A recently filed whistleblower lawsuit against the election data firm Konnech Inc. and its founder Eugene Yu includes detailed allegations from a former employee that corroborate True the Vote’s claim that Konnech transferred American poll workers’ data to China. The whistleblower’s allegations raise more questions about the FBI’s involvement in the investigation of Konnech and the Los Angeles County district attorney’s office’s decision to drop its criminal case against Yu.
In a sworn civil complaint filed late last month in a Michigan state court, a former employee of Konnech, Grant Bradley, provided an insider’s tale of the operations of the election data firm. According to the verified complaint, Konnech provides “election logistic software” to 32 clients in North America, using “developers, designers and coders” who “are all Chinese nationals based out of Wuhan, China.”
Bradley claims he “worked with the Chinese programmers on a daily basis,” and that he “witnessed customer’s data (specifically poll watcher information) being made accessible to foreign nationals from China.” When he raised concerns about foreign nationals having access to the data, Bradley alleges his supervisors said that “everyone [other software companies like Microsoft and Apple] was doing it.”
Until September 2022, however, Bradley claims he “did not know the full extent of the information provided to the Chinese nationals.” In September of 2022, however, Konnech sued True the Vote for publicly accusing the Michigan-based company of storing poll workers’ data on servers in China.
