Dear @senatemajldr: Throwing wads of $$$ at opaque & corrupt voting-system vendors that donated to your campaign does NOT constitute meaningful election-security reform. Thread. cc: @SenSchumer @SenatorLeahy @ChrisCoons 1/
Election-security funding must be tied to election-security requirements (or it isn’t really election security funding):

HAND MARKED paper ballots 4 most voters

ROBUST manual audits

A ban on internet connectivity & remote access

Backup paper voter lists at polling places. 2/

This is a major victory bc it means we are successfully exposing the recklessness of rejecting #HandmarkedPaperBallots in favor of machine-marked summary cards from vendors’ insecure “universal use” barcode ballot marking devices & hybrids, which the #SAFEAct would ban. 1/
It also shows that we have successfully exposed as unacceptable ES&S’s installation of wireless modems in election equipment, which it began doing in 2015. This too would be banned under the #SAFEAct. 2/
Yes, I get that McConnell may not bring it to the floor. But we would be negligent to not even try. So we will try & in doing so educate a TON of people—include decision makers at the state and county level—about the election-security best practices embodied in the Act. 3/

Our leaders must do more than say “PAVEAct.” They must explain what it would do & why it matters so that (a) even Republican voters question why Mitch won’t put it up for a vote; & (b) voters know what to demand from local officials too. @GeorgeLakoff 1/
2/ Our leaders need training in negotiations it seems. You can’t create pressure or change w/o leaders providing a little bit of detail as to what is wrong and what is needed.

Democrats should publicly SHAME Republicans for wanting to keep remote access and wireless modems in election equipment. Everyone should be able to understand why this is outrageous. Why won’t Democrats even try to shame them on this?! 3/
