Ohio Sec of State @FrankLaRose also hired infamous Council for National Policy member Ken Blackwell to lead his transition team. Blackwell was Ohio Sec of State in 04 when he hired Paul Manafort’s partners to re-route election totals to a Republican owned backup server in TN. 1/
3/ CNP directory listing Ken Blackwell: splcenter.org/sites/default/…
4/ My heavily sourced Council for National Policy Article: #TheFamily
13/ John Kerry’s own campaign suspected electronic vote tally manipulation during the 2004 election.
25/ More on Blackwell’s conduct during the 2004 election:
28/ The CNP—to which Ken Blackwell, KellyAnne Conway, R. DeVos, Bannon, Pence, & the Mercers belong—has ties to:

* Voting machine vendor ES&S
* Cambridge Analytica
* Massive voter data leaks
* The NRA
* Russia
* Convicted felons (embezzlement, bribery)
29/ Btw, the 2004 recount in Ohio was corrupted. link.medium.com/bTgHry41zZ
31/ BTW, Blackwell followed me a while back. So I followed him back. I won’t be intimidated.
32/ We did not come to resemble Russia overnight. cbsnews.com/news/republica…
34/ Meanwhile, Blackwell’s minion, @FrankLaRose, ensured that Ohio counties could replace terrible old touchscreen voting machines w/ terrible new Ballot Marking Devices that put votes into barcodes.
35/ The number one vendor of these systems is ES&S.
36/ .@LuluFriesdat and I tried to stop it. It didn’t work. Thread.
38/ Note also that Ohio had remote access software installed in central tabulators in 2004 - per the House Judiciary investigation!
42/ ES&S gets away with this crap with carefully worded misleading statements (and as shown above outright lies).
43/ ES&S lied not only about remote access software, but also about its election-management systems connecting to the internet.
44/ And ES&S is now defrauding the public by changing the meaning of “paper ballot” to include not only unhackable #HandMarked paper ballots, but also hackable #MachineMarkef summary cards with BARCODES from insecure electronic Ballot Marking Devices.
46/ And corrupt/inept election officials throughout the US are actively assisting ES&S in this fraud on the public by buying these dangerous new barcode Ballot Marking Devices for 2020.
49/ The #SAFEAct would ban barcode voting, DRE (mostly touchscreen) voting machines, remote access, and internet connectivity.
50/ Unfortunately, @amyklobuchar is still trying to resurrect the “bipartisan” Secure Elections Act—that would do NONE of these things. It would not even require Risk Limiting Audits. Republicans for the Rule of Law are pushing this pretend election-security bill as well.
51/ IMHO, the crap Secure Elections Act will likely pass, and most of the public will have no idea that the bill is crap and that the barcoded so-called “paper ballot” systems that it will help fund are dangerous.
52/ If we are to stop this train wreck, we must pressure @AmyKlobuchar to NOT do this. We must tell her again and again that we want the terms of the #SAFEAct—not the bogus Secure Elections Act.
53/ We must call @amyklobuchar’s office en masse and tell her we want unhackable #HandMarked paper ballots, not the hackable #MachineMarked barcoded crap that ES&S and Klobuchar herself misleadingly call “paper ballots” (or “backup paper ballots”). Thanks.
54/ We cannot afford to dance with the Devil.
55/ And @AmyKlobuchar IS about to do just that with the crap Secure Elections Act bipartisan PRETEND “election security” bill. From 8/2/19 thehill.com/policy/nationa…
56/ Langford and @amyklobuchar “are looking to reintroduce the [crap] bill this Congress, and according to Lankford are only working out ‘verbs, nouns, and adjectives’ before putting it out.”
57/ “While McConnell has not yet been asked to support the [pretend security] bill, Lankford said that last year the majority leader was not opposed to the ‘concept’” & that Lankford “has been receiving ‘technical assistance’ from the White House on the bill’s new language.”
58/ THIS is the terrible deal Klobuchar is about to make. ⬇️
59/ Pls reply ✅ if you make the call. Thank you. #ProtectOurVotes
