A parade of U.S. officials publicly espouses how secure our election system is: No votes were changed by hackers in 2016, they insist.
Since the system is a hodgepodge of different methods in different counties in different states, it’s too idiosyncratic to be affected by a large-scale attack, they say.
Enter Hursti, who’s in the business of showing these people they’re absolutely full of crap. In Hacking Democracy, Hursti cut through the security systems in Diebold voting machines like Godzilla through a sheet of Saran Wrap.
Diebold responded with a defensive PR campaign in which they attempted to squash the film’s release (they were unsuccessful) and prove the notorious Hursti Hack false, also unsuccessful as it was independently verified;
The film then reveals that those exact same Diebold machines will be used in 20 states for the 2020 election, which has now come and gone.
Eat shit, common sense!
