A voting system used in 34 states contains a critical programming error that can cause votes to be dropped while being electronically transferred from memory cards to a central tallying point, the manufacturer acknowledges.
The problem was identified after complaints from Ohio elections officials following the March primary there, but the logic error that is the root of the problem has been part of the software for 10 years, said Chris Riggall, a spokesman for Premier Election Solutions, formerly known as Diebold.
The flawed software is on both touch screen and optical scan voting machines made by Premier and the problem with vote counts is most likely to affect larger jurisdictions that feed many memory cards to a central counting database rapidly.

I challenge all those lawyers who were working so hard to prove that Obama was not eligible for the Presidency (for the good of the people) to prove that We The People are not legally liable to pay the bills for all the mistakes made by the government for the last ten years, since it cannot be proved they had the legal authority to make those decisions on our behalf.
