CEO Arrested in MASSIVE Election Software Data Breach Case

The CEO of an election software company was just arrested after being accused of providing critical U.S. election data to the Chinese government.

The head of Konnech Corp., a Michigan-based software company, was arrested for allegedly stealing and storing personal data of Los Angeles County election workers on servers in China.

Eugene Yu is facing charges of stealing “the personal identifying information” of Los Angeles County election workers, according to the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office.

Konnech’s software was supposed to assist poll worker assignments, communications, and payroll.

According to the DA’s office, Konnech won a five-year, $2.9 million contract with Los Angeles County in 2020 for an election worker management system, PollChief software, that was used by the county in the last California election.

The contract stated that Konnech was to securely maintain the data and only provide access to U.S. citizens and permanent residents – which is why investigators were extremely alarmed to find that data being stored on servers in China.

 

The LA County DA claimed that this “had no impact on the tabulation of votes and did not alter election results.

Konnech, meanwhile, has been accused of having dangerous ties to the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and, prior to the investigation, maintained that there servers were all located in the United States.

The company had also filed a lawsuit attempting to silence a group called True the Vote, a nonprofit vote-monitoring organization in Texas, from exposing their ties to the CCP. The suit claimed that True the Vote made “false and racist accusations.

Yu’s arrest came about a month later based on the very evidence they were trying to stop from being revealed.

Following the news, counties across the country have reacted by pulling the plug on their contracts with Konnech, while some Democrat led counties are still pushing to keep using the potentially compromised software.
