It is not a stretch to imagine what kinds of ways the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) would try to influence the lives of civic-minded Americans who vote in US elections given that the CCP knows their names. It is reasonable to question what additional databases the Chinese have of Americans who engage in civic engagement, journalism, and political advocacy. Or what software are the Chinese employing for other purposes besides elections?
The majority of this information is being covered by the media to help those who are counting American elections, thanks to a determined group of election integrity activists from True the Vote and their supporters who uncovered everything at considerable personal expense.
The dramatic arrest that made the news on Wednesday was just the beginning of a much bigger saga.
Eugene Yu, 51, of Konnech Corporation, was arrested in Meridian Township in Michigan on Tuesday and held on suspicion of theft of personal identifying information, Los Angeles County district attorney George Gascón said in a statement.
His extradition to California is being sought by the district attorney’s office.
The arrest sparked a prompt response:
“The Left’s favorite Chinese American, Konnech CEO Eugene Yu, was heading to the airport to get out of Michigan when he was nabbed. No cell phone on him! Prosecutors call him a flight risk because of his extensive connections in China. Election fraud has consequences!” Dinesh D’Souza responded in writing.
This week, information about the arrest became widely known, prompting many individuals to wonder the same thing: how secure are we all when taking part in American civics?
“Konnech CEO Eugene Yu was caught lying about storing the personal data of 2M US election workers in China. Legacy media went totally silent. Thus the CCP likely has had access passwords to multiple US election systems & devices FOR YEARS. What to do now?” According to Rasmussen News, a poster going by the name of Kanekoa The Great posted a narrative.

Kaneoka recorded this in his report:
FBI Conceals Chinese Infiltration of U.S. Election Software
“This is a red Chinese communist op run against the United States by Chinese operatives, and it’s a disaster.”
Gregg Phillips and Catherine Engelbrecht discussed their 15-month involvement in what was described to them as a “counter-intelligence operation” with the Federal Bureau of Investigation into American election company Konnech Inc. in a live chat that was made public on Monday. They appeared together on “truethevote.locals.com.”
In order to operate elections in the US, Canada, and Australia, Konnech, a company based in East Lansing, Michigan, creates software to handle the poll workers, polling places, campaigns, assets, and supplies required.
Vote4LA.com, Vote4Detroit.com, and Vote4Boston.com were among the URLs that Konnech’s “PollChief” software application used to collect personally identifying information about poll workers. According to Phillips, the cyber analyst he had been working with discovered a “oddity” in these URLs in January 2021.
Phillips added, “We began to look at where do these URLs resolve to. We found that most of them resolve to one I.P. address and that I.P. address — the URL resolved in China,” said the researcher using Binary Edge, a piece of software used by businesses to discover and evaluate the danger of cyber intrusions. Phillips added.
“What we also learned in our review, apps.konnech.com [.net], resolved into this same URL in China, meaning that the application itself was residing in China,” he added.
“In Binary Edge, you can figure out what type of database they are using, their database port, and all the different services offered by ports in this particular application living in China. It turned out that not only did it live there, but they left the database open.”
He made sure to underline that this database “stored the personally identifying information of over a million Americans.”
After determining that “this was a major national security risk” and immediately took the information to the FBI.”
Another pertinent point is: Why does the FBI defend the CCP’s interference in US elections?
“More: The Konnech Chinese data hosting security issue was reported to the FBI by True the Vote in January 2021. The FBI ended up attacking True the Vote for identifying the issue which – here in October 2022 – is entirely unresolved & denied by legacy media,” according to Rasmussen.
Through thorough documentation of the CCP’s connections to the U.S. election technology, CEO Eugene Yu, which is clearly explained on his website, Kaneoka also covered.
Rasmussen criticized the lapdog media for the cover-up very harshly:
“Cornered by the Konnech arrest, legacy media amps up their lie that the 2020 elections were the most secure in American history. They have no proof now that the CCP had no access to our 2020 election systems. Quite the opposite. So they’re spraying their same old propaganda.”
