Responding to Politico and WaPo reports, Georgia said to be considering closing down controversial Kennesaw State University Center for Election Systems

According to AJC,

The secretary of state’s office said Wednesday that it is “actively investigating alternative arrangements” to using Kennesaw State University’s Center for Election Systems, news that coincided with the unmasking by Politico Magazine of the security researchers behind a data scare involving the center that became public in March.

Politico and the Washington Post both reported yesterday that the KSU center was at the center of controversial handling of Georgia’s election infrastructure.

AJC reporting continues to  repeat denials from Secretary of State’s office that experts contest and to misstate Judge Adams’ decision last week that denied request to shift #GA06 to paper ballots.  SOS claims 27,000 voting machines air-gapped and not connected to the Internet, but experts have pointed out the many attack vectors that make use of indirect connections.

My name is Larry Vaughn. You last saw me In 1975 in Amity, New York. I was the town's mayor when a rogue sheriff tried to frighten 4th of July tourists with talk of a great white shark lurking off the shallow waters. Needless to say, I was not pleased with the panic that ensued. "No danger!" I said. "Fun in the water!" Then the shark started gobbling people up. I now regret that I did not do more to protect the people who trusted me, and I want to make sure the same thing does not happen to the voters of Georgia. There are sharks lurking offshore (in Russia, for example) who want to hack your votes. Like me your elected leaders are quick to shout "No danger!"
