For starters, it was Jeb that prevented electronic voting machines from requiring paper backup. Not some little old lady in West Palm.

I'd like to see a citation for that assertion.

Counties had the option which election machines to purchase - I happened to be at the public hearings here in Dade where the Commission decided which ones to buy. They made those decisions years ago. None of the manufacturers of electronic voting equipment approached the state for certification of a "paper backup" machine until earlier this year.

I'm not aware of any action taken by the Governor's office to interfere with those local decisions. I'd be curious if you had a link.
