well, so much for my praise of the new optical scan voting machines last week.
Recount gives Courtney win in 2nd District
HARTFORD, Conn. --A roller-coaster recount that uncovered vote-counting flaws in several Connecticut towns gave Democrat Joe Courtney a narrow victory over three-term Republican Rep. Rob Simmons on Tuesday.
As our CTnewsjunkie points out:
More towns in the Second Congressional District were chosen as test sites for the new optical scan voting technology than any other Congressional District
and..... AND In late October UConn REPORTED that it found a number of vulnerabilities with the new Diebold AccuVote Optical Scan machines.
I'm calling my town hall -- I'll keep you posted.
