. . . I was wondering why anonymous and/or lulzsec hadn’t targeted e-voting systems. They seem like a prime, low-hanging fruit in their campaign of nihilism. Apparently someone associated with them in the past thought the same and hacked into the Florida Voting systems database.

For the second time in his presidency George Bush has had to provide an ”œeconomic stimulus” to the failing economy. When will these clowns get it?
