Diebold Election Systems pays $48 million to settle bribery case


The North Canton, Ohio, company was accused by the Securities and Exchange Commission and the Justice Department of spending about $1.8 million to send the foreign bank officials on vacations to the United States and Europe and provide entertainment and gifts in violation of a federal law that prohibits U.S. companies from bribing foreign government officials.

The company was also accused of giving annual cash gifts ranging from $100 to more than $600 to foreign bank executives.

Diebold falsely recorded the bribes in its books as training expenses, the SEC alleged.

Awesome, these are the people who make our voting machines.

Yeah, I'm sure Bev Harris is rolling her eyes at the SEC and JD for ignoring the fat that multiple problems have occured in the use of their voting systems. If only they'd look into the entire electioneering debacle alot of the politicians in office now would be out on the streets scattering for cover like the rats they are.
