Election Software Chief in Court and Engelbrecht Needs Prayer
As you know, IFA has been part of the journey to promote, pray for, and take action on election integrity. We started this journey with our good friend Catherine Engelbrecht of True the Vote way back in 2018. Know that your prayer and action has been making a difference–we reported that just last week Eugene Yu of Konnech, the election software company with Chinese ties, was arrested and will be arraigned on Friday morning in Los Angeles. This appearance in Court on this case needs prayer. It is possible that with this proceeding that a hornet’s nest will be opened on more election integrity issues, Chinese involvement, and even domestic participants. We are asking you to consider fasting and praying on Friday for this issue. In addition, as many of you know, those who expose these things are in great danger. Please pray for Catherine Engelbrecht, Gregg Phillips, the True the Vote team, and others who have been part of investigating these larger issues. Pray for a hedge of protection around them. Pray for justice to be served in this case. Pray for our elections as all of this is happening in the shadow of the 2022 midterm elections. Our nation and lives are at stake. Please comment below how you are praying and what you may want to share to encourage them.
And here is some new news on the Konnech issue from The Epoch Times. A county in northern Virginia has halted its use of Konnech Corp.’s election software after last week’s arrest of the company’s chief executive.
Since learning about the arrest, the Fairfax County Office of Elections has halted using Konnech’s PollChief election officer management software, Eric Spicer, the director and general registrar of the county’s Office of Elections, said in an emailed statement to The Epoch Times on Oct. 6.
The county also is terminating its contract with Konnech, Spicer added. Fairfax County election officials declined to comment on whether the county is securing a replacement product, given that Election Day is less than a month away.
PollChief, Konnech’s election worker management system product, is designed to assist with poll worker assignments, communications, and payroll, according to the statement.
“Furthermore, this software is not connected to the county’s voting systems or the state voter registration system. It cannot be used to tabulate votes or election results,” he said.
“It is important to note that Fairfax County has never used software from this company to collect or store sensitive personal information such as Social Security numbers or banking information,” Spicer said in the statement. …
Konnech CEO Eugene Yu, 51, was arrested in Michigan on Oct. 4 as part of an investigation into the suspected “theft of personal identifying information” of Los Angeles County election workers, according to the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s (DA) Office. …
Christine Brim, a coordinator of the Fairfax County Republican election integrity working group that recruits and trains poll watchers to observe voting on behalf of the Republican Party, confirmed that she was notified about the county’s decision in a phone call from Christopher Henzel, chairman of the county electoral board and a Republican.
Brim praised the county’s election officials for taking swift action.
“They did not wait to find an alternative vendor. They simply got out of the risky situation, to their credit,” she told The Epoch Times. “They just turned on a dime, said ‘no more,’ and got out.” …
