The election-integrity community is elitist. Matt claims to agree w/ me on substance but takes issue w/ my publicly exposing the flaws in the reasoning of those w/ whom he disagrees on substance. Because it’s rude to tell the public these people are screwing up our elections. 1/
2/ Yes, let’s all be polite while these people screw up our elections for the next decade by giving the green light on sketchy equipment purchases.
3/ In reality, the vendor-propaganda people are the bullies because THEY are the ones with the power. They are the ones asked to testify to Congress. They are the ones w/ whom lawmakers typically consult.
4/ They ignored my legitimate concerns when I had 1K followers. Most of them ignore them still, but now call me a “bully” bc I have more followers than they do. Boo hoo. If they are going to eff up MY elections & thus MY kid’s’ future, I am going to call them out. Publicly.
5/ Because doing it all in private doesn’t let anyone else know what the hell is going on.
6/ And if it feels to him that there is a Twitter “army” questioning some of his pals, it is because I helped arm a lot of voters with facts and sources, while he and his elitist friends chose blocks and mute buttons.
