    there are demonstrably false claims being spread around on blogs
    Prove the claims false.  Prove that no votes were altered.  

    If the claims are "demonstrably false" that should be easy - demonstrate it.  I look forward to your exacting QED.

    Explain the reports of a "manual" data center failover that were circulated at the time.  

    Like I said 8 years later proving anything, one way or the other, is more difficult.

      You want me to prove that a web server reporting the election results did not alter the results.

      I'm surprised this needs to be proven, but here it goes:

      First, the election results were entered into the web site after those totals received from the precincts.  This data was entered by SOS employees through a web interface---the web site does not have direct access to the voting machines or tabulators from the precincts, so of course it could not alter the ballots.

      Second, the web site could not misreport the totals from the precincts, because this would have been noticed when the election results were certified.
