Meet election integrity expert John Washburn!

Tuesday, January 31st, 11 a.m. to noon Central (9-10 Pacific) on NoLiesRadio.org (archived here a few hours after broadcast).

Guest: John Washburn, Wisconsin-based software engineer and election integrity activist. (Check out his blog and website.)

Is it just a coincidence that Wisconsin is about to "upgrade" to "new, improved" voting machines just in time for the nationally-important Scott Walker recall election? Why are those machines - and just about all voting machines - "black box" systems with proprietary software, so that only the people who program the machines know how they work (and how to hack them)?

The 1% needs Walker to win so it can keep pushing the 99% into poverty. You can bet they'll be pulling out all the stops. If the recall-Walker people allow the election to proceed on black-box machines, the result (like the results of so many stolen elections, including the Bush coups of 2000 and 2004) is easily predictable.

  1. The Carter Foundation monitors elections. They won't monitor elections in the US because we don't meet their minimum requirements for transparency. I'm no huge fan of Jimmy Carter, because of Ziggy, etc, but a good starting place might be to have our election processes meet the Carter Foundation's minimum requirements for monitoring.
