Diebold CEO resigns
Wally O'Dell is now the former CEO of the controversial Diebold, manufacturers of the notoriously faulty voting machines that have been installed across America. O'Dell reportedly resigned for the ubiquitous "personal reasons," but the resignation comes with weeks of Diebold being slammed all over the place:
- Nov. 29th, via Slashdot: Diebold fails to reveal code as required by North Carolina law, and threatens to remove company operations from the state.
- Dec. 7th, via Wired: "California Attorney General Bill Lockyer said on Tuesday he would sue electronic voting-machine maker Diebold on charges it defrauded the state with false claims about its products."
- Dec. 13th, via USA Today: "County says electronic voting machines can be hacked"
