I put a question mark at the end of the title of this article because when I technorati searched this guy’s name, only 15 results came back, so it’s a given that this video hasn’t been dissected enough by the blogosphere to confirm its authenticity, but here is supposed sworn testimony that Diebold machines have been hacked:
Computer programmer Clinton Eugene Curtis testifies under oath before the U.S. House Judiciary Members in Ohio (back in 2004) — video to the right (partial transcript below).
The video is at the website I linked to. Here is a partial transcript:
Are there computer programs that can be used to secretly fix elections?
How do you know that to be the case?
Because in October of 2000, I wrote a prototype for Congressman Tom Feeney [R-FL]…
It would rig an election?
It would flip the vote, 51-49. Whoever you wanted it to go to and whichever race you wanted to win.
And would that program that you designed, be something that elections officials… could detect?
They’d never see it.
So my question is: Why has it taken this long for the video to surface? ::Raises eyebrow:: This might be too good to be true. At least nobody can claim that I wasn’t cautious.

UPDATE: Nevermind, if you take out his middle name, a lot more search results pop up. The video appears to be authentic.
Shit, why didn’t I see this when it first came out?
