Tech Firm Told The FBI It Didn’t Store U.S. Poll Workers’ Data On Chinese Servers, As L.A. DA Alleges



Either the FBI or the Los Angeles District Attorney’s office flubbed a major investigation into the election poll workers data company Konnech, whose CEO Eugene Yu was arrested on Tuesday, or a deeper probe remains ongoing, details from a bond hearing held earlier today in a Michigan court suggest.

In a press release on Tuesday, L.A. County District Attorney George Gascon announced that Yu had been taken into custody on “suspicion of theft of personal identifying information” by the Meridian Township Police Department, near Yu’s home in central Michigan. The L.A. County’s D.A. Office, which is seeking Yu’s extradition to Los Angeles, explained in its announcement of Yu’s arrest that the CEO’s business, Konnech, “distributes and sells its proprietary PollChief software” that is used to manage election workers’ confidential information.

“Under its $2.9 million, five-year contract with the county, Konnech was supposed to securely maintain the data and that only United States citizens and permanent residents have access to it,” the press release noted. But “District Attorney investigators found that in contradiction to the contract, information was stored on servers in the People’s Republic of China.”
