Voting Machine Owner Committed To Give Votes To Bush By Julie Carr Smyth Cleveland Plain Dealer Bureau 8-30-03

コロンバス - オハイオ州で投票機を販売することを争う会社の頭は彼があることを、最近の資金調達の手紙の中で共和党に次のように語った。

 Columbus - The head of a company vying to sell voting machines in Ohio told Republicans in a recent fund-raising letter that he is:


 "committed to helping Ohio deliver its electoral votes to the president next year."

ウォールデンオデル、ディーボルド社の最高経営責任者(CEO)から8月14日の手紙 - ブッシュ大統領の再選の努力に積極的になっている - に票を計算することができオデルの会社の適正を疑問視する今週の民主党を促した2004年の大統領選挙。

 The Aug. 14 letter from Walden O'Dell, chief executive of Diebold Inc. - who has become active in the re-election effort of President Bush - prompted Democrats this week to question the propriety of allowing O'Dell's company to calculate votes in the 2004 presidential election.

レンジャーズとパイオニアとして知られている - - 大統領のテキサス州クロフォード牧場で今月初めオデルは、POW-WOW裕福ブッシュ恩人との戦略に出席した。アッパーアーリントンのコロンバス郊外の彼の邸宅で - 部分的にブッシュに恩恵をもたらす - 来週、彼はオハイオ州共和党の連邦選挙資金の利益のために千ドル-プレート資金調達者への招待状を書いた。

 O'Dell attended a strategy pow-wow with wealthy Bush benefactors - known as Rangers and Pioneers - at the president's Crawford, Texas, ranch earlier this month.The next week, he penned invitations to a $1,000-a-plate fund-raiser to benefit the Ohio Republican Party's federal campaign fund - partially benefiting Bush - at his mansion in the Columbus suburb of Upper Arlington.


 The letter went out the day before Ohio Secretary of State Ken Blackwell, also a Republican, was set to qualify Diebold as one of three firms eligible to sell upgraded electronic voting machines to Ohio counties in time for the 2004 election.


 Blackwell's announcement is still in limbo because of a court challenge over the fairness of the selection process by a disqualified bidder, Sequoia Voting Systems.

戻ってくる可能性が充電立法民主党指導者たちはブラックウェルの利益のためにそのお金 - 彼の招待状では、オデルは、寄付や状態GOPはブッシュ大統領と他の連邦候補者を支援するために使用する連邦政府のアカウントの万ドル、それぞれ最大引き上げを検討するゲストを尋ねた。

 In his invitation letter, O'Dell asked guests to consider donating or raising up to $10,000 each for the federal account that the state GOP will use to help Bush and other federal candidates - money that legislative Democratic leaders charged could come back to benefit Blackwell.


 They urged Blackwell to remove Diebold from the field of voting-machine companies eligible to sell to Ohio counties.


 This is the second such request in as many months.State Sen. Jeff Jacobson, a Dayton-area Republican, asked Blackwell in July to disqualify Diebold after security concerns arose over its equipment.

「普通Ohioansはその最高経営責任者(CEO)はブラックウェルのパーティーのために万ドルの寄付を求めているので、ブラックウェルのオフィスがディーボルドのセキュリティ上の問題を越えて見ていると推論すること - 同じ部屋で右が州全体の選出議員で作ることができた寄付を、」上院民主党は言った

 "Ordinary Ohioans may infer that Blackwell's office is looking past Diebold's security issues because its CEO is seeking $10,000 donations for Blackwell's party - donations that could be made with statewide elected officials right there in the same room," said Senate Democratic

個人的にコメントすることに利用できなかった - - コロンバス動物園、オペアンプ時代コロンバス、カトリック社会サービス、オハイオ州立大学を含む多くの原因が、彼の自宅で資金調達者を開催していディーボルドの広報担当者ミシェルGriggyはオデルは言った。

 Diebold spokeswoman Michelle Griggy said O'Dell - who was unavailable to comment personally - has held fund-raisers in his home for many causes, including the Columbus Zoo, Op era Columbus, Catholic Social Services and Ohio State University.


 Ohio GOP spokesman Jason Mauk said the party approached O'Dell about hosting the event at his home, the historic Cotswold Manor, and not the other way around.Mauk said that under federal campaign finance rules, the party cannot use any money from its federal account for state- level candidates.


 "To think that Diebold is somehow tainted because they have a couple folks on their board who support the president is just unfair," Mauk said.

Griggyはディーボルドは、個々の会社の従業員の政治献金についてはコメントできないと電子メールの声明で述べている。ブラックウェルはディーボルドは政治的な接続を持つ唯一の会社ではないと述べた - 投票機メーカーのためのロビイストは、誰のためです誰のように読めることは注目にコロンブスの強力かつ政治的に接続されている。

 Griggy said in an e-mail statement that Diebold could not comment on the political contributions of individual company employees.Blackwell said Diebold is not the only company with political connections - noting that lobbyists for voting-machine makers read like a who's who of Columbus' powerful and politically connected.

「私はあなたにこの方法をそれを置くましょう:一意に政治プロセスに関与する1人があった場合、それは厄介かもしれない "と彼は言った。「しかし、彼らは合法的に彼らの製品が見取得するために使用できることをレバレッジのすべての合法的な道とビットを使用していない、誰はありません。引かれるべき政治的レバーがある場合は、私を信じて、それらのすべてがそれを引っ張ってきた。」

 "Let me put it to you this way: If there was one person uniquely involved in the political process, that might be troubling," he said."But there's no one that hasn't used every legitimate avenue and bit of leverage that they could legally use to get their product looked at. Believe me, if there is a political lever to be pulled, all of them have pulled it."


 Blackwell said he stands by the process used for selecting voting machine vendors as fair, thorough and impartial.


 As of yesterday, however, that determination lay with Ohio Court of Claims Judge Fred Shoemaker.


 He heard closing arguments yesterday over whether Sequoia was unfairly eliminated by Blackwell midway through the final phase of negotiations.Shoemaker extended a temporary restraining order in the case for 14 days, but said he hopes to issue his opinion sooner than that.
