I was puzzled by this statement as well but not enough to go investigating.
As it so happened I ran across some sources for this [1,2] and it would
appear there is some merit to the argument.
It is interesting that this is getting to the level of discussion that there
is speculation (fact?) that computerized voting machines are being "rigged"
to allow back door tampering . After all we *know* that software which
is supposed to be secure is never faulty.
When I, who probably reads more news than the average person, isn't aware of
this I would suspect is a problem which the general public is clueless about
Kudos to Samantha for pointing this out.
4. One does of course have to be careful that the primary source is a
prominent Democrat. It remains to be seen whether anyone (TV news channel,
the Washington Post, etc.) will be diligent enough to verify the accuracy of
an article citing 208 references and determine whether it is "biased". But
the fact that the references are cited does make a reasonably strong case.
There is also the three books cited in  which make this appear that it is
a reasonably well researched topic.
