Voting Machine Company In Serious Legal Trouble, Accused Of…

Smartmatic, a popular elections technology company, is currently facing a major controversy as the Department of Justice (DOJ) has filed money laundering charges against four of its executives. The accusations state that these individuals transferred $4 million to former Filipino election official Andres Bautista, in violation of US money laundering laws. This has raised suspicions about possible bribery schemes between Smartmatic and Bautista in relation to the company securing contracts for the Philippine Presidential elections back in 2016.

In response to the allegations, Bautista has denied any involvement in this bribery scandal and claims that he did not ask for or receive any money from Smartmatic or any other entity. However, it is still unclear whether any wrongdoing has occurred on the part of Smartmatic or Bautista. The company’s spokesperson has also denied the claims, stating that they have never won a project through illegal means and that these accusations have no connection to their security and integrity measures in elections.

The drama only grows as representatives for President Donald Trump accuse Joe Biden of being responsible for the situation with Smartmatic due to his past involvement with foreign countries, such as Venezuela and the Philippines – where Smartmatic has secured contracts before. This only adds fuel to the fire and raises more questions about the company’s practices and their role in U.S elections.

To add to the controversy, Smartmatic has filed a lawsuit against Fox News and other media outlets for spreading false and defamatory claims against the company during the aftermath of the 2020 presidential race. This has further raised concerns about the validity and trustworthiness of our elections, especially as foreign countries can potentially hold influence over them based on their own national interests.

Despite no set trial date yet, these accusations and lawsuits will undoubtedly have a significant impact on the perception of our electoral process. It is crucial for these allegations to be thoroughly investigated and for the truth to be uncovered, as the integrity of our elections is essential for our democracy to function properly.


Regardless of political affiliations, it is important for us to have a fair and transparent electoral system. With the rise of technology and foreign influence, it is imperative for companies like Smartmatic to be held accountable for their actions and for our government to ensure the legitimacy of our elections. Only then can we have confidence in the foundation of our democracy and protect it from external forces trying to manipulate it.
