Trust but verify


The Maryland Board of Elections has asked both UMBC and UMCP to investigate allegations of the corruptibility of Maryland's Diebold-made electronic voting machines.

After yesterday's squeaker election in the reddest corner of Ohio, we all need to know how well the Diebold Corporation keeps the democratic covenant with the citizens of our country.

Remember, Walden O'Dell, chief executive of Diebold Inc. was "committed to helping Ohio deliver its electoral votes to the president next year." [2004] More questions for Diebold here, too.

Not that Maryland Republicans would ever allow themselves to be bought, of course.
