Dear @SpeakerPelosi: If we want election reform, we must educate the public as to how the vendors have made our elections vulnerable to attack, including by installing remote access software & wireless modems. SHOW WHY vendors & officials can’t be trusted to self-police. 1/

Knowledge is power. And right now we have no power to effect change because the public has no idea how blatant the security holes really are. 2/

Repeating that “Russia attacked our election is fine,” but insufficient when you & everyone else in DC pretends that (a) it was primarily a social media campaign & that (b) there is a factual basis for Trump’s claim that vote tallies weren’t changed (in truth, no one looked). 3/

It is also insufficient when you fail to provide even abbreviated specifics as to what specifically is wrong with our system & what specifically is needed to fix it. 4/

Educating the public should be the Democrats’ number one strategy right now. An educated electorate can help effect change. An uninformed electorate can’t do much of anything to help. Thanks. 5/
