Here She Comes Again

“We are counsel to Jill Stein and the Stein Campaign in connection with the recounts she sought in Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin. We write to urge the Department of Justice to launch an investigation into the integrity of our nation’s election system generally, and our nation’s voting machines specifically, based on the information we discovered in the course of this representation,” the letter states.

“The attempted recount process has uncovered that voting machines relied on in these states and across the country are prone to human and machine error, especially in under-resourced black and brown communities, and vulnerable to tampering and hacking. The recount also found that the states’ efforts to protect their systems may be insufficient, particularly in low-income communities and communities of color. Each of these grave concerns warrants federal intervention,” it continues.

Oh, it gets worse.

“The need for the recounts in these states was prompted in part by the vulnerability of the voting machines relied on in these three states. There are at least two types of vulnerabilities: susceptibility to malicious interference and poor performance. These reliability issues are magnified in communities of color, which the United States Commission on Civil Rights has found are often more likely to have their votes miscounted or tossed out than predominantly white communities.”

Except…the recount efforts failed to expose any kind of widespread voter fraud (minus Detroit, which doesn’t bode well for Democrats), and there was NO EVIDENCE of hacking. None.

“Our representative democracy is founded on voting for our elected representatives. It is both a paramount civic duty and a fundamental right. Americans need to be confident that our voters are counter accurately,” the letter states.

You can read the entire letter here, if you wish. (It’s 23 pages, so have fun with that.)
