, most people care more about the next baseball game than they do about the upcoming election or the fact that their rights are being taken away even as they cheer on their favorite players.

They're terrified of imaginary terrorists, yet they are nonchalent and casual when it comes to the actual truth about this president.

:? :? :?
