    Ga. finds evidence homeland security tried to hack election system

    WASHINGTON (AP) - The U.S. state of Georgia is accusing the Homeland Security Department of apparently trying to hack its election systems.

    Georgia Secretary of State Brian P. Kemp said in a letter Thursday a computer traced back to the agency in Washington tried unsuccessfully to penetrate the state office's firewall one week after the presidential election.

    Kemp sought details, including who might have authorized the activity and whether other states might have been scanned without authorization.

    DHS is reviewing the letter and did not immediately comment.

    Georgia was one of two states that did not accept the federal department's help to secure its election-related systems.

    The letter says the system holds personal information on more than 6.5 million state residents.

    Kemp sits on the DHS Election Infrastructure Cybersecurity Working Group.

    It might be one of those secret warrants that's so classified that the spooks don't even know what it's for? If y'all were innocent they wouldn't be shaking down the whole state of Georgia. It's for the children.

    It is simple. The right hand does not know what the left hand is doing.
