This is, in effect, the constitutional argument @protctdemocracy is making in litigation challenging South Carolina’s system. bit.ly/2xiPXxw 5/
The court also rebuked GA officials -- including Brian Kemp -- for burying “their heads in the sand.” 6/
It said that Defendants will fail to address the reality of persistent cyber-threats “if they demean as paranoia the research-based findings of national cyber-security engineers and experts in the field of elections.” 7/
