IIRC this came out post-9/11 \ pre-war so, 2002-2003. And he’s still alive. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Clint_Curtis
Other sysadmins haven’t been so lucky
There is also a good documentary about vote rigging from 2006 called hacking democracy.
Interesting are also the inteviews of computer security expert Stephen Spoonamore. Apart from providing the technical background how the vote rigging functions, Spoonamore named also Michael Connell as a facilitator for the voting fraud.
Connell was served with a subpoena in the King Lincoln Bronzeville v. Blackwell case, but before Connell could testify, he died in a plane crash. Shortly before Connell’s death, attorney Cliff Arnebeck was informed, that Connell’s life was in danger. Arnebeck did also sent a letter to U.S. Attorney General Michael Mukasey and requested protection for Connell, but this was never provided.
A good example of totally impeccable research into election fraud is the work of Bob Fitrakis, the investigative journalist from Ohio who edits freepress.org. He most comprehensively investigated the fraud in Ohio in 2004 that led to the reelection of Bush. One of his books was intentionally fashioned to be heavy and large like a phone book so that when they were challenged before congress or wherever about whether there was any evidence of fraud, they could slam the book down on the table. In fact, Fitrakis says that before his death, Kurt Vonnegut was going around to public libraries and telling them to order the book. Vonnegut’s own way of saying “this can’t be reposted enough.”
Election Systems and Software Corporation was sued for antitrust violations in 2010 after it bought Diebold. They had a monopoly on all voting machines and software.
Up until his run for office, the CEO of this company was current defense secretary Chuck Hagel
