MIT Warns That Voting App Used in Several States is Vulnerable for Hackers to ‘Alter, Stop or Expose’ Votes

The app used in several states can be exploited, according to researchers.

An internet-based voting app that has been used on a limited basis in West Virginia, Denver, Oregon and Utah is vulnerable to hackers, according to Massachusetts Institute of Technology researchers.

The research indicates that Voatz, an app that has been mostly used for absentee voters and miitary personnel voting overseas, can be exploited to “alter, stop or expose how an individual has voted.”

Election security experts have long warned that internet-based voting is prone for hacking, but that hasn’t stopped states from attempting it.

“We all have an interest in increasing access to the ballot, but in order to maintain trust in our elections system, we must assure that voting systems meet the high technical and operation security standards before they are put in the field,” said Daniel Weitzner, an MIT scientist who helped to prepare the report, on Thursday.

Donald Kersey, a general counsel in the secretary of state’s office in West Virginia, explained that the state has to use electronic voting due to a new law that allows disabled people to vote online. He claims his state hasn’t committed to using the Voatz app.

“Obviously, integrity and security are prime, but voter confidence is equally important,” Kersey said.

Voatz disputes the MIT study, claiming that it was conducted in “bad faith,” and used an older, outdated form of their app that has since been improved. Nevertheless, the experts are crowing that this study backs what they have been saying about the dangers of electronic voting for many years.

“Not to in any way diminish this (excellent) work, but the fact that an online mobile voting scheme has serious security flaws is ultimately unsurprising,” tweeted Matt Blaze, a Georgetown University professor of computer science and law. “Every serious expert has warned against Internet voting.”

“In my view, based on MIT’s findings, no responsible jurisdiction should use Voatz in real elections any time soon,” wrote J. Alex Halderman, a University of Michigan professor. “It will take major advances in security technology before Internet voting is safe enough.”

This news comes after the Shadow voting app helped contribute to the turmoil that happened at the Iowa caucus last week:

The voting app, designed by Shadow Inc., that is responsible for tallying votes during the Iowa caucus has major establishment ties, particularly to South Bend, IN Mayor Pete Buttigieg, who has already declared himself the winner of the Iowa caucus despite the fact that no results have been released at this point.

Shadow is a tech project of ACRONYM. Free speech platform Gab noted that ACRONYM founder and CEO Tara McGowan is a huge Buttigieg supporter, as evidenced by her social media posts…

In addition, the leaders of Shadow all have extensive ties to the Hillary Clinton 2016 presidential campaign, according to their own social media profiles.

Shadow CEO Gerard Niemera lists himself as the former Director of Product for Hillary for America and Senior Product Manager during his 14 months of service to Clinton during her campaign. Shadow Product Manager Ahna Rao lists herself as a Clinton campaign worker for 19 months as Special Assistant to the Chief Technology Officer, and Shadow Chief Operating Officer James Hickey listed himself as Engineering Manager of Hillary for America for 18 months.

Technology is opening up new avenues for voter fraud that could conceivably have an impact on this year’s general election.

Democrat VP Choice Kamala Harris Pushed Bail Fund for Minneapolis Rioters ‘Charged with Murder, Violent Felonies, and Sex Crimes’

She helped get these criminals back on the streets to rape and pillage.

Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) has officially been announced as the vice presidential pick for Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden.

The Trump campaign is already painting her as a radical who has embraced the extreme Left in order to advance her career after having a tough-on-crime record for decades.

The campaign may have a point considering Harris once promoted a bail fund on her Twitter account that would allow Black Lives Matter and ANTIFA terrorists to get back on the streets and continue their sustained campaign of revolutionary violence.

Big League Politics has noted how the Minnesota Freedom Fund turned out to be a massive scam for organizers to largely cash out on the violence sweeping the nation:

Forbes reported on June 16, 2020 that the Minnesota Freedom Fund raised $30 million in donations in the aftermath of George Floyd’s death.

However, the non-profit received sharp criticism on June 16 after disclosing that it paid out $200,000 to help out agitators who ended up in jail. Such big spending has led to calls for more accountability about the non-profit’s spending habits…

“Without jeopardizing the safety of the folks we bailed out we paid well over $200k in the weeks since the uprising alone. We are working on doing more,” the non-profit Tweeted.

This fund was set up in 2016 and saw its reach expand in the wake of Floyd’s death on May 25 which kicked off national protests nationwide.

Celebrities, campaigners, and influencers were some of the notable figures who posted links to donate to the fund recently. The fund was overloaded with donations to the point that stopped requesting donations and asking that other people donate to other causes.

Critics complained about the fund not spending more and even suggested that some of the money go towards other causes or small businesses that were damaged in the community. Others defended the organization for setting up in the infrastructure to send out millions of dollars.

By supporting this scam, Harris helped to get violent terrorists subvert the rule of law and back on the streets of Minneapolis to turn the town into a wasteland.

Journalist Michael Tracey did what the fake news hacks refused to do and actually traveled to the streets of Minneapolis following the riots and recorded the aftermath, which looks like a freshly bombed out Somalia:

The depressing scenes in Minneapolis show what the rest of America will look like if the Biden/Harris ticket is successful in November.
