As the 110th Congress settles into the Capitol building this month, one congressman won't be able to get too comfortable in his chair, with a controversy over the electronic voting machines that put him in office boiling down to a battle over the source code...

"The source code is available, yet there is no easy and ready way to get access to it or for someone to go in and look at the machine and challenge them," says Matt Zimmerman, staff attorney for the Electronic Frontier Foundation, which has joined Jennings in her dispute of the election through a separate lawsuit representing voters.
