While Obama and Hillary were yelling about the Russian election hacks new information is surfacing that shows Barack Obama’s administration was involved with their own form of election treachery.
The Daily Caller is reporting that the Obama administration tried to hack into the election system in Indiana while Mike Pence was governor.
Wow this is a shocker and needs some serious investigation. Go ahead and look at Russia if you must Congress, but domestic interference is potentially a far bigger problem.
Department of Homeland Security agents tried to access to Indiana’s voting system with at least 14,800 “scans” or hits.
The hacking attempt occurred from November 1, 2016 to December 16, 2016. This marks the second confirmed IT scanning/attempted hacking by DHS against a state while Obama was in office.
Indiana Secretary of State Connie Lawson said,
“We know that between November 1 and December 16 we were scanned with about 14,800 scans, nearly 15,000 different times.”
The state’s IT team traced the intruder to a DHS computer’s IP address. The same DHS unit attempted 10 times in 2016 to hack into the Georgia electoral system.
Lawson said, “despite the scale of the scans, the DHS efforts to attack its election system was unsuccessful, our voter registration system was not penetrated.”
She added there was “one slight penetration on an election website that was actually old and out of date, so it didn’t go anywhere.”
