Bell Curve The Law Talking Guy Raised by Republicans U.S. West
Well, he's kind of had it in for me ever since I accidentally ran over his dog. Actually, replace "accidentally" with "repeatedly," and replace "dog" with "son."

We need to raise hell about this.

Not all of us have streaming video easily available at work. Now that videos are being posted willy-nilly, PLEASE at least tell us what these videos are about in words too.

I was able to see the video. In it, a programmer explains to a Congressional committee how easy it is to deliberately misprogram election machines. He also says he was asked to design such a program by the office of the Florida Speaker of the House, and that they were seeking a way to hide such source code, rather than detect it.

It was not clear to me when and where the hearing took place. I believe the Democrats had a hearing of their own on election-related issues sometime after the 2004 election... this might be the session. The audience and participants sounded all Democratic.

BellCurve, could you provide additional details? I'm really curious!

Just to clarify, the Representative Feeny that this guy is talking about who was Speaker of the Florida House in 2000 is a Republican who now represents the 24th District in Florida.

To be fair, they are asking him about programming which is fair but then they ask him about the reliability of exit polls which he is most likely not trained to analyze.

One other thing. I think this was one of the unofficial "hearings" the Democrats held after 2004. This is a perfect example of what I said in another post about how the Democrats are doing what they can but can't actually accomplish much so long as they are in the minority.

That was only a test. If that had been an actual hearing there would have been consequences. But since it was just pretend, it was dismissed by most of the press as partisan windbaggery.
