No bid contracts? No contracts? Request for Quotes? How does ES&S get paid to run our elections with their equipment? Where is the trail of usual (even unusual) payments we should be able to follow? Or is it a trail of tears? Whatever it is, it’s messy. Let us know if this helps you understand who is controlling our voting.
Remember when we went started looking into Jason Gant’s special PAC financiers and found GOVERNMENT SYSTEMS, SOFTWARE AND SERVICES INC. (we’ll call it GSS&S for short) Well, we finally located data with the ES&S connection as in GSS&S is a Nebraska corporate shell.
You will notice the only difference between the two companies is their ‘Nature of Business’. It seems GSS&S is setup to do the sales and marketing for ES&S. But other then that, they reside in the same office and have the same corporate officers (you will see them listed on the PDFs below).
• Without much notice even by Google, we have GSS&S appearing. Was it setup just to sell to ES&S products undercover to South Dakota or just give campaign donations to Gant’s PAC?
• Why can’t we find any contracts for the services of GSS&S or ES&S? (go for it, do a search)
The only thing we find is the contribution. By the way, view this corporationWIKI page and the read the WIKI for a summary of ES&S and their past(?) ownership of Diebold / Premiere. According to California and Florida SOS as of 6/15/2012, ES&S still owns or controls most voting systems in the world despite a ‘sale’ of certain intellectual properties in 2010 to Dominion Voting Systems. What does this little information do to election results of 2012 for everyone?
Pretty scary, Huh?
