Questions Raised on Diebold Voting Machines in Arizona and in Other States
October 8, 2008
As the election nears in battleground states like Arizona, a new revelation came when Diebold which has voting machines in states like North Carolina as there could be tampering with these machines and the problem is widespread as Diebold is the nation's only voting machine maker.
Two irregularities regarding the fashion in which the patches were installed were found on the machines by Stephen Spoonamore, founder and former CEO of Cybrinth LLC and cyber-security expert. Firstly, Diebold CEO Bob Urosevich flew personally from Texas to install the patches. These patches were installed in only the core Democratic counties, including Dekalb and Fulton.
A copy of Diebold’s special “patch” was submitted to Spoonamore, who became even more suspicious when, upon closer examination, the programs behaved in a fashion that is inconsistent with the purpose Diebold claimed. Spoonamore confirmed that the patch contained nothing to fix the clocks on Diebold machines.
