I know it's late but hopefully this'll stay up into the morning so many more people will see it.
If this is what it purports to be, this is gonna be BIG, folks!!
"Dan Rather Reports" on HD Net this coming Tuesday, will air an hour-long special highlighting conclusive new evidence of nationwide election-machine failures due to touch-screen voting machines manufactured by ES&S Systems.
The special program will also expose illegal Filipino sweatshops where the faulty ES&S iVotronic Direct Recording Electronic (DRE) touch-screen voting machines are produced. Rather will report workers at the sweatshops receive less than $2.50 per day for their day’s work, and that quality control for the machines consists of ‘shaking the machine to check for loose screws’.
In a press release Sunday, HD Net announced the content of this Tuesday’s "Dan Rather Reports". The investigative report is dedicated to the failures of touch-screen voting and the companies that produce them.

The text of the press release:
What: This Tuesday, DAN RATHER REPORTS presents conclusive evidence of the failure of touch screen voting machines across the country. The episode, "The Trouble with Touch Screens", is an entire hour devoted to new information on this story. From scientists involved in testing the equipment, to manufacturers in third world countries who shipped these defective voting machines to the United States DAN RATHER REPORTS will present new information showing that these defective machines may have altered the outcome of multiple elections.
When: Dan Rather Reports "The Trouble with Touch Screens" will air Tuesday, August 14 at 8:00 p.m. ET. The program also airs at 11:00 p.m. ET to accommodate west coast prime time.
A screener clip is available.
This special will only air on HD Net so not everyone will be able to see it but I’m quite sure copies will end up online within a very short time.
In the clip, pay special attention to the fact that the only quality assurance test performed on the machines by ES&S workers before they’re shipped out is a so-called "shake test" to ensure no loose pieces were left in the machines manufactured in the Philippines.
These workers making only $2.10-$2.50 per day work in sweat shops operated by ES&S must do so where rats and snakes are removed by the truckload daily.
And the American who was dispatched to deal with problems at the factory back in 2001, admits that the touch-screens failed and "bubbled" as far back as then. But what has been done about it since?
I think it’d be an understatement to say that this has the potential to be big folks. It’s apparently the evidence we’ve been looking for since at least the 2004 election.
Watch the clip, it starts out with Christine Jennings talking about her 2006 congressional district race in Sarasota, Fla. (my district btw) in which she lost by a pitifully small number of votes.
And, the evidence of sweatshops could make this a TWO-FER!
Finally JUSTICE! (I’m praying)
