Following his successful elevation of Ned Lamont to non-power, political genius Markos “Daily” Moulitsas takes on the hated Diebold machines:
Down in Florida, an epic battle is brewing over the electronic Diebold voting machines that ate 18,000 votes for Democrat Christine Jennings in FL-13 and cost her the election.
Not only is an expensive recount in the cards, but campaign and DCCC lawyers are flocking down, demanding the state freeze the machines for inspection.
These are the opening salvos in what will be the battle to end Diebold.
But only 36 people have given via our Blue Majority Act Blue page for the legal battles ahead.
To put it bluntly, to anyone who has ever complained about Diebold, this is your chance to put your money where your mouth is. No more talk needed. No more advocacy needed. This is a real-world, legal frontal assault on those electronic voting machines.
If we win this battle, you’ll be able to kiss Diebold goodbye.
Update: No one will confirm, but word is that the DCCC and the Jennings campaign are considering suing for a brand new election.
Update II: Machines in FL-13 were made by ES&S. Same difference.
As James Taranto points out, ES&S is a Diebold competitor.
