A Dominion voting machine was purchased for $7.99 on Goodwill’s website and sold on eBay for $1,200 last month.
Authorities are now investigating how the machine ended up for sale in the first place.
The machine was first purchased by Ohio-based Uber driver Ean Hutchison, who resells tech items on eBay.
Though the machine was only listed as “AVALUE TECHNOLOGY Touch Panel SID-15V-Z37-B1R,” Hutchinson knew that it was a voting machine.
“Own a piece of history!” Hutchison’s eBay listing read, according to a report from CNN. “This voting machine was one of thousands used in the 2020 United States presidential election and included in one of the many lawsuits against Dominion that were thrown out.”
Hutchinson started the bidding at $250, but included an option to skip the auction and purchase it for $1,200.
It was purchased for the “Buy It Now” price by Harri Hursti, a Connecticut cybersecurity expert, who was in HBO’s documentary “Kill Chain: The Cyber War on America’s Elections.”
