NEW YORK CITY, NEW YORK: Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene took to X (formerly Twitter) to question the security of voting machines and the election overall on Sunday, April 7.

The Georgia representative shared a clip in her tweet featuring Democratic politicians, including Vice President Kamala Harris, and Senators Amy Klobuchar and Ron Wyden, who raised the same questions during the time Donald Trump was president.

Marjorie Taylor Greene questions security of voting machines

The video uploaded by Greene begins with Kamala Harris addressing election security back in 2020. The then-Senator is heard saying, "I also held a demonstration for my colleagues here at the Capitol. We brought in folks who, before our eyes, hacked election machines, those that are being used in many states but are not state of the art from our perspective."

It then shows Sen Klobuchar stating in a documentary interview, "We're very concerned because there are only three companies. You could easily hack into them. It makes it seem like all these states are doing different things but in fact, three companies are controlling that."

Finally, Sen Wyden is seen saying in the Capitol, "43% of American voters use voting machines that researchers have found have serious security flaws including backdoors. These companies are accountable to no one. They won't answer basic questions about their cyber security practices and the biggest companies won't answer any questions at all."

"Five states have no paper trail, and that means there is no way to prove the numbers the voting machines put out are legitimate," he continues, before adding, "So much for Cyber Security 101."

Greene wrote in her post, "Before 2020, Democrats said voting machines weren’t safe and could be hacked. Now the left attacks anyone who says the exact same thing they said. Play this video on loop. We don’t have a country without safe and secure elections."

"Voting machines are safe, they’re talking about republicans allowing voter machine tampering," one person said.



 

"The machines are not vulnerable when you own the cheat code," a person wrote.
