Fulton County Sues Dominion Voting Systems Over ‘Breach of Contract’

“On or after November 2020, Fulton County became aware of severe anomalies in the Dominion Voting Systems,” reads the lawsuit.

QUICK FACTS:
  • Fulton County, Pennsylvania is suing Dominion Voting Systems over the failure to meet basic certifications that would “ensure the integrity of the elections for the citizens of Fulton County.”
  • The Dominion certification report states that no aspects of the system will be connected to the internet except in a “standalone local area wired network configuration in which all connected devices are certified voting system components.”
  • J. Alex Halderman, a voting systems expert, issued a report in 2021 suggesting that Dominion was “vulnerable to remote internet access and did not in fact meet the Dominion Certification Report conditions as guaranteed and as warranted by Dominion,” therefore breaching its contract with Fulton County.
  • The lawsuit also describes a “python script” being entered into Dominion “after the certification date of the system.”
  • A python script “can exploit and create any number of vulnerabilities including, external access to the system, data export of the tabulations, or introduction of other metrics not part of or allowed by the certification process,” again breaching the contract with Fulton County.
OTHER INVESTIGATIONS INTO DOMINION:
  • EAC (Election Assistance Commission) conducted an investigation into a reported anomaly in 2021 from Tennessee.
  • The investigation described a discrepancy in the number of ballots scanned, although the results were labeled “inconclusive.”
  • Another investigation described in the lawsuit as “The September Report” claims “that external USB hard drives had been inserted in the machines on several occasions and that there is no known list of approved external drives that could have been or were used or inserted into the machines.”
READ THE SUIT:
BACKGROUND:
  • American Faith reported that Fulton County, Georgia, issued a hand-recount of ballots. The total number was off by 60% when comparing ballots to registered voters. Harri Hursti, a cybersecurity expert, purchased a Dominion voting machine from eBay, stating that Michigan authorities “had no idea” one of the machines went missing.
  • A court filing from June suggests there were further election security failures in Coffee County, Georgia. The filing by a cybersecurity expert details that “virus protection was so out of date that the system could not have prevented” hundreds of millions of “malicious codes.”
