Vern Says Enough is Enough

January 2nd, 2007 by Mike Vasilinda

Newly elected 13th Congressman Vern Buchanan was at the state capitol today for the Governors Inauguration. Buchanan won his seat by fewer than 400 votes and then won again in court when challenger Christine Jennings contested the election, which is now under appeal. Buchanan says he will look to sponsor national voting legislation to make sure the same thing hes gone through doesnt happen to someone else.

I think we have to look into all the systems. If theres any questions, people have to have complete and total confidence in the system. Theres no question. said Buchanan, who was asked So, as the poster child for electronic voting reform, will you be trying to sponsor anything?

Were gonna seriously look at whats out there and see if we can sponsor it. At the same token, we dont want to have people other people like myself, have to go through this where youve had three different votes, machines checked four times a judge throws out and they keep suing. Thats gotta end. Buchanan concluded.

Ironically, voters in Sarasota County voted to stop using touch screen machines because they feared problems could arise…which they did, losing more than 18 thousand votes.
