That decision comes as a shocker because U.S. District Judge Amy Totenberg i a far leftist judge who is not afraid to ignore the law when it comes to decision making. Democrats all across the country is shaking in their boots because the main avenue for cheating will be cut off. If the plaintiffs win their lawsuit Georgia will vote by paper ballots instead of Dominion voting systems. It is nearly impossible to manufacture enough votes to win a tainted election under those circumstances.
The case started three years ago when forensic experts found many ways the machines were vulnerable to cheat. The suit was brought by voters who insist the state use all paper ballots. Oddly, this will probably reduce the time it takes to count the votes since Democrats and RINO won’t need all that time to manufacture votes. France has a population of nearly 65 million people. They only use paper ballots and the complete their counting on election night.
“The Court cannot wave a magic wand in this case to address the varied challenges to our democracy and election system in recent years, including those presented in this case.”
“But reasonable, timely discussion and compromise in this case, coupled with prompt, informed legislative action, might certainly make a difference that benefits the parties and the public.”
Marilyn Marks, executive director for the Coalition for Good Governance said:
“The court’s order makes it clear that Georgia’s status quo is far too risky, and that these concerning issues merit a trial. We look forward to prevailing at trial as we demonstrate why touchscreen BMDs (ballot-marking devices) cannot be used safely.”
Amid the 135 pages of her ruling, Totenberg pushed back against labeling the plaintiffs:
“The Court notes that the record evidence does not suggest that the Plaintiffs are conspiracy theorists of any variety. Indeed, some of the nation’s leading cybersecurity experts and computer scientists have provided testimony and affidavits on behalf of Plaintiffs’ case in the long course of this litigation.”
One report was filed by Alex Halderman, a computer science professor at the University of Michigan.
His report, produced in 2021, said Georgia’s system “suffers from critical vulnerabilities that can be exploited to subvert all of its security mechanisms,” according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
Halderman said anyone with physical access to a voting machine had the capability to alter votes on the machine, and that someone who accessed the election management system could do more than change one machine.
According to the Associated Press, the state has said it will not install a software update that could address the issues raised by Halderman.
Gabriel Sterling, chief operating officer in the Secretary of State’s office has mocked Halderman’s conclusions as “hypothetical scenarios that can’t work.”
But those pushing for change say just going to trial shows there is a problem.
“We look forward to presenting our full evidence at trial and obtaining critical relief for Georgia voters,” Cross said. “But we hope this decision will be a much-needed wakeup call for the Secretary and SEB, and finally spur them to work with us on a negotiated resolution that secures the right to vote in Georgia.”
