hacking - hacktivism?

Rumours and more tangible proofs have started to emerge from the past two years about the 2004 American elections of George Bush. If they ever are right, not only it raises serious questions of legitimacy of the current president, but it asks an even more troubling question: who did hack in the machines for e-voting? The political motive seems at the forefront, and it is pretty scary to think about who could have ordered the hack. Hactivism?

As scary as above is the mistaken belief that e-voting continues to be safe. See the interesting comparison with e-banking made by Timothy Lee on TechDirt (17 March 2008)
