Man Reportedly Buys Stolen Dominion Machine On eBay


A Connecticut computer programmer allegedly bought a stolen Dominion voting machine on eBay.

Harri Hursti last week bought a Dominion voting machine off eBay for $1,200.

After Hursti received the voting machine which was still in the box, he then contacted local authorities to investigate whether the machine was stolen or not.

Investigators were the able to trace the machine back to A Goodwill where the machine was sold for $7.99

But according to Hursti the authorities never followed up on his call and have never taken the time to even look at the machine.

The Daily Mail had these bizarre details to add:

The voting rights activist who bought an allegedly stolen Dominion voting machine on eBay is still waiting for authorities to contact him about the purchase.

Last week, Harri Hursti, a Connecticut-based computer programmer and activist, said that he bought the machine on the online marketplace for $1200.

He went on to say that he contacted authorities in Michigan, where the machine originated, to tell them about his purchase. Hursti told CNN at the time that the machine was still sealed in its box in his home.

On Sunday, Hursti told exclusively that the box is still in his home and that he hasn’t heard from authorities since last Monday.

The Finnish native explained that if the machine is stolen, as is claimed by Michigan officials, it would be first ever stolen voting machine in US history.

Hursti said that while there is a documented history of voting machines being left behind in places or not being picked up after elections, there is no record of one being stolen.

Detroit News dropped these details:

Michigan State Police are investigating how a piece of election equipment was sold on eBay after being donated to a Goodwill Industries thrift store in Cadillac.

Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson’s office said in a statement that someone tried to sell a voter assist terminal, a device used to help voters with disabilities mark their ballots.

An Uber driver in Ohio bought the Dominion voting machine in an online auction for $7.99 from Goodwill Industries after the machine was dropped off at Goodwill’s thrift store in Cadillac, CNN reported Wednesday.

The Ohio man then turned around and sold the machine for $1,200 to a cyber security expert in Connecticut, who alerted election officials in Michigan, CNN reported.
