The Computer lost the Vote...

You knew this would happen. The computerized voting machines in Miami lost the records of votes cast in 2002.



"Florida is headed toward being the next Florida."

These machines are inherently untrustworthy. You can't see what goes into the computer. You can't see if it gets corrupted as it come out, whether the corruption is accidental or intentional. And you really can't do a recount of bytes (since you don't know if it was corrupted or not). And of course, Florida has made a law against even trying a recount, since these machines are so trustworthy...
