 In the years since the rigged 2004 election, we’ve learned a lot more about Diebold’s ethics. There are pages and pages of documents that show a wide range of problems with machines. There is a good deal of evidence showing that DBD often does not follow local, state or U.S. law, when installing or servicing its voting machines. Charges of fraud, vote rigging and breach of election law have been lodged against DBD, in a number of states. Yet nearly all US election districts still use DBD machines.

No Brasil eles fornecem 100% das urnas, mas ainda bem que o TSE garante que no Brasil eles são totalmente honestos, acoberta todos os problemas que ocorrem (como em 2006 e 2008) e faz mais e mais aditivos para comprar mais urnas sem concorrência....

O eleitor brasileiro não pode!No Brasil, o voto é secreto até para o próprio eleitor.

Eu sei em quem votei. Eles Também.
Mas só eles sabem quem recebeu meu voto

On October 22, 2013 US prosecutors filed criminal charges against Diebold Inc. Diebold (DBD) is best known for the major role that its electronic voting machines play in US elections. As part of a deferred prosecution agreement, DBD will pay $50 million dollars to the SEC and US Department of Justice (DOJ), to settle two separate cases. The DOJ criminal charges were filed in Canton, Ohio.

Civil charges were also filed by the SEC in Washington DC.  The charges include bribing officials and falsifying records. The case deals with DBD corruption in China, Russia and Indonesia, from 2005 to 2010. As part of the deal, DBD must also set up and keep a system of strict internal controls. A federal monitor will oversee the company for no less than 18 months.

 Criminal charges in 2010

This is not the first time that DBD has faced criminal charges. In 2010, the SEC charged the company and three of its former executives, with accounting fraud. According to Robert Khuzami, Director of the SEC’s Division of Enforcement, DBD’s top executives “borrowed from many different chapters of the deceptive accounting playbook.” The illegal accounting practices let DBD deceive investors and shareholders in regards to its earnings. The SEC said profits were overstated by at least $127 million dollars. The 2010 charges were resolved when the company agreed to pay a $25 million fine, as part of a deal with the SEC.
