House Members Plan Election Hacking Demonstration | WHAT REALLY HAPPENED


House Members Plan Election Hacking Demonstration

Two House members are planning to host a demonstration of a voting system hacking next week.

Republican Rep. John Katko of New York and Democratic Rep. Mike Quigley of Illinois are leading the event on Wednesday, Sept. 26, which will feature the director of the University of Michigan’s Center for Computer Security and Society, J. Alex Halderman.

“Last year, the American people learned that Russia targeted as many as 39 state election systems in the lead-up to the 2016 elections. These malicious hackers were able to access databases containing sensitive information such as names, dates of birth, driver’s licenses, and partial Social Security numbers,” Katko and Quigley said in a joint statement. “While we were fortunate that the Russians did not tamper with the vote counting process this time around, there is no guarantee that they will not try in 2018 or beyond.”

The hacking of the 2016 election came from a lot closer than Russia!
