Well, that is scary! But how would the crime be carried out? Consider how many votes a crook would have to control to win a presidential election. In 2012, Obama beat Romney by roughly 4,000,000 votes. As a comment below reminds us, to win a majority of Electoral votes, a hacker using Weaver’s technique would have to control tens of thousands of votes. Obviously, a guy like Weaver couldn’t run around plugging keylogging devices into that many computers to steal log on info. So, how would it be done?
Jefferson spins a chilling tale, but it requires his readers to suspend their critical faculties to be affective. Is that what you want to do?
