    which is linked in the Brad Blog is the true story of my local Supervisor of Elections who hired a company test the Diebold system that was going to be mandated by the state to be used in all Florida precincts and that is what this video showed.  

    Ion Sancho is the Supervisor of Elections in Leon County Florida for the last 20 years.  He is the man in the white dress shirt and one of the best Supervisors of Elections in the entire US and has testified before Congress about the elections process.  After having the Diebold system independently tested, Sancho refused to use the Diebold systems because they were not secure.  As a result of his refusal, Ion Sancho caught a lot of flak from the state for having the system tested and was even threatened to be removed from office by the state for refusing to use the Diebold system.  Ion Sancho was also the first Supervisor of Elections in Florida to refuse to do the voter purge that Gov. Scott mandated.

        I tried several times to embed and finally gave up.  Let's just say that, well........I am terminally, technologically challenged.

        This is why probably the most important person you can elect is your Supervisor of Elections.  The Supervisors of Elections are our guardians of democracy.  Ion Sancho ran for Supervisor of Elections after a horrendously botched election that resulted in the previous Supervisor being removed from his post.  Since Sancho came in, Leon County, Florida has been a paragon of well run and very accurate elections.

          then click on EMBED

          then copy/paste the embed coding that starts with iframe width blah blah blah

            I do not use the links paste then?  I am guessing that is where my problem was.

            Eventually, I might actually learn how to do some of this stuff.  Then I might try writing more diaries.  LOL

            Again thank you.

              No, don't use the URL at top of screen.

              Follow instructions above.  Go to YT, pic a vid, follow instructions and post one here, K?  Let me know if you hit a snag and I will walk you through it again.  : ))
