Officials say DHS rejected plan to shield election officials from harassment: report

The Department of Homeland Security’s (DHS) Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) turned down a multimillion-dollar proposal by a federally funded nonprofit to protect election officials from harassment ahead of November’s midterms, CNN reported on Tuesday.

Citing multiple people familiar with the matter, the outlet reported the proposal would track foreign influence activity and increase resources for reporting misinformation and disinformation surrounding the midterm elections, but officials raised concerns about the initiative being seen as partisan.

DHS shut down its Disinformation Governance Board in May after receiving condemnations from Republicans, some of whom compared the effort to the dystopian novel “1984.”

TVNL Comment: Partisan? Protecting election workers is partisan?  Governing disinformation is dystopian?  We're done for, folks. There is no right or wrong.  There is no respect for the law.  There is only power.  Only greed and power.  Democracy is dying.  It might already be dead.
