Onto the fun subject of election fraud, we watched the documentary “Hacking Democracy–  billed as “the disturbingly shocking HBO documentary Hacking Democracy bravely tangles with our nation’s ills at the heart of democracy. The film the Diebold corporation doesn’t want you to see, this revelatory journey follows tenacious Seattle grandmother Bev Harris and her band of extraordinary citizen-activists as they set out to ask one simple question: How does America count its votes?” 

Spoiler alert: the Diebold and ES&S machines, memory cards, and central tabulators can be easily hacked and rigged for any desired outcome. The machines in the film are still used today. They run Windows XP. We can do better. 

Watch it for free here: Hacking Democracy.  

A crucial 7 minutes of the film is here: 

The film was nominated for an Emmy for Outstanding Long Form Investigative Journalism and features an election official in Tallahassee who used to go to Kevin’s baseball games. 

Last but not least it’s a dog who looks high as hell. 

As with all wtf wednesdays, there are no answers, only questions leading to more questions.
