ABC News on Diebold:

Okay, great. So ABC News allows Mathmetician John Allen Paulos to examine the work of the Princeton crew who showed how easy it was to hack voting machines.

He determined that, although the Princeton crew gave no quarter to election theft in the past, one of the major stumbling blocks to theft theories (that it would take coordination of many people across the nation) is negated by the revelation that a virus can be spread among machines far and wide.

Thank God ABC's investigative reporter Brian Ross hasn't touched this, 20/20 hasn't run a segment, and you can't find a hint of it in any TV coverage or on the homepage...
