Ever since now-President Joe Biden was first declared the winner of the 2020 election, Republican lawmakers and voters have scrambled to look for any vindication whatsoever for former President Donald Trump's lie that the 2020 election was somehow "stolen" from him by Democrats engaging in widespread election fraud.
Trump and his supporters claim that U.S. elections aren't secure, but actually rife with voter fraud. This is despite all evidence pointing to the contrary.
Now, one pro-Trump election official accidentally breached her own election system's security in her attempts to prove Trump's election fraud lies right.
Mesa County, Colorado elections clerk Tina Peters—a staunch supporter of Donald Trump—sent secretly recorded video and screenshots to Ron Watkins, the 8chan administrator whom many believe is secretly the "Q" of QAnon. The low-quality video shows Peters asking questions to a Dominion Voting Systems employee, attempting to vindicate her election fraud fantasies.
But it was the screenshots that proved to be Peters' biggest misstep.
Watkins shared the information, crediting a "whistleblower," but failed to block out Peters' password to the election system's basic input/output system (BIOS) motherboard—a catastrophic breach of election security.
What some hoped would be the "Kraken" turned out just to be a Karen.
It was yet another instance of Republican projection.
