US voting server in election security probe is mysteriously wiped



You talk like there were only two options - The Corporate Hawk or the Blowhard.

There weren't.

How many people voted for one 'cos the other was beyond the pale?

One is a professional politician and the corporate candidate, and the other is a businessman with a string of bankruptcies behind him, and and a disgusting human being to boot.

Good luck with that.
