Russia DID Hack Into State Voting Databases


http://thehill.com/policy/cybersecur...-states-report

Putin is already planning to meddle (again) in our upcoming 2018 midterm elections.

Did they promise to send cash to the people they found on the voter lists if they voted for Trump?

What exactly did they do with the list of voters they, whoever "they" is, got from “an exceptionally small number of them were actually successfully penetrated.”?

"Greetings Comrade. You have been randomly chosen to receive a free bottle of excellent Russian vodka with proof you voted for Donald J. Trump."

I got an email today saying I had been selected to be a shopper and if I send them my contact info "they" will send me a cashiers check to buy a few things at a store then send the remaining cash on to the next "shopper". Is this the Russians?

They can try... As usual.
They've been trying for decades and decades.

If they were successful, it is our own fault.

Lefty mindset. . .

If the Dems win. Even win a few seats, there was little to no meddling.

If the republicans win a super majority, there was meddling. Euge meddling. World class meddling.

Already debunked as being a factor in legitimizing elections... And already shown to disenfranchise large groups of people.

Honorable Deplorable
Agree with the id

Voter id and a constant checking with a database. If caught trying to vote twice or illegally a $10k fine is coming your way. Multiple times will land youngin a federal prison for voter tampering


Bull kenny......
Cost of an ID from the state.....$0
Cost it takes for people to get off there butts and get one...$0

There isn't a reaon to get one. People need it to get prescriptions, to get financial aid, food stamps, WIC and other government help. So why not for voting?

No id no vote. The only way to have fair elections. That why the Dems are against vote id but want open borders.

Pretty deplorable when a presidential candidate openly encourages a foreign power to hack into confidential information against his opponent.

Downright treasonous when he tries to cover up his campaign's collusion with those efforts.

It's a shame the democrats aren't focused on how to stop it.

Not to mention is was pretty trivial and had no impact on voting or voting machines.

That would be bad if it actually happened.

And exactly why we have an active investigation looking into this. Guilty pleas have already been secured.

That is a solution in search of a problem. Zero evidence of significant vote fraud exists.

Russian meddling in our elections? Lots of evidence. The republicans have done squat about it.

So you have no problem with foreign countries interfering in our elections? Nothing should be done about it? Somehow I thing you all would be singing a different tune if Hillary won and Russians had interfered.
