    Official notice of public hearing for ES&S Automarks, Sept. 20, 07 :
    www.SoS.Ca.gov/elections/voting_systems/ess_automark_public_hearing_notice_080907.pdf

    "Not only did ES&S sell machines to California counties that weren’t state certified, it’s clear the machines weren’t even federally certified when the company delivered them to California ... While ES&S may not like California law, I expect the company to follow the law and not trample over it by selling uncertified voting equipment in this state. ... “If ES&S has broken the law and misled counties into buying nearly 1,000 uncertified machines, I intend to go after the company for the full $9.72 million in penalties allowable by law, along with the original $5 million the company took from counties’ pockets, "

    - Secretary Bowen as cited in a press release, 8/07
