The original analysis was based on South Carolina. Votes there were counted by Spain-based Scytl, who acquired technology from Diebold. There is even a source forge project that helps organize the data. Slashdot has talked about the possibility of this happening before. Link to Original Source

you looked at it in the right way, did not become still more complicated.
