Unfortunately, Koch-Walker has all the bases covered with his electronic vote hackers.

Dubya and his goons knew what they were doing when they used the 2000 fracas as a pretext to push electronic, easily-hacked voting nationwide.

Their only disappointment must be that it's not, in fact, nationwide. But in states like Wisconsin and Ohio, forget it; elections there are like Paraguay's - except without the AK-47 wielding thugs at the precinct doors (and they're working on that too).

That said, Yankovich could still pull this off - if someone keeps their eye on those voting tabulation programs.

It meant he worked with both parties in providing briefings, analysis, answering inqueries, etc on issues that involved his area of expertise
Anyone who works US intelligence would be required to support to and provide work for a multiple of congressional committees and government agencies
