.@JessicaHuseman continues to focus on the conflict of interest involving the cyber firm the Democratic SOS in KY hired to audit KY’s insecure election system, while ignoring the conflict involving KY’s actual voting machine vendor and the GOP. This is what concerned me. 1/

.@JessicaHuseman’s apparent failure to vet Jared Dearing, who filed the complaint against Alison Grimes (which provided the basis for Huseman’s multi-part series against Grimes) also concerned me. Huseman is building her career by destroying Grimes’s. 2/

Alison Grimes is the Democratic Secretary of State of Kentucky. She is KY’s top election official. But Dearing joined w/ the GOP to strip her of her powers. This is Mitch McConnell’s state. 3/

If you are going to hand KY elections over to the GOP, you want to at least make sure you aren’t being duped by people with a political agenda and that you don’t create a false impression that the GOP doesn’t also have a conflict of interest involving election security. 4/

Oh look! Here’s Julie Griggs, @JessicaHuseman’s other supposedly “Democratic” source posing at a fundraiser for REPUBLICAN governor Matt Bevin! Recall Before Huseman’s reports attacking Grimes (based on info from Julie Griggs), Grimes was a top contender for governor of KY. 5/
