Re: “The Post-Election Challenge for Dummies

With a read of your article about dummies , there are documents from the supplier Diebold going back a number of years in similar situations Dems in this case in Alaska where Dieblod agreed that the data base and data on them was PUBLIC data not their data. They did not say that the source code was public that drives the program but any data from the election generated from the election, reports data bases, and other items was NOT their proprietary data but public data. Further based on this letter Hillsborough County Florida in 2009 issued an answer to a public document request where they acknowledged that the Alaska letter was valid and they issued an identical worded letter from the supplier Diebold saying the same thing signed by Diebold then Premier Election services staff in Florida. I am sure that the Democratic Party of Alaska or Hillsborough County Elections could supply the letters. It is understandable with out a court order how a supplier (Diebold now Dominion) would want to protect a client from discovery of poor election management by sending them a letter that all the data in the machine was proprietary, (Thus no one could see it to create a forensic analysis of the administrations actions) and they could sue the customer if they released the election data contained on the software.. but in the case of real court action or threat of it, each time the supplier was forced to acknowledge that the people owned the data of an election as most State laws provide.

This should seem to satisfy the issue on IF the public and or parties have the right to it, and there is admission by the supplier of the voting machines in this case that the public does own it as any citizen would support after all the elections are the peoples business not corporations and not paid administrators. This should be a red flag by administrators that the TBI should be looking into this with full staff, was the right to vote in Federal races and State races lost and if so how? Further the election commission or canvass should grant emergency time knowing this and knowing what you reported as stalling time to clear this election up, and be fair to all the candidates who run for office, so they are credited with only the actual votes they earned.
