“Effort to breach Ohio county’s voting system draws FBI and state scrutiny”

Washington Post Exclusive by Amy Gardner, Emma Brown, and Devlin Barrett

Investigators are examining possible connections between an attempted breach of Ohio county’s election network and “an incident in Colorado earlier this year, when government officials helped an outsider gain access to the county voting system in an effort to find fraud.” A key question seems to be the role of MyPillow executive, Mike Lindell, an ally of Donald Trump. “Data obtained in both instances were distributed at an August ‘cyber symposium’ on election fraud hosted by . . . Mike Lindell.”

“Together, the incidents in Ohio and Colorado point to an escalation in attacks on the nation’s voting systems by those who have embraced Trump’s false claims that the 2020 election was riddled with fraud. Now, some Trump loyalists pushing for legal challenges and partisan audits are also targeting local officials in a bid to gain access to election systems — moves that themselves could undermine election security.”
