Company debunks conspiracy theory that its server showed a landslide for Trump

"I NEED to BELIEVE!!! D Wolfe will post this as fact..."

An elections security company has had to pour cold water on conspiracy theories about it and the 2020 Presidential election that have been circulated about it by right-wing media and a Republican congressman.

As President Donald Trump's allies attempt to attack the integrity of the election, some prominent right-wing figures and websites have homed in on the company, Scytl, because of the products it provided to some US clients.

As with many conspiracy theories, this one has different permutations and explanations. But the basic idea of the most extreme belief around this theory is this: The US Army or maybe the intelligence community raided (there was no raid) the Frankfurt, Germany offices of a company (that has no Frankfurt offices) that tallies all votes in US elections (it does not do any tallying of votes, much less conduct any official tally of all votes in the US, which no single company does).

Data on a server seized in that raid (no server was seized, there was no raid) showed that votes were switched (they weren't) and that Trump had secured a massive landslide of 410 Electoral College votes, winning California (which hasn't gone for a Republican since 1988 and which Hillary Clinton won by 30 percentage points in 2016) and Rhode Island (which has gone for a Republican only once since 1976) but somehow not Colorado (which was considered a swing state as recently as 2008).

Rep. Louie Gohmert, a Republican from Texas, gave a major boost to the baseless conspiracy theory during a Thursday interview on Newsmax, the right-wing television channel that has been aggressively promoting the false notion that Trump really won the election.

Gohmert said during the interview he was "told there was a tweet in German" that indicated Scytl had been raided.

Gohmert's comments were picked up in right-wing media, with websites like The Gateway Pundit posting about them and adding new elements to the conspiracy theory.
