On December 6, 2019, leading congressional Democrats wrote three private equity companies seeking information on their interests in “secretive and “trouble-plagued companies,” responsible for manufacturing and maintaining voting machines and other election administration equipment, that “have long skimped on security in favor of convenience,” leaving voting systems across the country “prone to security problems. Named in the letters were ES&S, Hart InterCivic, and Dominion Voting Systems, which the letter said provide voting machines and software that “facilitate voting for over 90% of all eligible voters in the United States.”
The letters of inquiry were signed by Senators Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), Amy Klobuchar (D-MN), Ron Wyden (D-OR), and US Representative Mark Pocan (D-WI), none of which are currently supporting the investigations into Dominion Voting Systems. The letter states: “In 2015, election officials in at least 31 states, representing approximately 40 million registered voters, reported that their voting machines needed to be updated, with almost every state “using some machines that are no longer manufactured.” Moreover, even when state and local officials work on replacing antiquated machines, many continue to “run on old software that will soon be outdated and more vulnerable to hackers.”
“In 2018 alone “voters in South Carolina [were] reporting machines that switched their votes after they’d inputted them, scanners [were] rejecting paper ballots in Missouri, and busted machines [were] causing long lines in Indiana.” In addition, researchers recently uncovered previously undisclosed vulnerabilities in “nearly three dozen backend election systems in 10 states.” And, just this year, after the Democratic candidate’s electronic tally showed he received an improbable 164 votes out of 55,000 cast in a Pennsylvania state judicial election in 2019, the county’s Republican Chairwoman said, “[n]othing went right on Election Day. Everything went wrong. That’s a problem.” These problems threaten the integrity of our elections and demonstrate the importance of election systems that are strong, durable, and not vulnerable to attack.”
Today, Democratic leaders are silent about Dominion Voting Systems, which is demonstrating the very same issues raised in the letters. If these voting systems were a threat to the integrity of US elections in 2019, they are no less a threat today. For the good of our nation, Democrats and Republicans alike should demand election integrity and work together to get to the bottom of this election’s fraud. But that will not happen because political power and the riches that accompany it await the victor. This is like the Biblical dispute between two women who claimed the same baby. In 1 Kings 3 King Solomon was to divide the baby in half with a sword. The true mother said allow the child to live and in verse 26, the other mother said, “Let it be neither mine or hers, but divide it.” And hence, you see which is determined to destroy a nation.
