My take is that this is not good for the VVPAT movement. Shelley
originally was for rapid deployment of touchscreens but got religion
during the diebold fiascos. My feeling was he strongly support
commissions that revealed the flagrant design flaws that showed these
systems were not ready for market. His insistence of protective
measures irked clerks and while I dont know what he is accused of, I
dont doubt the touchscreen issue is what brought additional enemies out
of the woodwork.

I hope his replacement has the courage to withstand the ire of the
clerks on this subject.
