As Dominion Voting Systems software comes increasingly under scrutiny in contested presidential elections this cycle, Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton tells Newsmax TV his state tested the software and rejected it.
"There is a reason that Texas rejected it," Paxton told "Stinchfield" host Grant Stinchfield. "We didn't do it arbitrarily. We knew that these were unreliable systems. We didn't want to trust them.
"We didn't want to be in the same situation that some of these other states are in now where we're questioning the results, so we clearly believe that this was a problem."
Paxton said Texas tested Dominion software up to three different times, beginning in 2012, each time finding system failures in both hardware and software.
"We discovered that these systems are subject to different types of unauthorized manipulation and potential fraud," he said.
President Donald Trump on Thursday accused Dominion Voting Systems of having “DELETED 2.7 MILLION TRUMP VOTES NATIONWIDE.”
Trump tweeted a quote he attributed to One America News Network and its chief White House correspondent Chanel Rion as saying: “REPORT: DOMINION DELETED 2.7 MILLION TRUMP VOTES NATIONWIDE. DATA ANALYSIS FINDS 221,000 PENNSYLVANIA VOTES SWITCHED FROM PRESIDENT TRUMP TO BIDEN. 941,000 TRUMP VOTES DELETED. STATES USING DOMINION VOTING SYSTEMS SWITCHED 435,000 VOTES FROM TRUMP TO BIDEN.”
Twitter flagged this post with a note that says, “This claim about election fraud is disputed.”
However, many, including some lawmakers, have criticized Dominion software for not preventing glitches and other irregularities from occurring in voting machines. Dominion also bought Sequoia Voting Systems in 2010, which raised questions due to accusations that the latter was involved in rigging the 2004 Venezuelan elections.
