Amazing, liberals have known about this all along but they are awfully silent now!

“Someone is hacking into these computers that tabulate the votes” – US Representative Hank Johnson (D-GA)
It was April of 2016 when Georgia Democrat Hank Johnson saidthese words, in a House Judiciary Committee hearing. Officially, the topic was something bland-sounding, having to do the with voter suppression and insecure elections blah blah.
But the real topic in the air of the packed room was the feeling of many, that Bernie Sanders had just been cheated in the primaries.
Johnson was taking about a kind of election fraud that is hard to see. No boxes of ballots disappearing or magically appearing in the middle of the night. A kind which can take but a few keystrokes, once access is gained. A few lines of code. The only way to prove or disprove it conclusively is to hand-count the paper ballots.“There is a very insidious, treacherous and deceitful method of voter suppression, and it has to do with the integrity of the voting process itself.”
Shockingly, both ES&S and its main competitor, Dominion Voting Systems, manufacture vote-counting machines that security experts say can add votes to paper ballots after they are cast by voters.
That July, a team of statisticians and election integrity activists, one of whom was a former president of the American Statistical Association, published a paper that shook many Sanders supporters.
In the first place, the statisticians were concerned that in key counties in all-important New York, such as Kings County in the chart below (Brooklyn,) Hillary Clinton just happened to do much better where the votes were counted by machine, rather than by hand. Kings County uses a combination of Dominion and ES&S vote-counting machines.
The authors of the paper wrote that in New York, a key battleground in Democratic presidential primaries:
“In every single assembly district we examined, except one, Hillary Clinton performed better when the votes were counted by machine; Sanders performed better when the votes were counted by hand. The graph shows eight of the districts that were included in the study. This is a small sample of the overall ballots cast, but the consistency of the results makes a convincing case that something is amiss.”
