Revoke their contract ASAP for violating the T&Cs, and charge them with whatever will stick as it relates to willfully attempting to alter or destroy voting records.

When does the DOJ move in and arrest everyone?

I don't care how it looks.  The DoJ needs to step in now.  Someone has to babysit these morons.

It's okay, the computers they used have the latest version of KasperSky antivirus software.

As if the ballots hadn't already been compromised by letting them be freely handled by insurrectionists with the type of pens than can alter their markings.

It's like watching people from the 15th century try and understand a fighter jets.

They are sticking their heads in the thrusters long before they figure out there's a cockpit.

I'm watching democracy die here in Arizona. I watched Proto Trump Joe Arpaio run rampant for well over a decade and now I get to watch this.

We got Arpaio, y'all got Trump. We have this sh*tshow, what will happen when this goes national?

Couple this with the Trump Wing of the GOP purging those who aren't up for the whole authoritarian dictatorship idea and you can start to see a plan clearly emerging.

Capitalism will embrace fascism when it enters into crisis.

SecretaryHobbs: 🚨 Yesterday, observers from my office discovered a WiFi router connected to the "audit" servers. There's no way to ensure that ballot images, vote counts, & perhaps voter data weren't connected to external networks or the internet. https://t.co/Edgjwc8HUp


This was the point all along: destroy all proof that Trump lost.

Democracy is lost.

And no one gives a fark.

I feel like a company called "Cyber Ninjas" should be able to hide a WiFi router better.

I'm just waiting now to hear from Cyber Pirates that they got all the data off the servers, and have encrypted the servers.

I don't think they have such a grand plan.  I don't think they're competent enough to HAVE a plan.  Certainly Trump is not, or the 1/6 insurrection would have coincided with a move by paramilitary forces to seize various organs of government and officials.  Any Third World colonel understands that much.

But what is going on now is accidentally a real world experiment that's allowing people like Josh Hawley to take notes and perfect their strategies for the future toppling of democracy in the future, when the orange clown is gone.  Then the real professional murderers move in.

They haven't arrested the former guy yet, so nothing will happen.

No duh... I swear we're such Puritans. I don't care what it costs. Buy these people off. It's the way the world works and the GOP have no trouble doing it for their ends. If we are ever to counter attack, we have to play by the rules of the world, not the rules of Kindergarten.

But... we know that's not going to happen.

Yep. This was never about the last election. It was about the next election. Which might be the last election.

This was always going to end with, "they've invalidated their own recount and their audit must be discarded."

No, it does not and never did. It was always just political theater, mostly to justify the AZ GQP's planned voter suppression legislation.

There is the side hustle of typical grift, so they're feeding the conspiracy theorist rubes at the same time, but the main goal is the voter suppression to prevent any of those awful libs from being elected in the future.

This is funny and not in a good way.  If you had the displeasure of listening to the Kraken's "I.T." expert talk after the election they were bent out of shape because election machines were connected to basic ethernet switches.  That type of networking is probably necessary for control of the machines and is probably fine if it is just local networking.

So, now, the crack Kraken team has not only hooked them out to a switch, but have wifi access, which is one step beyond what they biatched about earlier.  Makes you wonder if they even bothered to put a password on the wi-fi.

What a bunch of dipshiats.

This was in the paper earlier this week:

A bigger fight, however, surrounds the routers. These are the devices the county uses to funnel computer traffic among its computers.

The routers themselves contain no information on what was transmitted or received.

But what they would show are the unique IP - for internet protocol - addresses of any traffic, both sent and received. And that could answer the allegation that someone, somehow, electronically injected extra votes for Joe Biden into the results.

It is that new request by the Senate that has angered Penzone and caused the supervisors to balk.

'Its most recent demands jeopardize the entire mission of the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office,' he said in a prepared statement.

'We are talking about confidential, sensitive and highly classified law enforcement data and equipment that will be permanently compromised,' the sheriff said. 'The current course is mind-numbingly reckless and  irresponsible.'

Penzone provided no details on how review of the computer traffic from computers used by the sheriff's office would compromise any investigation or the safety of any officer. But he hinted he would be willing to provide specifics if asked - or subpoenaed.

'It is my hope that additional education of the exposure of this data and equipment will compel the Senate Republican caucus to take a more responsible course of action,' he wrote.

They can't do that. Obama gave all the pallets to Iran already.

The AZ GOP have a bill ready to go that will give the legislature the ability to override the state poplar vote for POTUS.

This audit is to justify that bill.

It also appears to be a vehicle to transfer all elections data to a private GOP campaign organization, who I assume have plans for the data they're harvesting with the aid of the AZ GOP.
