Voting Machine Manufacturers Won't Sell to Florida's Capital

The three major companies that manufacture voting machines are refusing to sell their machines to Leon County, Florida - the county where Tallahassee, Florida's capital city, is located.

The CEO of the largest voting machine manufacturer, Wally O'Dell of Diebold, is best known for being a Bush "Pioneer" (bundling at least $100,000 in contributions) and for telling supporters he was commited to delivering Ohio's electoral votes for President Bush's camapign.

Diebold has generously offered to sell its voting machines to Leon County, but only if they agree to stop testing the machines for security flaws - the same kind of testing that Leon County Supervisor of Elections, Ion Sancho and California Secretary of State performed that found that votes recorded by the machines were vulnerable to tampering without detection.
