Electronic Voting Machines Vulnerable To Foreign Influence?

Could it be that those evil Venezuelans are trying to screw with our electronic voting machines, the same machines that we use to elect our fine leaders? That's what U.S. federal investigators are trying to determine after learning that company that makes the software running the electronic voting machines are from Venezuela. No conclusions yet, but it's pretty responsible to assume the worst in situations like this. Naturally, that means there's evil afoot.

This is just another bullet point in the long list of potential problems to be had in using electronic voting machines, at least where the source code of the machine isn't made available to the public. Why, it was just last month we showed you how to steal an election using the popular Diebold electronic voting machine. Now those dastardly South Americans are trying to interrupt our civic duties... the nerve of them.
