News: Kentucky Officials "Changed Votes At Voting Machines"

from the smoking-gun dept.
The indispensible jamie found a report out of Kentucky of exactly the kind of shenanigans that voting-transparency advocates have been warning about: a circuit court judge, a county clerk, and election officials are among eight people indicted for gaming elections in 2002, 2004, and 2006. As described in the indictment (PDF), the election officials divvied up money intended to buy votes and then changed votes on the county's (popular, unverifiable) ES&S touch- screen voting systems, affecting the outcome of elections at the local, state, and federal levels.
