I can't believe the ballot-tampering scandal that is unfolding in my home state and potentially around the country. If there was ever a need for open-source software, it's in vote-counting. Companies that create ballot-counting machines should be held to excruciating public scrutiny. (It is our process of electing our leaders, after all.) Apparently, they're not. And Senators should definitely not own stock in said secretive companies that they used to run. This is very scary stuff.
