Voter fraud

Brasscheck TV

How we got our president

As recently as the 1990s, it was almost impossible to find information, let alone reporting, about the reality of election fraud in America.

On the rare occasions when election fraud was acknowledged to exist, it was described as a local problem and an aberration - or something that only happens in "backward" countries.

This video, which describes the vulnerabilities of a vote counting system widely used in America, shows that not only is election fraud in the US possible, it's built right into the system.

Diebold is, perhaps not surprisingly, a big financial supporter of George Bush Jr.

Security Analysis of the Diebold AccuVote-TS Voting Machine

Ariel J. Feldman, J. Alex Halderman, and Edward W. Felten

Abstract This paper presents a fully independent security study of a Diebold AccuVote-TS voting machine, including its hardware and software. We obtained the machine from a private party. Analysis of the machine, in light of real election procedures, shows that it is vulnerable to extremely serious attacks. For example, an attacker who gets physical access to a machine or its removable memory card for as little as one minute could install malicious code; malicious code on a machine could steal votes undetectably, modifying all records, logs, and counters to be consistent with the fraudulent vote count it creates. An attacker could also create malicious code that spreads automatically and silently from machine to machine during normal election activities — a voting-machine virus. We have constructed working demonstrations of these attacks in our lab. Mitigating these threats will require changes to the voting machine's hardware and software and the adoption of more rigorous election procedures.
