Election Hackers Raise Concerns – 6-23-17 – Trump By Trump by T. Rump
I do not know if my computer is hacked or not and I suspect most election officials don’t know either.
But we must get to the bottom of Russian interference.
It goes beyond not being able to imagine that anyone voted for Donald Trump in 2016. It goes to whether our voting machines can be hacked and voter info can be used by anyone to affect any election at any level of government.
Personally. I believe there should be a paper copy of our votes and they should be verified by hand count in any election.
The hacking of state and local election databases in 2016 was more extensive than previously reported.
A successful attempt to alter voter information did occur.
Theft of thousands of voter records that contain private information did occur.
A manipulation of voter data in a county database did occur, but the alterations were apparently discovered and rectified.
Congressional investigators are probing whether any of this stolen private information made its way to the Trump campaign and was used by the Trump campaign.
Trump’s press secretary, Sean Spicer, referred questions regarding the investigations to Trump’s legal team, which did not respond to requests for comment.
Why does President Trump need a legal team on election questions if He and his staff are innocent of any wrong doing?
The real fear here is what can and what will Russian or other hackers do in future elections.
Twenty-one states saw hacker intrusions last year. We can assume Russia tried to intrude in all 50 states. Concern about the public confidence in the integrity of the electoral system is real.
