Remember when the US Computer Emergency Readiness Team admitted that the Diebold GEMS central tabulator used in 37 states in 2004 had “an undocumented backdoor account, which could [allow] a local or remote authenticated user [to] modify votes”? 1/ nybooks.com/daily/2018/11/…
And then it turned out that the Diebold GEMS central tabulator (that US CERT warned about) had been programmed by the company’s Senior VP who had previously served time on 37 counts of embezzlement involving sophisticated computer tampering? 2/ nybooks.com/contributors/j…
And then ES&S acquired Diebold and took over many of its contracts and donated $30,000 to the Republican State Leadership Committee whose mission is to elect Republicans to state office? nybooks.com/contributors/j… 3/
Remember when ES&S leaked 1.8 million Chicago voter records in 2015? money.cnn.com/2017/08/17/tec… 5/
Did you know that ES&S accounts for 44% of US election equipment? 6/ usatoday.com/story/money/20…
8/ Remember when ES&S admitted, after initial denials, that it has installed remote access software in election management systems (used to program voting machines & scanners & to aggregate precinct tallies) in 300 jurisdictions that it won’t identify? npr.org/2018/09/21/649…
Most people don’t know any of this stuff bc the media fell down on its job & continues to do so. As observed by @KeithOlbermann in 2004, they have apparently decided that “You can rock the boat, but you can never say that the entire ocean is in trouble.” 9/
