Votes Changed in FLA 2000 Vote?

This scandal and the potential for vote fraud in future elections through electronic hacking is a story that major media have shied away from. It is so outrageous that most people just don't want to believe that someone else would mess with an election...

But according to a Florida TV station:

There's new evidence that computer hackers could change election results without anyone knowing about it, WESH 2 News reported.

The supervisor of elections in Tallahassee tested voting machines several times over the last several months, and on Monday, his workers were able to hack into a voting machine and change the outcome. He said that same thing might have happened in Volusia County in 2000.
For a more academic report of potential vote fraud in the 2004 election see this study by a California PolyTechnic PhD.
