Secretary of State (SOS) Brad Raffensperger invited Dominion CEO John Poulos to speak at the State Election Board (SEB) meeting today in an effort to justify the performance of their expensive, unverifiable voting system that accumulates votes hidden in QR codes voters cannot read. Ironically, Poulos said his company was a victim of “disinformation” while being quick to falsely claim that his Ballot Marking Device (BMD) system produces a “voter verified paper ballot”. If any of our readers know a voter who can verify the content of QR codes produced by the Dominion BMDs please let us know. Testimony in the Curling v. Raffensperger case against Georgia’s Dominion voting system indicates Dominion QR data is encoded but not encrypted. That means it is hackable by outside sources but the voter cannot interpret it even with a QR code reader. It is the worst of both worlds.
Mr. Poulos repeated the common talking point that “nearly 5 million paper ballots were counted three times in the state of Georgia”. That claim is cleverly misleading because:
Poulos continually claimed his Democracy Suite 5.5 system was proven to be accurate in the November 3rd election by the hand count audit that the state conducted for all ballots 10 days later. This might have been true had the hand count audit not been compromised with three fatal flaws in key Georgia counties. A sworn affidavit from VoterGA’s election integrity expert, Garland Favorito, who served as an audit monitor, recount monitor, State Farm Arena observer, Fulton tabulation observer and monitor coordinator, explains how the SOS and key counties subverted an otherwise beneficial audit:
Despite the fatal flaws, Poulos told the board: “To say that there is an abundance of evidence supporting the fact there was an accurate tally of ballots is an understatement”. But it gets worse. The published SOS batch data indicates the voting system reported hundreds of thousands of votes for which there are no batch tally sheets for the summary results published on the SOS Risk Limiting Audit page.
Any of these discrepancies is enough to reverse the outcome of the Presidential race that was decided by 11,779 votes. Despite major discrepancies such as these that place into question roughly 1 million of the nearly 5 million Georgia votes cast, Secretary Raffensperger elected to certify the Dominion results!
On matters of security, Mr. Polous suggested that board members ask Georgia county election officials.
He explained that back end county election management systems are “air gapped”, while the board seemed clueless to recognize how wireless connectivity that makes the system vulnerable to foreign and domestic interference is also “air gapped”. When asked about whether the Dominion system could receive a remote update, Mr. Poulos cleverly answered that the precinct machines are not connected to the internet but he avoided informing the board of whether or not the county election management systems were delivered with wireless connectivity.
Of course, informed members of the public had no opportunity to educate the board members since Secretary Raffensperger became the first Secretary in over 15 years to eliminate public comments from SEB meetings.
