Probably the liberal media will not report this. There has been reports that indicate that the Indiana state electoral system, endured thousands of hacking attempts in the election season. The interesting part is that neither Trump nor Russian hacker were involved in that.
The would-be hackers were actually part of the Department of Homeland Security under President Obama. And this happened while Mike Pence was still governor.
From the Daily Caller:
Department of Homeland Security (DHS) officials tried to hack Indiana’s state electoral system with at least 14,800 “scans” or hits between Nov. 1, 2016, to Dec. 16, 2016, The Daily Caller News Foundation Investigative Group has learned.
The attacks are the second confirmed IT scanning assault by DHS officials against states that resisted then-President Barack Obama’s attempt to increase federal involvement in state and local election systems by designating them as “critical infrastructure” for national security.
Members of the National Association of Secretaries of State voted Saturday at their winter meeting to oppose the designation. They are asking President Donald Trump to overturn it.
Former Indiana Gov. Mike Pence was also Trump’s vice presidential-elect during much of the period covered by the DHS scans of the Indiana system.
It the last days of his presidency, Obama started the “Russian hackers” conspiracy theory, trying to influence the electoral process and hiding his involvement in the process. He said that “all Americans should be alarmed.”
He was right about that. Americans should be alarmed by this breach by the administration.
Georgia claims that although they declined ‘help’ from the administration about the election system, the DHS made “hacking attempts” against their system. And that was not all.
The Idaho Secretary of State Lawrence Denney, said that he believes that the DHS might have attempted to hack its state election website around Nov. 8.
The Indiana Secretary of State, Connie Lawson, expressed concern, saying, “We’re taking the matter under consideration. We have sent letters to our congressional folks, our governor, and others to make them aware this happened. I’m very concerned, very concerned.”
