Voting machines again 

What makes me mad about this next story is that it's not even a security issue, it's an issue of prudent shopping. When you buy something big or important you should have the opportunity to get an independent evaluation of it.

But if you're New Jersey, and you want to use voting machines from Sequoia, Sequoia will threaten to sue if you hire an outside expert to examine their voting machines. The outside expert reported finding cases where the machines, without being hacked, were adding up votes wrong.

Meanwhile, voting machines are more expensive than advertised.
