The DNC has claimed that they were hacked, no doubt hoping it was the Russians to further their agenda. However, this is not quite accurate… The Daily Wire reports:
The Democratic National Committee contacted the FBI on Wednesday claiming that someone tried to hack its voter database system this week, and, within hours, had to retract their claim.
The New York Times reported that officials described the alleged attempt to hack their system, Votebuilder, as an “aggressive” attack, claiming that the “hackers set up a fake page that mimicked the party’s login page for its voter-registration website, a tactic that could gather names, passwords and other credentials of those using the voter database.”
Bob Lord, chief security officer for the Democratic National Committee, said, “This attempt is further proof that there are constant threats as we head into midterm elections, and we must remain vigilant in order to prevent future attacks.”
Late on Wednesday, Democrats were forced to retract their claims after new information came to light and now say that the alleged “hacking attempt” was nothing more than a “test.”
With this kind of leadership, can they truly expect to win the midterms?
