    Electronic voting machines are susceptible to fraud. Care, oversight, and preventative measures are required. Instead of roving Democrats impersonating voters for the purpose of voter fraud (part of the premise of the Republican's disenfranchise voters effort), I've always said the real danger of voter fraud occurs in the voting infrastructure and how votes are recorded and tabulated.

    nope republicans are always doing or trying to pass voter restriction laws when there is no evidence of voter fraud. so really republicans trying to stop the poor from voting has been the fraud. locally done of course.

    Poor little Rubio.

    Even if this is true, Trump came in #2 in Texas and #1 in Virginia.

    The Republican Party and Marco are so desperate. They want him to lead their party so bad.

    Democrats do not need to worry about rigging the vote as their super electorate system makes voting kind of irrelevant.
    With the RNC neocons saying they will vote for Hillary if Trump gets confirmed, kind of hints as to the illusion of the two party system.

    Yes, the golden boy of the neocons, and Cruz who's wife is the Goldman Sachs / CFR insider.

    How embarrassing for Republicans who can't stand Trump to have to vote for Clinton or stay home in the fall? The GOP can't very well put up a third party candidate themselves since that would just be a more expensive way to install Clinton.

    I can't believe Reince Priebus is still chair of the RNC. He watches this whole thing go down while tweeting soundbites like his ship isn't doing Titanic the sequel. From the last debate before Super Tuesday: "Tonight we saw another spirited debate between the most diverse & well-qualified group of presidential candidates in history."

    I follow him on Twitter and his feed is pathetic. He is so gone after the election. They rue the day they let Michael Steele get away. They can't fire Reince now unless they want to inject more disfunction into the process.

    Wasserman Schultz has really gone to the dark side now by supporting legislation that would gut the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. Trying to round up enough Democrats to help the GOP stave off new regulations for two more years on payday loans?! Oh excuse me, how she put it was more like “preserving access to credit in underserved communities” like they're doing with a state law in Florida.

    Why doesn't she resign from the DNC, flash her GOP mole card and get back her Republican registration and then campaign to replace Priebus on the RNC where she belongs.

    Go ahead and ask me how I really feel about DWS' massive betrayal of Warren, never mind people who need a payday loan that doesn't go for somewhere between 300-2000%. This must be Wasserman Schultz's idea of payback for Warren not immediately endorsing Clinton.

    These guys explain how easy the diebold machine can be hacked via RF remote control . They call it the man in the middle attack.

    That's a misleading name. Man in the middle usually refers to a type of side channel attack, basically using inferred values to bypass specific validations. I mean that you could turn up a lot of completely unrelated things if you google man in the middle attacks.

    This is how they describe the remote attack:
    *What makes this hack so troubling --- and different from those which have come before it --- is that it doesn't require any actual changes to, or even knowledge of, the voting system software or its memory card programming. It's not a cyberattack. It's a "Man-in-the-middle" attack where a tiny, $10.50 piece of electronics is inserted into the system between the voter and the main circuit board of the voting system allowing for complete control over the touch-screen system and the entire voting process along with it.*

    Has anyone seen Steele lately on Real Time or other political talk shows? He actually comes across as a half-way reasonable guy, now that it's no longer part of his job to spew apparatchik spin.

    I don't know why the Dems ever got rid of Howard Dean as party chair in the first place. His 50-state strategy was a heck of a lot more successful than anything DWS has done since.
