(TeaParty.org Exclusive) – An independent government elections agency believes that elections in Michigan could have been compromised thanks to the use of cellular modems to transmit election results.
The United States Election Assistance Commission (EAC) contends that Dominion Voting Systems machines used in Michigan utilize “modem transmission features” and “do not match the EAC-certified system configuration,” as stated in a letter from the inspector general of the EAC to Congressman Bill Posey.
According to a top Dominion executive, the company’s machines use cellular modems which top elections experts have previously expressed “make Michigan elections vulnerable.”
Created in 2002 by the Help America Vote Act, the EAC is an independent agency of the federal government. One of their focuses is on providing information and resources regarding election administration throughout the US.
Despite the fact that the EAC and other elections experts have warned that cellular modems could compromise US elections, Dominion CEO John Poulos reportedly testified in December that Dominion machines are not connected to the internet but do use cellular modems in some areas to transmit results after hours.
In the letter to Rep. Posey, the EAC inspector general’s office notes that “even if a state purchases an EAC-certified system, a state may alter the certified configuration for state-specific requirements (such as straight-party voting or modem transmission of results). Each state performs its own system certifications, to include those state-specific requirements.”
The letter goes on to explain that Dominion has never applied through the EAC “for certification of a voting system configuration that includes modern transmission” and asserts that if Michigan’s Dominion systems use modem transmission they “do not match the EAC-certified system configuration.”
However, the letter also states that “Michigan would have certified its configurations of its systems in accordance” with state law that was referenced previously in the letter.
Rep. Posey made reference to the letter in a March press release in which he explained several amendments that were struck down by the Democrat-controlled House.
“(1) prohibiting voting machines from connecting to the Internet, (2) requiring election hardware and software be American made, and (3) ensuring that election machines are fully auditable and that elections officials could no longer deny audits due to proprietary software or hardware issues. Unfortunately, these amendments were blocked and not allowed to be voted on by the House.”
Posey went on to point out that his amendments would only serve to “promote election security” but thanks to the radical Democrats the American people could “be subject to counting by foreign equipment that cannot be audited and that may be connected to the internet.”
Back in October 2018, elections experts were sounding the alarm on systems that use cellular modem transmission. In a Detroit Free Press article titled, “Experts: Cellular modems make Michigan elections vulnerable”, Michigan officials apparently boasted of the fact that their election machines weren’t connected to the internet, however, many election experts still warned that the use of cellular modems still pose a risk to election security.
“In an Oct. 2 letter to the U.S. Department of Homeland Security and the U.S. Election Assistance Commission, 30 academics, security experts and election integrity activists — including a computer science professor at the University of Michigan — expressed “grave concerns” about the devices.”
They argued that using cellular modems makes US elections “vulnerable to tampering and could result in malware infecting election machines” and added that they can “wreak havoc on an election.”
The experts also requested that the federal government warn state and local agencies against the use of these modems.
The previous year, all Michigan counties replaced their outdated voting machines with new equipment and clerks got to choose between three manufacturers: Dominion, Election Systems & Software (ES&S) or Hart InterCivic. All three of these manufacturers offer the cellular modem option.
Experts believe that the use of these cellular modems is widespread in the state of Michigan and that federal action should be taken to prevent these modems from even briefly connecting to the internet which “can make the system vulnerable to attacks that could impact current or future election results.”
It’s time for a full statewide forensic audit of Michigan’s 2020 election results. It’s becoming more clear by the day that the election was anything but fair and secure.
Aren’t Democrats all about listening to the “experts?” Funny how they always seem to ignore the ones who don’t agree with their radical agenda.
