The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) was warned by experts that voting machines were vulnerable to hackers and manipulation, a cybersecurity specialist said Monday.
Retired Col. Phil Waldron told a public hearing on election issues in Arizona that his team brought the information to DHS workers, including employees in the department’s cybersecurity office, known as CISA.
“When I started working on this project in August, I called them up and said, you guys have got to come out and look at it. They did. They spent an initial three hours going through this data. At the end of that, one of them said, ‘I think I need to go outside and throw up,’” said Waldron, who informed the hearing of issues his team uncovered with Dominion Voting Systems machines.
