‘Ring of Fire’ Can’t Stop Laughing About BRAD BLOG Headline on GA Supreme Court Decision

RingOfFire headshotsBy Brad Friedman

On this coming weekend’s Ring of Fire on Air America Radio, attorney/co-host Mike Papantonio can’t stop laughing as he reads our headline from last week: “Georgia Supreme Court Rules Unauditable, Unverifiable Elections Are Just Fine”.

Though they give me the credit, it was Rady Ananda’s story here last week which expertly covered Diebold’s wholly unverifiable touch-screen voting machines receiving the thumbs up for use across the entire state of Georgia, where they’ve been using them since 2002.   That, even though there is no way to determine that any vote ever cast on any of them has ever been recorded accurately as per any voter’s intent.

Once Pap stops laughing at our headline, he and David Bender discuss the article noting its even more terrifying “subtext”, our previous coverage of the horrifying ES&S takeover over of Diebold’s election division.

“Bad as Diebold was, it’s now gonna be ES&S, their largest competitor … ES&S may be the single voting machine company — this one Goliath that will be unaccountable, unauditable to anybody — and that’s really where we’re headed,” Bender accurately warns. He advises folks to call Congress at 202-224-3121 in support of Sen. Chuck Schumer’s demand for a DoJ antitrust investigation on this matter. We’ll also point you to BlackBoxVoting.org who instructs how you can send your own antitrust complaint to the DoJ.

Finally, after Pap details ES&S’ legendarily monumental “screw-ups” over the years (his firm was one of those who took on the state of Florida and ES&S after their voting machines simply lost 18,000 votes cast in the 2006 FL-13 U.S. House race, decided for the Republican candidate by just 369 votes), they go on to say some extraordinarily kind things about our work here at The BRAD BLOG.

My thanks to both Pap and David along with the swell Ring Of Fire producers for tipping us off with the exclusive heads-up in advance of this weekend’s show — both for their coverage of this issue, and for those exceptionally kind accolades.

Here’s the 4.5 minute conversation [MP3] to air this weekend.

  1. Why bother with such an expensive election charade? Just make-work for ES&S? We might as well just let corporations name their own front men. …..OR NOT.

    Great job Rady!

  2. yeah, this is one article I can send to the family… lol. I DID send them the GA article, since I have family there…

    but you’re oh-so-right about the expensive charade – like the bankster bailouts being an expensive charade to prop up a failed monetary system.

  3. Hello from Russia!
    Can I quote a post in your blog with the link to you?
