Gore Vidal: Imperial America: Reflections on the United States: Pg 33-34 "The Privatizing of American Elections"

Long before Bev Harris and her current revelations of Black Box voting, there was a fascinating study called VOTESCAM, "The Stealing of America" written by two brothers, James M.. and Kenneth F. Collier, journalists who were interested in who actually counts the votes that we cast in a presidential year; other times as well. The Colliers quote Dr. Howard Strauss, who sounded the alarm on Dan Rather's CBS Evening News. Strauss, a Princeton computer science professor, warned:

"The Presidential election of 1992, without too much difficulty and with little chance of the felons getting caught, could be stolen by computers for one candidate or another. The candidate who can win by computer has worked far enough ahead to rig the election by getting his "consultants" to write the software that runs thousands of vote-counting computers from coast to coast. There are so many computers that use the same software now that a presidential election can be tampered with - in fact, may already be tampered with. Because of trade secrecy, nobody can be wiser."

In movie-land this is know as a high-concept-thriller plot line. Of course, if it is true...

It is true that in 1988, at the time of the New Hampshire primary (unexpectedly won by Bush Senior and lost by Senator Dole) an unofficial private corporation, News Election Services (NES), had actual physical control of the counting of the vote, we are told, and "it refuses to let the public know how it is done." The history of NES arouses suspicion. It was created in 1964 shortly after JFK's murder in order, according to the Colliers, to control "conspiracy theories" about Dallas, AP, UPI, CBS, NBC, ABC and CNN got "from Congress the exclusive franchise to count the vote in every state." Yet, magically, without a single actual vote counted, NES on election night proclaims the Presidency just minutes after the polls close while Voter Research and Surveys (VRS), used by a consortium of media that covers exit polls, proclaims the presidency even before the polls close. The Colliers note that in 1989 "the networks finally admitted that a consortium was formed in which ABC, NBC, CBS, and CNN would pool their 'resources' to conduct exit polls;" and VRS was born. Interestingly, VRS and NES 'both filter their numbers through the same mainframe computer located on New York City's 34th Street." When the Colliers tried to find out just how the polling was done, Warren Mitofsky, chief of the exit-polling division at CBS, stonewalled them with the mantra: "This is not a proper area of inquiry." They did discover that VRS uses a firm called Chilton Research of Radnor, Pennsylvania. When the Colliers applied for jobs as exit-pollsters "we were told that Chilton employs other sub-polling organizations in various states to do the actual hiring of field personnel." No further information was forthcoming. "Mitofsky, VRS and Chilton refuse to explain how they operate by claiming they are private groups and don't have to tell the American people a DAMN thing." Thus, we - and are - privatized.
