Doc dump suggests Michigan sheriff warned Jim Jordan of foreigners hacking 2020 election | #hacking | #cybersecurity | #infosec | #comptia | #pentest | #hacker

A social media account has released a cache of documents that it claims to be from a Michigan sheriff who worked to overturn President Joe Biden’s 2020 victory in the state. The documents include sensitive information from Dominion Voting Systems.

The X account @SheriffLeaf uses a photo of Barry County Sheriff Dar Leaf, though it is not confirmed that Leaf, who has investigated the 2020 result for years, is actually connected to the account. It shared the documents in posts on Sunday and Monday.

The first post was a letter apparently from Leaf to House Judiciary Committee Chair Jim Jordan (R-OH).

“My office is investigating criminal acts related to elections in Barry County, the State of Michigan, and the United States. I am in possession of evidence involving voting machines,” Leaf wrote. “My office has come into possession of evidence that foreign nationals have accessed electronic voting machines in Michigan and other states.”

“This evidence demonstrates that electronic voting machines and electronic election systems used for elections in Michigan and throughout the United States are not secure and an immediate investigation is needed by Congress,” the letter said.

The letter claimed Dominion Voting System employees who were “Serbian foreign nationals” were “entering our election system while the votes were being counted and prior to certification.”

Leaf didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment from the Detroit News.

On Friday, Dominion Voting Systems filed an emergency motion asking for one of Leaf’s associates, attorney Stefanie Lambert, to be disqualified from representing Overstock CEO Patrick Byrne, whom the company is suing for defamation. Dominion claimed Lambert had provided privileged information to Leaf.

“Dominion seeks the court’s immediate assistance in addressing a flagrant and ongoing breach of this court’s order that has already, and will continue to, irreparably harm Dominion, including, but not limited to, jeopardizing the physical safety of Dominion employees,” Dominion’s motion said, according to The Detroit News.

The emails shared by the @SheriffLeaf account on Sunday included contact information for Dominion employees.

It was not immediately clear if Jordan responded to the letter.
