Who could have guessed that the feds would want to takeover our election process? Of course the using of a computerized system of voting is ripe for the picking. And who to be better pickers than dear old Uncle Sam. I give you a view examples before the story of what the feds have in their minds. Add the name Scytl, whose servers happen to be in Spain. Here are a couple of oldie posts.
“Obama donor’s company funds controversial election firm” reads the headline. We now are turning over our election software to a foreign company that happens to support Obama.The Drudge Report yesterday ran a feature titled “Foreign company buys U.S. election results reporting firm.” The article documented that SCYTL, based in Barcelona, acquired 100 percent of SOE Software, the leading software provider of election management solutions in the United States. Drudge reports that the best part is that the election results are redirected not to a USA server, but to a server overseas.
UPDATE:Save American Foundation:
SCYTL, the global leader in secure electronic voting technologies, announced today the acquisition of 100% of SOE Software, the leading software provider of election management solutions in the United States.
Why is a software company based in Barcelona Spain(SCYTL) now in charge of counting our votes in the upcoming General Election on November 6th. Did the Federal Elections Commission approve of this ? (FEC) Did the Congress of the United States approve of this ? April 9, 2014
But I digressed:
Even before the FBI identified new cyber attacks on two separate state election boards, the Department of Homeland Security began considering declaring the election a “critical infrastructure,” giving it the same control over security it has over Wall Street and and the electric power grid.
Johnson also said that the big issue at hand is that there isn’t a central election system since the states run elections. “There’s no one federal election system. There are some 9,000 jurisdictions involved in the election process,” Johnson said.
