The Washington Post reports:
Federal and state investigators are examining an attempt to breach an Ohio county’s election network that bears striking similarities to an incident in Colorado earlier this year, when government officials helped an outsider gain access to the county voting system in an effort to find fraud. Data obtained in both instances were distributed at an August “cyber symposium” on election fraud hosted by MyPillow executive Mike Lindell.
The attempted breach in Ohio occurred on May 4 inside the county office of John Hamercheck (R), chairman of the Lake County Board of Commissioners. County records obtained by The Post through a public-records request show that Hamercheck, an engineer and retired police officer, used his security badge to swipe into the fifth floor offices multiple times during the roughly six-hour period when, according to the leaked data, the laptop was intermittently connected to the county network.
Read the full article. Lindell is claiming to know nothing about this. Yeah. Earlier this week the FBI raided the home of Colorado county clerk Tina Peters, who appeared at the above-cited Lindell event.
“the incidents in OH/CO point to an escalation in attacks on voting systems by those embracing Trump’s false claims of 2020 election fraud.
“Trump loyalists pushing for legal challenges are targeting local officials to gain access to election systems.” https://t.co/xkZvGsqmrj
