Playing Politics?

By  | 

A Colorado company contracted to certify the country's touch-screen voting machines is raising some eyebrows with their political donations.

Employees at Greenwood Village-based Ciber, Inc. have been found to have donated as much as $72 thousand to Republican candidates during the 2001-2002 and 2003-2004 campaigns. That's compared to $3 thousand in Democratic donations according to the Center for Responsive Politics.

The donations are not against the law but are causing some controversy in this year's tight Presidential race.

A company spokesman says the contributions do not affect their testing and certification procedures.
