How Bush Won The 2004 Presidential Election

'Purging voter lists is just the beginning: the U.S. has embraced a form of electronic voting that is unreliable, unverifiable and funded by the radical Christian right,' writes Toronto-based journalist Sandeep S. Atwal, on his weblog InfernalPress.com. Atwal is just one of a growing chorus of voices charging that the move to electronic touch-screen voting machines is a bad idea. 'Voting machines are just as subject to program bugs as other computers, and very tempting for computer hackers,' warns David Dill, a Stanford computer scientist and founder of VerifiedVoting.org, who is leading a campaign to fight the spread of touch screen voting machines across the country. Just three companies make the machines that will report most of the 2004 election results -- Diebold, Sequoia, and ES&S, the latter of which is owned in part by Sen. Chuck Hagel (R-Nebraska). Many irregularities have already been reported in states that used touch screens in 2002. 'If [the critics'] charges are true, and there is little evidence to contradict their claims,' says Atwal, 'George W. Bush has already won the 2004 election.'
