Green Party still fighting in court over the recount
Remember when Jill Stein got all that money from Dem voters to challenge for a recount in Wisconsin and Pennsylvania? Everyone said she was ripping off voters. Well, over a year later and that money is still being put to good use. In Wisconsin, their lawyers won a major victory that allows them to actually study the source code of the electronic voting machines. This will be the first time an outside source has been able to get a look at this closely guarded code. As Jill Stein said:
Incredibly, the source code for voting software has never before been examined for evidence of tampering or errors that would compromise an election!
Turns out the rights of the corporation to hide its proprietary information is given greater legal protection than the rights of the voters to have a fair and legal democracy. Who knew?
Now the only thing holding up this examination is the the Wisconsin Election Commission (WEC) must put in place confidentiality rules to protect the software companies’ private information. So of course, the software companies Dominion Voting Systems, Inc. and Election Systems & Software, Inc., have sought prevent them from communicating with the public about their findings – even if they agree not to disclose anything proprietary.
If – though let’s be honest it is probably when, not if – the WEC refuses to allow them to communicate their findings if they find that the software is designed to allow vote tampering, then the Green Party is prepared to challenge that decision in court.
Meanwhile, in Pennsylvania, things have gone so poorly that a statewide recount and examination of voting machine software was denied. Since Pennsylvania is completely paperless, only a complete forensic analysis of the voting equipment could verify the vote. Though the recount was derailed, the Green Party is challenging the constitutionality of Pennsylvania’s incredibly complicated recount procedure. The going is slow, however.ThinkingANew, Baba OhReally, Two way street and 26 othershypergrove, MisterTwister, Admiral Loinpresser, NJOCK, Peace Patriot, Blackspade, rudycantfail, Scuba, Beebee, xynthee, Grateful Curd, Fuddnik, eridani, Common good, ChefEric, Charles, Punxsutawney, Gryneos, PADemD, DesertRat2015, jwirr, nevereVereven, A little weird, Babel 17, , daleanime like this
Think of all the “moderates” who, throughout history, have failed to oppose state-sanctioned aggression, oppression, and abuse, from slavery to child labor, while maligning those who call for change as dangerous and misguided, violent radicals. And yet, in retrospect, when a renewed social contract is established as the new normal, the unlawful actions that brought about these societal shifts are turned into mythical tales of nationalistic heroism and dates for kids to memorize at school.https://limitedhangoutblog.com/2017/02/08/lets-talk-about-violence/
