Academics claim electronic voting machines “hacked,” but Michigan is all paper ballots
by Paul Joseph Watson, Infowars:
An effort by computer scientists and lawyers to pressure the Clinton campaign into pushing for an election recount in closely contested states over “hacked results” has been debunked before it even got off the ground.
As the NY Mag reports, “The group, which includes voting-rights attorney John Bonifaz and J. Alex Halderman, the director of the University of Michigan Center for Computer Security and Society, believes they’ve found persuasive evidence that results in Wisconsin, Michigan, and Pennsylvania may have been manipulated or hacked.”
Despite conceding the election, the Clinton campaign is also very keen on hearing them out, with chairman John Podesta and campaign general counsel Marc Elias holding a conference call with the group last Thursday.
However, as pollster Nate Silver (hardly a fan of Trump) points out, the claims are already on thin ice.
The group claims that Clinton received 7 per cent fewer votes in counties that used electronic voting machines in comparison with those that used paper ballots and optical scanners.
But as Silver points out, “Michigan has paper ballots everywhere, so not even sure what claim is being made there.”
