In lawsuit documents, Dominion employees admit voting equipment 'riddled with bugs'

•, by:

Just weeks before the 2020 presidential election, Eric Coomer, Dominion's director of product strategy and security, acknowledged that "our shit is just riddled with bugs."

In 2019, Coomer noted that "our products suck." He lamented that "[a]lmost all" of Dominion's technological failings were "due to our complete f--- up in installation."

In another instance, Coomer identified a "*critical* bug leading to INCORRECT results." He went on to note: "It does not get much worse than that." He also lamented that "we don't address our weaknesses effectively!"

Dominion is seeking $1.6 billion in its lawsuit against Fox News.

"That is 42 times larger than what Staple Street Capital paid to acquire most of the company as recently as 2018," Raheem Kassam pointed out in a Feb. 17 analysis. "Staple Street has already made most of its money back, by the way, with discovery revealing 'Dominion projects revenues of $98 million,' for 2022."

Discovery in the case also revealed that Mark Beckstrand, a Dominion sales manager, confirmed that other parties "have gotten ahold of [Dominion's] equipment illicitly" in the past.

Beckstrand identified specific instances in Georgia and North Carolina and testified that a Dominion machine was "hacked" in Michigan.

The court filing (which can be viewed here) states that in 2018, Princeton University Professor Andrew Appel published an article illustrating "a serious design flaw" in Dominion's new machines: "after you mark your ballot, after you review your ballot, the voting machine can print more votes on it." Appel elaborated that "it's impossible to absolutely prevent a hacker from replacing the computer's software with a vote-stealing program that deliberately miscounts the vote."
