(PresidentialInsider.com)- Mere days before a joint session in Congress decides whether or not to approve the Electoral College vote, a witness gave testimony at a Georgia state Senate hearing explaining how he hacked into the Georgia runoff election system and proved two-way communication from the devices.
Jovan Hutton Pulitzer from the Gold Institute of International Strategy, who is an inventor and patent holder, explained on Wednesday how he hacked into a Fulton County voting machine and proved that it was connected to the Internet.

During the hearing, he explained how he has access to the polling pad – the machine used by voters to cast their votes – and that he had gained access via Wi-Fi.
“At this very moment at a polling location in the county, not only do we now have access to the devices to the poll pad – the system – but we are in,” he said. “It’s not supposed to have Wi-Fi, and that’s not supposed to happen.”
Pulitzer explained how the device was “communicating two ways in real time,” meaning that malicious actors could hack the machines and change data with the device in a way that would affect an election. He explained that it should never happen on voting machines.
“But that’s going on right there where everybody’s voting,” he added. “And I just wanted to get it on the record.”

A member of the audience asked if he was talking about a mobile precinct, but Pulitzer confirmed it was a regular standing building with machines that have been used in several elections already.
The news is particularly disturbing given that the same machines were used in the disputed 2020 presidential election, and that they will also be used in the January 5 Georgia Senate runoff election.
Georgia State Senator Blake Tillery asked Pulitzer to confirm the kind of device he had accessed.
“We’ve heard that there’s three different types of machines: a scanner, a ballot marking device, and a polling ad. Do you know which one it is communicating?” he asked.
Pulitzer said that he presently had access to a polling pad device, but that it “only takes one device where you daisy chain them together and do it.”
“The most important thing is that it shouldn’t be doing and even shouldn’t be accessible,” he continued. “And it’s there.”
Could these vulnerable voting machines sway the Georgia Senate runoff election in the most contentious election season ever?
