Imagine if Putin’s IT guru routed Russia’s presidential election results thru a backup server in another country & the main server went down. Before that, Putin was about to lose. After, he won. And the guru died in a private plane crash after being subpoenaed to testify. 1/
2/ Would only a “tin foil” conspiracy theorist find that concerning? cbsnews.com/news/republica…
3/ Would it be irresponsible for the MSM to ignore it? Sourced thread.
5/ Sourced thread starting with McClatchy:
7/ A 2004 DHS cyber-alert about Global/Diebold's election management system central tabulators stated that "A vulnerability exists due to an undocumented backdoor account, which could allow local or remote authenticated malicious user to modify votes.” us-cert.gov/ncas/archives/…
8/ “In Ohio in 2004, for example, where John Kerry lost the presidential race following numerous election irregularities, Kerry’s team was denied access to the voting-machine software.” nytimes.com/2004/01/23/opi…
9/ How could they have done it? How about remote access to the centralized county tabulators? Cuz America’s partisan voting machine vendors (ES&S & Diebold) did that - they put remote access in the central tabulators. FFS. vice.com/en_us/article/…
10/ Moreover, it was a convicted embezzler (crimes involved sophisticated computer tampering) that programmed the GEMS Diebold CENTRAL TABULATOR counting 1/3 votes in 2004. theguardian.com/politics/2005/…
11/ That’s the tabulator that our own DHS said could be accessed remotely to alter votes.
12/ “A 2004 DHS cyber-alert about Global/Diebold's election management system central tabulators stated that "A vulnerability exists due to an undocumented backdoor account, which could allow local or remote authenticated malicious user to modify votes.”us-cert.gov/ncas/archives/…
13/ ES&S alone installed remote access software in 300 jurisdictions (after initially denying it did it at all). via @KimZetter
14/ In how many jurisdictions did Diebold put remote access software before being acquired by ES&S in 2009? Note that the man who founded ES&S with his brother was also president of Diebold for many years, including 2004.
15/ Good thing ES&S and Diebold accounted for “only” SEVENTY PERCENT of US election equipment (before ES&S acquired Diebold in 2009 & the DOJ forced Diebold to at least officially dissolve).
