According to a report from political news outlet, The National Pulse, a key-person behind the Dominion Voting System has an unexpected former employer—a Chinese company that’s accused of endangering U.S. national security.
The report comes as Dominion remains at the center of election controversy. The company is facing allegations of rigging election results. In a Twitter post, President Donald Trump quoted a report claiming, “Dominion deleted 2.7 million Trump votes nationwide.”
The company denies these claims.
Dominion is one of the largest voting machine providers in the United States.
More than 30 states use its software, including those with razor-thin margins like Georgia and Arizona.
The employee in question is named Andy Huang. His LinkedIn profile shows he holds an important role: manager of IT core infrastructure.
The title suggests he’s familiar with the chief infrastructure of the algorithms behind Dominion’s software.
Back in early 2000, Huang worked for China Telecom, a company that the Department of Defense says is owned or controlled by the Chinese military.
And this April, federal agencies including Homeland Security called for banning China Telecom, citing national security risks.
Several federal agencies, including the Departments of Justice and Homeland Security, on Nov. 26 called on the Federal Communications Commission to revoke China Telecom’s authorization to provide services in the United States.
Huang has since removed records of his employment at both Dominion and China Telecom from his LinkedIn profile.
