David's Stance Against Paperless Voting Technology HOT
excerpt from Paperless Voting to be Declared Unconstitutional
by Tomtech :: DailyKos
Texas has a suffrage amendment in it's constitution.
In all elections by the people, the vote shall be by ballot, and the Legislature shall provide for the numbering of tickets and make such other regulations as may be necessary to detect and punish fraud and preserve the purity of the ballot box; and the Legislature shall provide by law for the registration of all voters. (Amended Aug. 11, 1891, and Nov. 8, 1966.) Paperless voting cannot fill these requirements. Where is the ballot, where is the numbering, where is the ballot box, and how does paperless voting fulfill these requirements?
There is one major problem preventing this declaration, but you can help make it happen.
Come below and I will tell you about the man who will make that declaration.
David Van Os, the Democratic Candidate for Attorney General, stated Tuesday night before a crowd of Democratic activists that he will make the declaration as soon as he takes office in January.
[update]David has a post concerning voting machines at his website from last November. Thanks to trykindness who talked to David and confirmed this. David also stated that he intends to file a lawsuit to challenge paperless voting.
The current Texas Attorney General is a Republican, who doesn't care about the constitution, or the people and we need to help David get him out of office.
David also has vowed to go after the Republican culture of corruption that permeates Texas politics. He also vowed to instigate anti-trust investigations against insurance and oil companies who continue to raise their prices while making record profits.
David is a lifelong progressive who has been active in grassroots politics for over 30 years. David won, Bill Moyers', Backbone Campaign "Spine Award" in 2005. READ FULL STORY >>
