...and that's the point! If it takes longer than 4 years to hack, it's effectively secure for a US Presidential election. By then, the elected official's term will be up, and there will be another election (with different encryption keys) so you will have to start over.

Except that he's *NOT* in jail.... He's under HOUSE ARREST. I think he should be in jail. Certainly, he didn't actually physically walk to the banks and cram cash into large cloth bags with a giant dollar sign on them... He probably did all of this banking over the phone. He could still do more damage from his house. He should be chained to a metal chair in a damp basement with a single incandescent bulb hanging from the ceiling. Instead, he's probably watching HBO in his living room eating caviar.
