Bombshell! US Election Software Firm CEO Arrested for Storing Data on Servers in China

The failing New York Times had dismissed the story as a "conspiracy theory" just days before the arrest of Konnech CEO Eugene Yu.

The CEO of a U.S. election software company was arrested in connection to storing data servers in Communist China.

Eugene Yu, the CEO of the software firm Konnech, was arrested Tuesday outside of Lansing, Michigan, after Los Angeles prosecutors accused him of improperly storing election information in China.

“Konnech allegedly violated its contract by storing critical information that the workers provided on servers in China. We intend to hold all those responsible for this breach accountable,” Los Angeles County District Attorney George Gascón said.

“Konnech allegedly violated its contract by storing critical information that the workers provided on servers in China. We intend to hold all those responsible for this breach accountable,” Gascón said, adding that his office has found no evidence suggesting the information had been sold.

Konnech issued a statement in following Yu’s arrest denying the allegations:

We are continuing to ascertain the details of what we believe to be Mr. Yu’s wrongful detention by LA County authorities. Any LA County poll worker data that Konnech may have possessed was provided to it by LA County, and therefore could not have been ‘stolen’ as suggested.

Yu’s arrest comes after True the Vote, an election integrity nonprofit group, held a conference in Phoenix, Arizona, alleging Konnech had given the Chinese government backdoor access to personal data of about 2 million poll workers in the U.S.

Predictably, The New York Times is with egg on its face after dismissing the report outright just two days before Yu’s arrest, citing and accepting Konnech’s denial of the accusations at face-value.

From The Times’ story titled, “How a Tiny Elections Company Became a Conspiracy Theory Target“:

At an invitation-only conference in August at a secret location southeast of Phoenix, a group of election deniers unspooled a new conspiracy theory about the 2020 presidential outcome. 

Using threadbare evidence, or none at all, the group suggested that a small American election software company, Konnech, had secret ties to the Chinese Communist Party and had given the Chinese government backdoor access to personal data of about 2 million poll workers in the United States, according to online accounts from several people at the conference.

Konnech said none of the accusations were true. It said that all the data for its American customers were stored on services in the United States and that it had no ties to the Chinese government.

Meanwhile, True the Vote Founder Catherine Engelbrecht thanked the L.A. District Attorney’s office for arresting Yu.

“Election integrity should not be a partisan issue, nor should media try to suppress all conversation about it in a way that benefits one party,” Engelbrecht. “We will continue to report evidence of threats to our election process and work with law enforcement to ensure our elections are a secure space for all American voters.”

Despite Yu’s arrest by the Democrat L.A. District Attorney’s office, the mainstream media will still not likely report much on this damning story because it undermines their narrative that U.S. elections are the most “safe and secure” in history.
