Americans are getting a shocking new warning about the integrity of our elections.
A group of leading computer hackers at a conference this weekend were reportedly able to expose massive flaws in digital voting systems. Computerized voting machines used in U.S. elections were able to be hacked in as little as half an hour.
“Without question, our voting systems are weak and susceptible. Thanks to the contributions of the hacker community today, we’ve uncovered even more about exactly how,” one technology executive told the media after the event. “ … The scary thing is we also know that our foreign adversaries — including Russia, North Korea, Iran — possess the capabilities to hack them too, in the process undermining principles of democracy and threatening our national security.”
Tech minds at the annual DEF CON in Las Vegas were given physical voting machines and remote access, with the instructions of gaining access to the software.
… Some devices were found to have physical ports that could be used to attach devices containing malicious software. Others had insecure Wi-Fi connections, or were running outdated software with security vulnerabilities like Windows XP.
… The machines were bought on Ebay and were manufactured by major U.S. voting machine companies such as Diebold Nixorf, Sequoia Voting Systems and Winvote.
The most alarming thing is that Democrats and the liberal elites have so far been unwilling to acknowledge that election rigging is a problem.
The Trump administration has spent the last several months conducting an important investigation to uncover election fraud by illegal voters. However, those efforts have faced significant pushback from Democrats and their big-money donors.
At this point, there is hard evidence of a very serious problem, yet the Democrats and Republicans in Washington D.C. cannot seem to come together and find a solution. At the very least, they should get out of the way and let Trump and his election commission get to the bottom of this.
