Diebold voting machines open to fraud: "The documents, from Diebold Elections Systems, a company in charge of the electronic voting machines in 37 states, prove that the company knowingly produced an electronic election system that contained absolutely no security against voter fraud. In fact, the lead engineer from Diebold wrote over two years ago that anyone could change votes without leaving a trail: 'Right now you can open GEMS' .mdb file with MS-Access, and alter its contents. That includes the audit log.' GEMS stands for Global Election Management System and is the central computer in each county on which the votes are stored after the election.

"Diebold has filed cease and desist orders against anyone who has attempted to share these memos with the public. They have taken down hosts all over the world, including the personal website of the very journalist who broke this story, Bev Harris."
