We’re never gonna get legitimate, political computerized voting off the ground.

Today’s latest story proves that, given that an online vote to choose Washington’s state quarter design was besieged by ballot-stuffing computers.

“We hadn’t counted on, I guess, the over-enthusiasm of people,” said State Quarter Advisory Commission spokesman Mark Gerth. That’s a job? We want that one.

Anyway, Mark, we don’t think it was necessarily “enthusiasm” that prompted this – try “mischief.”
