Trump could steal the election by running out the clock w/ bogus mail ballot challenges based on signature the match reqmt, etc. & then:
(1) having GOP state lawmakers circumvent voters by casting their electoral votes 4 him; or
(2) using the 12th A to have House Rs decide.

Re: 12th A: "[M]ailed and absentee ballots are easily challenged in a recount, & recounts can be delayed long enough to kick the election to the House of Representatives — where the vote is by state DELEGATION, not each representative..." by @jedshug

David Becker is so thin skinned that he hid (from his own TL) @sarahkendzior’s & @PattyArquette’s replies to his defamatory tweet in which he falsely called me a “probable Russian asset.” He hid a lot of replies actually. 1/
Thread with sources including the video that got Becker so mad. The video includes an expert & an NBC report debunking faulty testimony about voting machine security. Becker is mad bc I included his own faulty testimony in the video. 2/ threadreaderapp.com/thread/1304968…
The American public was misled by Becker and others in 2016 about the security of our election system. If Trump is declared victorious again under similarly suspicious circumstances, we cannot afford to be gaslit by Becker & others a second time. 3/

Dear @MNSecofState: Pls remove the cellular modems that ES&S put in MN’s precinct ballot scanners. Due to these modems, the scanners AND county central tabulators connect to the internet. ES&S lied when it said they were EAC certified. TY. #RemoveTheModems

Structurally speaking, there is still one thing that can & should be done to safeguard the election: officials must remove the cellular modems that were installed in precinct ballot scanners in FL, MI, WI, &IL- @jennycohn1 on ⁦@gaslitnation⁩ 1/ patreon.com/posts/how-to-h…
But it is hard to gain the traction needed to persuade officials to do the right thing bc too many people consider it taboo to discuss election vulnerabilities. Cellular modems are a glaring example of such a vulnerability bc they connect the machines to the internet. 2/
The cellular modems must be removed from our voting equipment b4 November. These are key swing states that have them (FL, WI, MI). Pls pass it on. Thank you to @sarahkendzior & @AndreaChalupa for having me on @gaslitnation to discuss this and related concerns. #RemoveTheModems 3/

Mark Zuckerberg has given $50M to David Becker, who spread the myth that it wld be almost impossible 4 hackers to change the outcome of a national election bc voting machines supposedly never connect to the internet. This myth has been debunked by experts. cnn.com/2020/09/01/bus…
Becker works for the Georgia Secretary of State.

If u vote in person, ask to vote w/ a ballpoint pen. If u must use a touchscreen (early voting often uses them), compare ur completed sample ballot 2 the machine-marked printout to verify that down ballot races weren’t deleted or changed. - @jennycohn1 1/ soundcloud.com/onwurd/reality…

Just two voting machine vendors, ES&S and Dominion Voting, account for more than 80% of US election equipment. Thus, if corrupt insiders or hackers infiltrated either vendor, they could wreak havoc on elections throughout the US. 1/
Until 2010, America's 2 largest vendors were ES&S & Diebold Election Systems. Diebold was called Global until ATM mftr. Diebold, Inc. acquired it in 02. Global's senior VP & largest shareholder was a convicted embezzler whose crimes involved sophisticated computer tampering. 2/
The embezzler at Diebold was discovered & "outed" not by election officials, but rather by election-security advocate and Black Box Voting author @BevHarrisWrites. According to the Guardian, the embezzler programmed 1/3 of the machines used to count votes in 37 states in 04. 3/

Dear election officials in MI, WI, FL, & IL. Your precinct ballot scanners are NOT FEDERALLY CERTIFIED bc they contain cellular modems that connect 2 the INTERNET. Pls confirm u will remove the modems b4 November. TY. #RemoveTheModems @JocelynBenson @WI_Elections @FLSecofState 1/
These ES&S ballot scanners with modems installed are not even federally certified to @EACgov’s ludicrously lax standards. It is the definition of insanity that election officials in MI, WI, FL, & IL plan to use this equipment in a presidential election. #RemoveTheModems 2/
As noted, these modems connect the ballot scanners to the internet. Election officials must remove them now. #RemoveTheModems 3/

😳First, vendors exposed county central tabulators—which aggregate precinct totals—to internet hacking on election night by installing remote access software.

Now, they expose them to internet hacking on election night by setting them up to receive vote totals wirelessly. 1/

Apparently Trump is more comfortable with internet-connected precinct equipment than with vote by mail. I wonder why... 1/
I am referring to ES&S precinct ballot scanners and receiving-end systems in Florida, Wisconsin, & Michigan (& elsewhere), which contain cellular modems that connect to the internet. #RemoveTheModems 2/
I’m also referring to the seismic shift in recent years to e-pollbooks throughout the US, many of which connect to WiFi & which are now being used (bizarrely) to encode activation cards that activate controversial new touchscreen voting machines (ballot marking devices). 3/
