Franklin Co., Ohio, Board of Elections Chairman Matt Damschroder said, "I don't think that anyone can point to any empirical evidence that would lead any reasonable person to say the voting systems used in Ohio are flawed, thus requiring a new round of testing." Is this man kidding? He points to the federal and state testing and then makes a totally idiotic statement like that. He only needs to look back to the last general election and how poorly machines operated in his state. He only needs to look at the California “Top-To-Bottom Review” to see what federal testing means. Perhaps it’s time to begin naming an occasional “Enemy of Democracy.” Matt is it until replaced by another numbskull....
