Hacktivist group claims to have foiled Karl Rove's Election Day plans

We Received A Letter

On November 12th, we received a letter from “The Protectors,” apparently a group of white hat cyber sleuths, mentioning our reward and stating that two months ago, they began monitoring the “digital traffic of one Karl Rove, a disrespecter of the Rule of Law, knowing that he claimed to be Kingmaker while grifting vast wealth from barons who gladly handed him gold to anoint another King while looking the other way.”

“The Protectors” said that they had identified the digital structure of Rove’s operation and of ORCA, a Republican get out the vote software application. After finding open “doors” in the systems, they created a “password protected firewall” called “The Great Oz,” and installed it on servers that Rove planned to use on election night to re-route and change election results “from three states.”

The letter indicated that “ORCA Killer” was launched at 10am EST and “The Great Oz” at 8pm EST on November 6th. “The Protectors” watched as ORCA crashed and failed throughout Election Day. They watched as Rove’s computer techs tried 105 times to penetrate “The Great Oz” using different means and passwords.

Finally, they issued the following warning to Mr. Rove: don’t do it again or they would turn over the evidence to Wikileaks founder Julian Assange.

1. Don't know whether this is legit

but it's still satisfying to contemplate. I'm imagining a frenzy of efforts to cheat, all failing, and the look of panic in Rove's eyes as he realizes he's been taken to the showers like a new toy on Cell block 69.

2. Even if it's not true, it is a clever way to point out that Karl Rove

is an election thief and his own behavior on Fox definitely could be interpreted as someone who was certain of the results before they came in and couldn't accept, even as the numbers were changing behind him, that his 'expectations' had been completely foiled.

And the beauty of it is Rove cannot deny this happened without being asked to prove it.

If nothing else it is a fun way to highlight their efforts to steal elections and practically dare them to try to defend themselves.
