SAVE THIS DATE! MAY 7, 2020 7PM-8P MINDIVISIBLE ST JOHNS GENERAL ZOOM MEETING WE ARE HONORED TO HAVE ION SANCHO, FORMER SUPERVISOR OF ELECTIONS FOR LEON COUNTY FLAND LONG TIME EXPERT AND ADVOCATE FOR ELECTION SECURITY AS OUR GUEST SPEAKER.
In November 1988, Sancho was elected to his first term as the Supervisor of Electionsfor Leon County, Florida. He ran and was re-elected in 1992, 1996, 2000, and 2004,serving his fifth term as of January 2, 2005. He was unopposed in each election since 1992.
In the 2000 presidential recount, Sancho (No Party Affiliation) was chosen to lead theFlorida hand count of ballots in dispute in Miami-Dade County. The U.S. Supreme Courtstopped the hand count in a 7-2 vote just as it got underway. Later the Court ruled 5–4 that no constitutionally valid recount could be completed by a December 12 “safe harbor”deadline.
In 2005, Sancho invited Bev Harris, founder of Black Box Voting, Kathleen Wynne, Black Box Voting Associate Director, Harri Hursti, computer programmer and securityexpert, Dr. Hugh Thompson, application security expert and Ph.D. in math, Susan Bernecker,
former Republican candidate for New Orleans city council and Susan Pynchon, Director ofFlorida Fair Elections Coalition to Tallahassee. There, they performed what is now knownas the Hursti Hack which became the center piece of an HBO documentary titledHacking Democracy.
Most recently, he is prominently featured in an ominously fascinating HBO documentaryabout cyber-manipulation of elections. Sancho not only conducted clean balloting locally,in an era when Florida elections were a staple of monologues of late-night TV comics butwas nationally recognized as an expert on complex computer systems needed for reliabletallies.
The HBO special is titled “Kill Chain: The Cyber War on America’s Elections,” https://youtu.be/cPoS5Rms_Vc
The producers thought this information was so important to the public, after the HBO
screening, they made it available for free on YouTube. It is must watch video.
