Code Red: Computerized Election Theft and the New American Century by Jonathan D. Simon (self-published, to buy go to www.codered2016.com)
I purchased this book after hearing the author speak at a conference on election reform. It’s definitely worth reading. Jonathan Simon, executive director of Election Defense Alliance, makes a strong case for the probability of computerized election theft. The United States has had computerized voting machines nationwide since the Help America Vote Act was passed as a reaction to the voting issues of the 2000 Presidential Election. This machines are built and programmed by private contractors, and totally under their control. There is no way to subpoena them to get an audit trail or access to the machines, because this information is considered proprietary. We are supposed to just trust the companies (who are all owned by Republican supporters). Therefore, conveniently, there is no way for those who question election results to produce evidence that election theft occurred. Nevertheless, Simon has spent the past 15 years doing forensic analysis of voting results and exit polls, and has very compelling statistical evidence that someone is changing votes in key contests so that right wing candidates win much more often than exit polls would indicate they should. It’s a fascinating and disturbing look into our supposedly democratic voting process.
