Just after last month’s election the State of Georgia detected a cyber-attack on the Secretary of State’s computer system. This is the same system that maintains voter records and corporate information.
The attack came from the criminal organization known as the federal Department of Homeland Security.
Brian Kemp, Georgia’s Secretary of State sent a letter to Jeh Johnson of DHS demanding to know why the feds attempted the break in. He also pointed out that this attempt amounts to a felony under 18 U.S.C. 1030. Or, it would if attempted by anyone else.
It’s interesting that the department nominally created to protect the homeland instead chooses to attack individual states. By the way, their attempted penetration failed – thus confirming this was a government operation.
