Today’s Mitch McConnell-endorsed “election security” appropriation is a scam. We needed #HandMarkedPaperBallots, Manual Audits, & a ban on internet connections. Instead, we got more CORRUPTION, which is the last thing we needed. The bill does NOT require election security! 1/
2/ Graphic by @likesMixedNuts
3/ The appropriation was voted out of Committee and will be presented to the full Senate in a week or a few weeks.
4/ Pls CALL @ChrisCoons, @SenSchumer, and @SenatorLeahy who were all fooled by Mitch McConnell into voting for giving more money to states to spend on whatever hackable, unauditable voting systems they want. Tell them to kill the bogus election-security funding bill. Pls reply ✅
5/ Here is a copy of the bill. It is short bc it does not require the states to do a damn thing to secure our elections. They can spend the money however they want. appropriations.senate.gov/imo/media/doc/…
8/ Democrats were already scammed with HAVA in 2002, which allocated billions of dollars for insecure unauditable voting machines from shady vendors. Are they too inept to learn from their own past mistakes?
9/ And the thing is, @SenSchumer knows better. He's been down this road before. He was on the side of security in the past. What happened to him?!
@SenSchumer 10/ THIS is what Congress's decision to allocate voting-system money with no cybersecurity standards has bought us: a piece of sh*t hackable voting system w/ unverifiable election outcomes & corrupt vendors buying their way into officials' pockets. Thread.
@SenSchumer 11/ Pls CALL Schumer, Coons, & Leahy, & demand they kill McConnell's SHAM election-security funding bill (which they endorsed) bc it includes NO ELECTION-SECURITY REQMTS. Pls reply done. ✅TY. #HandMarkedPaperBallots
