Republican National Committee Prepares for Computerized Voting Fraud Legal Battle
CHICAGO, IL–(Marketwire – November 4, 2008) – Forensicon, Inc., a Chicago-based computer forensics company, was contacted last Thursday by a security firm lining up vendors to assist the Republican National Committee with consulting related to potential allegations of computerized voter fraud. It has been widely reported that electronic voting machines in many states are vulnerable to hacking by anyone with the right equipment and a few minutes’ access to the voting machine.
Yesterday, noted Chicago resident Oprah Winfrey attempted to cast her vote for her candidate, but the vote failed to register correctly.
It has been widely reported that electronic voting machines in many states are vulnerable to hacking by anyone with the right equipment and a few minutes’ access to the voting machine with a handheld computing device. The lack of printed voting receipts in many of these systems leaves the election ballots in many areas vulnerable to rampant fraud and abuse.
“If the election returns vary significantly from the polled numbers in any precincts that proves crucial to the election outcome, I expect that a legal struggle over the validity of the election results will ensue,” said Forensicon’s President, Lee Neubecker.
