  •  Great work DC Pl Sci (none)
    Except I would say that Professor Ted Selker (Caltech/MIT Voter Technology Project) is making sense ("that paper trails are just as subject to hacking as "audio" trails, which just tell the voter how s/he voted").

    Appears that the "frame" is to set up a straw man of an ATM type throw-away "receipt" versus no audit trail whatsoever!  Then they will "conclude" that the ATM bits of paper are pointless, BUT they will recommend them anyway to show that they have bent over backwards to please the tinhat crowd!

    EDUCATE THE PUBLIC!

    •  Not "on the dais." (none)
      Only the Senators sit on the dais.  The witnesses are at the witness table.  But I do agree with you that Selker does make some sense.  Still, I think a paper trail (perhaps in addition to whatever other kind of trail one wants to invent) proved its utility beyond any real doubt in the Washington State governor's race this year.

      Piss off Frank Luntz: don't use Republican issue frames like "Social Security crisis."
