Story out tonight on Russia being able to change votes in Ill.

I guess McConnell figures they need all the help they can get.

Well what is attached to the bill? That might be it, but I can't think of any other reason to block it.

So who did Election Systems & Software company nudge in Congress to get this bill on the agenda ?
This wasn't originated in Congress by the way.

This company has been lobbying Congress to go back to paper.
The question is why ?

This company started pushing this flyer to Congress critters last October.
Then in March held a "test" in a suite and invited DHS and members of Congress.

No votes got changed. Notice the 2014 date ?

The heavily redacted report contains almost entirely known information, so in that sense it’s not a bombshell document. But it does detail how Russia “directed extensive activity, beginning in at least 2014 and carrying into at least 2017, against US election infrastructure at the state and local level.”
..
Luckily, the panel found “no evidence that any votes were changed or that any voting machines were manipulated” across the entirety of the voting infrastructure. What’s more, it looks like Russian actors didn’t even try to manipulate the vote on election day in 2016, though the report notes that “the Committee and IC’s [intelligence community’s] insight into this is limited.”
..
So the report apparently found Russia’s infiltration was seemingly more a fact-finding mission than anything else, not really an attempt to directly alter the vote count. That may sound reassuring, but the worry is that Moscow could potentially do more damage in the future.

With good ol' Mitchy Turtle-Boy in charge of election security, it looks like voting for Boris and Natasha is a big Yes and voting for Aunt Jemima is a big Nyet!

Why aren't the republicans themselves introducing bills to fight interference?

Why isn't the Senate Majority Leader demanding that such a bill be produced for a vote?

Could it have anything to do with the millions of dollars in rubles he took? Is Mitch actually a Russian agent, bought and paid for? If not, why do he and the republicans hate America so much that they want to see Democracy destroyed?

Yup. Putin's Mitch. There's even billboards trying to bring attention to this in Kentucky.
