Wyden: Paper ballots are coming [View all]

You might recognize the above image as a popular format tweet, someone peeking around a building to deliver a message, in this instance, ďPaper ballots are coming.Ē Ordinarily, one would not give this a second thought.

But this was posted by RON FREAKING WYDEN, who sits on the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, and is in a position to know stuff he canít talk about. But he can hint.

Oregon is already vote-by-mail, so we know heís not talking about his home state. We are left to speculate about his meaning, but the implication seems to be this is wider. Make of this what you will. Here is my take:

I think he must be saying touchscreen and other electronic voting equipment will be shown to have been compromised and unreliable in past elections. Itís already been shown to be vulnerable; he is hinting at something explosive that will render these machines undesirable for future elections, necessitating a voter-verified paper trail and/or something that can be recounted.
