Officials in FL, MI, WI, MN, & IL ignored election-security experts who advised them to remove (or at least not use) the modems in their precinct ballot scanners. So @IonSancho just sent the attached letter to FL county officials. Will they listen?! 1/ https://drive.google.com/file/d/1ktxlyEcLWj4yQ1W9EesxY4rh5U_WJWHb/view?usp=sharing
2/ Here's the election-security expert sent to @FLSecofState in September, which she ignored ignored. The letter implored her to #RemoveTheModems from FL's precinct ballot scanners. It may be too late now to remove them, but they cld at least not use them. https://www.documentcloud.org/documents/7225186-Wireless-Modems-2020-9-15-20-FL.html
3/ Here's a recent article about the risks of these modems in Florida. The same concerns apply in all of the other states with these modems. Again, officials in all of these states are ignoring the warnings. https://www.palmbeachpost.com/story/news/2020/10/16/florida-voting-machines-ripe-russian-hackers-experts-say/3650817001/
Post Investigation: These Florida voting machines ripe for Russian hackers, experts say
Though Florida elections officials say no voting machinery is hooked up to the internet, that’s just not true.https://www.palmbeachpost.com/story/news/2020/10/16/florida-voting-machines-ripe-russian-hackers-experts-say/3650817001/
4/ If you don't know who @IonSancho is, you shld. He served as an election supervisor in Leon County Florida for 30 years. He arranged the @HarriHursti demo, which proved how easy it is to hack voting machines (despite what vendors & others had claimed.) http://www.hackingdemocracy.com/about
5/ In addition to the states I already listed, I believe that TN, TX, and IN have modems in at least some counties as well. It should be a scandal, but most of the TV media has ignored it. If we ignore problems they go away, right?
6/ The one TV anchor who did not ignore this scandal is @cynthiamcfadden at @NBCNews. Here is her report, which picked up on @KimZetter's written report. https://www.nbcnews.com/politics/elections/online-vulnerable-experts-find-nearly-three-dozen-u-s-voting-n1112436
