Election conspiracy theorists focused on one man in Colorado. His life will never be the same

Colorado Public Radio: Eric Coomer has been living in hiding since one week after the 2020 presidential election ended.

He’s director of product strategy and security for Denver-based Dominion Voting Systems, which has found itself at the center of numerous conspiracy theories about election theft. President Donald Trump has falsely claimed that Dominion machines fraudulently switched votes to President-elect Joe Biden. And some of Trump’s supporters have come to focus on Coomer as the supposed mastermind behind a plot to steal the election.  

“I actually am in fear for my safety,” Coomer said recently, speaking by video chat from a secret location. “I’m in fear for my family’s safety. These are real, tangible things coming out of these baseless accusations.”
