Description

The failure of the punch cards in Florida has the voting machine industry ramped up to get a hold of any new voting machine business that may ride on the tails of the $3 billion subsidies under consideration by Congress. The Shoups, formerly the "first family of voting" and makers of the "U.S. Standard Voting Machine" are getting back into the business. Shoup senior is actually a convicted felon, and was fined and served a suspended sentence for offering to cast a better light on city commissioner Marge Tartaglione if she would give him the city's voting-machine repair business.
