The Detroit News reports:
Michigan State Police are investigating how a piece of election equipment was sold on eBay after being donated to a Goodwill Industries thrift store in Cadillac. Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson’s office said in a statement that someone tried to sell a voter assist terminal, a device used to help voters with disabilities mark their ballots.
An Uber driver in Ohio bought the Dominion voting machine in an online auction for $7.99 from Goodwill Industries after the machine was dropped off at Goodwill’s thrift store in Cadillac. The Ohio man then turned around and sold the machine for $1,200 to a cyber security expert in Connecticut, who alerted election officials in Michigan.
