was governor, Lt. governor, Secty of State, & AG of Alabama. He’s the only former Dem candidate w/ the guts to say that Rs likely hacked his election. Rs ensure no one can prove anything by blocking manual audits & recounts. Read.
With proprietary software & an absence of meaningful manual audits and recounts, no one can know if electronic outcomes are legitimate or not — even in jurisdictions w/ #handmarkedpaperballots
It is up to us, the voters, to provide #electiontransparency

pushed back, so Karl Rove used his connections to lock him up. Hundreds of prosecutors from around the US, including many Rs, called it an unjust political prosecution. Ds are scared to speak up bc of this & fear of being called sore losers or tin foil or... 5/
... being falsely accused that calling out potential cheating would suppress turnout. 6/
Still not convinced anything is amiss & that we don’t have to do anything ourselves to make this election more transparent? Watch Atticus v. The Architect. It’s free if u have Amazon Prime. 7/ https://www.amazon.com/Atticus-Architect-Political-Assassination-Siegelman/dp/B078SF4M4G
If it doesn’t make you want to fight for election transparency, I’m not sure what will. Except maybe this Harpers article. Read it. It shld be taught in schools. 8/ https://harpers.org/archive/2012/11/how-to-rig-an-election/
9/ Please help protect this election by volunteering for #PhotoFinish

11/ “A Harris poll in Sept....found that people were...more likely to vote in the midterms bc of their fear of hacking..." The "record turnout...partly confirmed this,” challenging the “school of thought that...democracy is harmed by talk of... hacking..." https://www.newyorker.com/news/news-desk/the-recounts-in-florida-and-georgia-bring-a-touch-of-fairness-to-a-dysfunctional-election-day
13/ Rs blocked 3 election-security bills, including the SAFE Act which wld have banned the internet connectivity we now have in multiple states (WI, MI, FL, etc), required robust manual election audits, & banned new barcode touchscreen voting machines. https://thehill.com/homenews/house/482569-senate-gop-blocks-three-election-security-bills
14/ Do you see now why I say our election system isn’t transparent? Remember the software is proprietary & the vendors thus block all attempts to forensically analyze their equipment. This is what John Kerry’s campaign learned in 2004 when they tried to do that b4 the election.
15/ Kerry’s campaign suspected the 2004 election was hacked by the GOP but Kerry waited more than a decade to admit it. Thread w/ sources. https://threadreaderapp.com/thread/1037782513186263040.html
