Congressmen Demand Investigation into Department of Homeland Security Hacking Georgia’s Election Systems – ZeroHedge
While the media and the government are focused on the alleged ‘Russian Hacks’, of which numerous cyber security experts have called wildly inaccurate, Reps. Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah) and Jody Hice (R-Ga.) are demanding answers to a hack that was perpetrated by the American government on the State of Georgia.
Reps. Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah) and Jody Hice (R-Ga.) sent a letter to Department of Homeland Security Inspector General John Roth on Thursday demanding an official investigation into alleged attempts by DHS to hack Georgia’s firewall.
“We request you investigate Secretary Kemp’s allegations that the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) conducted unauthorized scans of his office’s computer network,” the letter states.
Specifically, Chaffetz and Hice want Roth to investigate whether or not DHS “conduct[ed] an unauthorized scan of the Georgia Secretary of State’s computer network(s)? If so, who authorized the scan(s)? Has the Department conducted an unauthorized scan(s) of any other state’s systems?” and “if so, which states did DHS scan without authorization?”
This is the only actual hacking that occurred during the election. Unsurprisingly, it was from Obama’s DHS.
I’ve been told that George is one of five states who detected an intrusion into their voting machines from DHS. Georgia is the only state to publicize their intrusion.
