If I'm being dishonest I came to that position by honest means; reading and relying on original sources such as IVRC contract documents, President Obama's Commission on Election Administration, federal statutes and this report by the Virginia State Board of Elections. www.google.com
I provide that report because Palast seems, I say seems because he rambles all over the place, to focus on 41,000 voters stricken in that state. The report refers to a little over 41,000. It then describes how those matches were arrived at, first and last name, dob and last four of ssn. It describes how a far greater pool of raw data from various sources was parsed, how NVRA requirements were fulfilled and, most importantly, how many voters were actually removed from the voter list when and why. For example, about 3000 were identified as deceased.
So, again, you keep on believing Palast and conspiracy theories proffered by an agenda driven flamethrower and I'll continue reading and believing original sources.

The Commission endorses state programs to share data and to collaborate in the synchronization of voter lists so that the states, on their own initiative, come as close as possible to creating an accurate database of the eligible electorate.
"The IVRC uses a secure FTP site, deletes all participating states' data after running the crosscheck, and compares only certain data types (e.g., name, date of birth, address and Social Security number) (emphasis mine)."
So, the entire database it collects is checked against a specific set of parameters and then deleted. This process cannot be repeated or verified why?
