He didn't claim that it was definitely implemented. He just said that
he was hired to produce software that performed the above task, and that
he was hired by people who were in some position to get it onto the
voting machines. That's about it. There is coroborating evidence of
the connections that he suggested. Considering that I think that it all
should be available to the public anyway, I see no reason why this isn't
adequate justification to audit the code on the Florida machines.
