Homeland Security Inspector General Confirms DHS Tried To Hack Georgia Voter Rolls. Russians Seem To Be A Handy Foil.

Forget Russia: Did Obama Hack the Election?

Russia didn't hack our election, but Barack Obama may have.

As the Daily Caller's Richard Pollock reports, the Office of the Inspector 
General is investigating why the Department of Homeland Security hacked
 into Georgia's election system. 
John Roth, inspector general for DHS, wants to know why the agency broke

protocol on its way to 10 unprecedented attacks on the system overseen by

Georgia Secretary of State Brian Kemp — who is also one of the most vocal

critics about the Obama administration’s attempt to designate local and state

election machinery as part of federal “critical infrastructure.”

A Jan. 17 letter from Roth notified Kemp his office was officially “investigating

a series of ten alleged scanning events of the Georgia Secretary of State’s

network that may have originated from DHS-affiliated IP addresses.” A firewall

in Georgia’s system thwarted each attempt.

Former DHS Secretary Jeh Johnson and Kemp have clashed over a federal

government designation of election systems as  “critical infrastructure.”  Kemp

called it “political power play to federalize elections.”
This seems like yet another, last minute effort by the Obama administration to
 intimidate its critics. But it begs the question: What on earth is the Department
 of Homeland Security doing poking around in sovereign state election 
systems? Even more troubling, according to Pollock's report, is that DHS
 attacks occurred AFTER the election, but before the results were certified.

What do you think the Obama Administration was up to?
