Voting a la Venezuela

The old joke about what communists think of democracy is "one man, one vote, one time."

Maybe they're working on a new line -- one man, approximately one vote, maybe.

The federal government is investigating the takeover last year of a leading American manufacturer of electronic voting systems by a small software company that has been linked to the leftist Venezuelan government of President Hugo Chávez.

Coming soon to a vote counting place near you?
