Some hackers just want to watch the election burn

from here

Y'know, it never occurred to me that you could hack an election with a pen and some paper. That is an impressive display of thinking outside the box. It seems the pen is mightier than the code (or at least it can be if you don't sanitize your inputs).

That being said, can you imagine the problems it would have caused if the SQL injection against a live election had worked? Holy cow, someone was playing a very risky game.
