Judge Says Election System Vulnerable to Hacking

Judge Says Election System Vulnerable to Hacking

(TheRedWire.com) – In the wake of the 2020 general election, Georgia officials faced criticism and lawsuits over issues with voting machines. However, the courts said they found no widespread evidence of problems or wrongdoing that was enough to overturn the election. Yet, just weeks before the election, one federal judge said enough evidence existed that pointed to the impending election that would rock America. The case documents have been resurfacing all across the internet.

Weeks before the election, on Oct 11, 2020, United States District Judge Amy Totenberg wrote a revealing order in a case about potential problems with new voter machines that could affect the outcome of the 2020 election. The judge wrote that the court’s evidence from the 2019 pilot elections and the 2020 primary election demonstrated that the machine’s scanners and software were full of security vulnerabilities and operational issues. As a result, a “severe breakdown” ensued at the polls. The chilling effect was a severe burden on voting integrity that cast a shadow over the 2020 election.

However, the judge also ruled that she was constrained both by Supreme Court precedent and time to grant a disruption to the election. While the initial evidence was profound, the judge said more was still needed at the time.
