Walden O'Dell: Committed to Delivering Republican Victory, No Matter the Actual Results

Diebold, of North Canton, Ohio, said its optical scanners have proved reliable over years of use.
"I think they're rushing to judgment," spokesman David Bear said of the recount advocates.

Diebold has suffered a storm of criticism over its newer touch-screen voting machines, however.
Last week, it settled a lawsuit by California over problems with the electronic machines, and voting rights advocates have complained the touch-screen systems lack paper back-ups.

Walden O'Dell, Diebold's chairman and chief executive, also raised thousands of dollars for the Bush campaign, and said in a fund-raising letter for the Ohio Republican Party that he was "committed to helping Ohio deliver its electoral votes" to Bush.
