.@McFaul is promoting the #PAVEAct (rather than the Secure Elections Act). And he’s right. 1/

The #PAVEAct does all of the following. The Secure Elections Act does none of them. 2/

3/ Even if you think the #PAVEAct is a long shot, use it to educate the public, the media, members of Congress, state lawmakers, the EAC, and state and local election officials about MEANINGFUL minimum cybersecurity election standards.

4/ And don’t ASSUME that no portion of it can pass. It’s easy for the GOP to block an election-security bill if the media & their base have no idea what’s in it or that vendors have installed wireless modems & remote access in equipment. Much harder if these facts are publicized.
