we reported on July 15, Ron Paul's supporters were concerned
that Diebold touch-screen voting machines were going to be
used in the Iowa Republican Straw Poll. Well, it turns out
the concerns about touch-screens were misplaced, as the GOP
chose paper-based Diebold optical-scan machines instead. But
their fears of Diebold may well have been justified as two
of their op-scan systems failed and delayed the reported results.
