I’ve realized I’ve hit the one year mark of closely following election fraud hijinks, especially when there bad infosec takes involved. Yay?
Anyways, I’m not the type of person to be like “have me on your podcast” but someone have me on their damn pod so I can brain dump.
Witness the moment where I started to talk about something and haven’t shut up about it a full year later

My first clue that there was a connection between Ramsland/ASOG and we_have_risen/Conan Hayes was a screenshot in one of Ramsland’s affidavits.
My initial theory was that Ramsland was just ripping off Twitter users

I’m going to give myself some props for this. Deal with it. I was dead on.

Ramsland: CISA has no idea what they’re doing
Also Ramsland: I’m going to copy/paste info out of a CISA report and I’ll it it in a sworn statement

Ramsland included text from a NIST file and claimed it came from the dark web

The moment I realized ASOG had been sniffing around Antrim before they had the court order

Found out later that, yes! It’s exactly what they did.

It turns out ASOG (well, more specifically one of Conan Hayes, who was working for ASOG last year), has continued to roll up to places (cough Mesa and Lake Countycough) for rogue investigations.

Not wrong but I underestimated their willingness to completely make shit up

A year later and people are still talking about this smh

When Conan, along with ASOG, showed up to “strong arm” clerks (their words, not mine) in Michigan, he was gleefully posting pictures online.
These were the first successful attempts by Trump affiliates to get access to Clerks offices and equipment

Cut to a year later: there were (completely useless) PCAPs captures from Clark County, NV that were recorded in 12/1 and shared as part of the Cyber Symposium data

Ron Watkins’ election disinfo led someone to suggest that somebody should get “real sneaky” photos of the MI AG’s kids and send them to her.

Sincerely upsetting that this is still status quo

If you have any interest in an extremely long thread debunking the ASOG report, here ya go
You know what else is still broken a year later?

KanekoaTheGreat, cited in the ASOG report, has moved to Telegram and continues to be a prolific spreader of election - and now vaccine - disinformation

We know now that Patrick Byrne paid for the jet

Anyways, didn’t intend to start a retrospective thread, but it’s interesting revisiting things after a year of processing new information and context.
It was also depressing because it doesn’t seem like we’ve moved the needle much.
Join me next month for my January retrospective. Here’s a sneak peak
