Pentagon Dumps Vulnerable Internet Voting System

Not that this comes anywhere near to redeeming these bastards in my eyes--it's quite possible that they just saw a PR disaster looming and decided to head this one off at the pass. I especially liked this quote from Wolfowitz:

Deputy Defense Secretary Paul Wolfowitz wrote a memo on Jan. 30 saying the Pentagon "will not be using the SERVE Internet voting project in view of the inability to assure legitimacy of votes that would be cast using the system, which thereby brings into doubt the integrity of election results," said a defense official, speaking on condition of anonymity.

This doesn't change the issue in re Diebold and electronic voting machines, but at least we have the administration on record as having recognized the trouble with internet voting and acknowledging that the problem won't be going away any time soon.
