The Hill & Smartmatic, part II

London 19.10.2012 - Fortunately The Hill is open to dissenting views. Here's my riposte to Smartmatic CEO's bullshit op-ed about Venezuelan electoral transparency. And here's a bit of a backgrounder, for context, so everyone can share a laugh at Mugica's preposterous claims. He can claim all right that his company is efficient -at ensuring electoral victories for his paymasters; he can claim all right that his company has won juicy contracts in the developing world; he can claim all right that his company has developed the ultimately, untested and unaudited electoral technology. But transparent? After running away from a CFIUS investigation? The perfect partner for fair elections, based on its deeply flawed record in Venezuela, Bolivia, Mexico, and the Philippines? He has got to have lost the plot.
