Letter to the Editor

Cyber Symposium

Monday, August 9, 2021

Today I took some time to call our Iowa lawmakers who voted to certify the 2020 elections. I asked them whether they would be attending Michael Lindell's Cyber Symposium in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, on Aug. 10-12. Michael has invited cyber experts, media and lawmakers to review the voting machines and the packet captures for the entire election. These packet captures are like computer fingerprints and cannot be changed. They prove foreign and domestic interference in our elections. Anyone who can disprove Mr. Lindell's information can collect $5 million.

I have not heard of one Iowa lawmaker that is speaking about our stolen elections or is planning to attend the Cyber Symposium. I would think that the integrity of our elections would be a top priority as they lament the many, many new policy changes President Biden has made.

Earlier this year, Senator Grassley sent me a letter that stated “the claims put forth by Mr. Lindell are false. There was no widespread conspiracy to deprive President Trump reelection though the manipulation of votes.” If Senator Grassley indeed has this kind of rock solid information, I would ask that he share it with the rest of us. He could also share it with Mr. Lindell and collect $5 million. If he does not we are left to wonder why.
