(Patriot Insider) – A bunch of corrupt Democrats from both Pennsylvania and Arizona are now threatening to destroy expensive voting machines if a forensic audit happens, which could end up costing local taxpayers millions of dollars.
According to the Gateway Pundit, the destruction of these machines also goes against the EAC’s recommendations. When you get down to brass tacks, this is just a threat from county officials to try and stop a forensic audit of the election results from happening.
Do innocent people threaten to destroy evidence and machines in order to hide the truth? The answer is an obvious no.
“Maricopa County, Arizona and Fulton County Pennsylvania are both replacing Dominion voting equipment under the guise that “uncertified” third parties who were hired to audit the equipment broke the chain of custody,” the report said.
“This all started with a letter from Arizona Secretary of State Katie Hobbs to Maricopa County in which she claimed she would not certify the subpoenaed voting equipment after being returned from the audit,” the report added.
Here’s what Hobbs said in the letter.
“Unfortunately, after a loss of physical custody and control, no comprehensive methods exist to fully rehabilitate the compromised equipment or provide adequate assurance that they remain safe to use,” the letter read.
Right after this, the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors voted to have the equipment replaced at a $3,000,000 cost to the state’s taxpayers, due to the fact that the Secretary of State has refused to certify the machines for future elections.
“Following Hobbs lead, and almost as if on cue, Pennsylvania Acting Secretary of State Veronica Degraffenreid decertified voting equipment in Fulton County that had also undergone an audit by a (credentialed) private company,” GP reported.
However, it seems that the Democrat officials never bothered to consult with the EAC or their website as the “Chain of Custody Best Practices Guide” has a section dedicated specifically to their concerns,” the report went on to say.
“When you believe the chain of custody may have been broken, it is a best practice to assess the situation completely, gather the facts, and contact your attorneys, EAC labs, and your system manufacturer. A risk assessment should be performed to determine the extent of the potential harm based on your findings and final determination regarding how to proceed. After obtaining legal advice that it is safe to do so, wipe the device and reinstall the software and firmware from a trusted source,” they said.
The EAC recommends that after such an event takes place, when you think the chain of custody might have been broken, “…wipe the device and reinstall the software and firmware from a trusted source.”
You know what they don’t say? They don’t say you decertify the equipment and throw it away, replacing them with new machines.
“What’s more is the two companies Maricopa County hired to audit their voting equipment aren’t certified by the EAC to perform forensic audits. As The Gateway Pundit previously reported, the EAC doesn’t certify forensic auditors, and the ones they hired are not qualified in computer forensics as recommended by the EAC; furthermore, they literally work for the voting equipment companies,” the GP report said.
“Digital forensics require specialized skillsets, and the audit team should possess certifications or applicable work experience in this specialty. Industry standard certifications are offered by organizations such as the International Association of Computer Investigative Specialists (IACIS) or the Sans Institute,” the EAC says about forensic cybersecurity investigators.
What these people are trying to say is that they need to replace the machine because there is no reputable company that is acceptable for them to perform a forensic audit except the ones that have unqualified test laboratories and are not certified by the EAC. So basically, no one.
Another report from GP notes that new Dominion voting machines have arrived in Stark County, Ohio and they will be costing taxpayers a whopping $6.17 million up front.
And strangely, they hardware contains a software program designed to “evaluate voter intent.” What does that mean, exactly, and why do the officials in this county believe it’s important to know?
The Review reported that, “…Dominion quoted a retail cost for the new voting equipment of $6.17 million upfront, plus $331,550 a year to cover the software license, the hardware warranty and some ballot printing. The state covered $3.27 million. Dominion extended a trade-in credit of $1.7 million, reducing Stark County’s upfront cost to $1.48 million.”
So much shady business happening all around the country. This is why election integrity has now become such a critical issue, folks.
