More on Kemp Scam - By Josh Marshall



November 4, 2018 4:55 pm

It turns out the backstory to Brian Kemp’s accusation against the Georgia Democratic party is about as stupid as you could imagine. According to this report, a voter found the vulnerability, alerted an attorney for the plaintiff’s in one of the on-going lawsuits against Kemp’s office. That lawyer alerted the attorneys for Kemp’s office. There were apparently a couple lines of communication. See the details here. But the gist is this. There was a security vulnerability in the system Kemp’s is responsible for securing. His office was alerted the vulnerability. Then instead of focusing on fixing it he put out a press release accusing the state Democratic party of trying to “hack” the state system. Shocking and awful and about as bad as you can imagine.

1. C'mon Stacey!

Beat this Asshole! Get him out of the government of Georgia for good and always!

Of course, I want Dems to take the House, the Senate, and every governorship, but there are a few special ones on my list to lose and Kemp is one of them. Scott Walker and Rick Scott too.

2. The real issue is now the FBI/NSA can prevent the GOP from exploiting their own back door.

Meaning that the GOP can not win a fair election in Georgia.

15. Can, but why would they?

FBI is run by a trump appointee who used to be a Bush appointee.
So the the NSA.

We need the numbers to overcome electoral tampering, we can not rely on a fair vote to carry the day while the RW is in charge.

3. Read the link! It explains the whole sorry sequence

And it explains why Georgia's system is wide-open to hacking. The Dems found out about the vulnerability and tried to alert Kemp -- and he turned around and accuses THEM.

6. it would be predictable for R-cons to try to frame dems for what they do- expect more especially

if the senate comes down to some close races, or if they are close in the house, and they think they can keep them by doing some hanging chad bullshit, etc

10. Kemp is inept

their system was not even password protected for over a year.

And this little tidbit.

According to three experts who reviewed the security features of the My Voter Page and voter registration website — not just its vulnerabilities — Kemp would have no way of knowing if the site had ever been hacked or by whom. PCC, the private-sector company responsible for managing Georgia’s voter registration and online voter registration systems, seems to be at fault for the poorly designed site.

14. It's always when races are this close that the Republicans pull some dirty tricks so they can steal.

 

Let's not forget that Kemp never stepped down as Secretary of State, and is still overseeing this election. Republicans can not win by votes alone. With Georgia's election system so vulnerable .. get ready folks.

21. He's building a pre-election (voting day) case for R(s) losing the GA election.

If they lose it will be because hackers stole the election.

If they win it won't be because they (GOP) deliberately suppressed voters and there won't be one additional mention of democratic hacking.

GET OUT AND VOTE

Send these republicans packing.

24. Kemp needs to be retired - how about starting Wednesday?

Stacey Abrams is the far superior candidate in every way. And I'm not just saying that because I'm a Democrat, it's the objective truth. Go Stacey - put Kemp into an early retirement! When you become Governor, please have him investigated for malfeasance.

25. But the sad thing is, that in a close race, it could be a factor... ie...Comey.

Especially for any fence sitters who may have contemplated switching their votes just this one time because they are uneasy with Trump. Then a last minute story re-affirming Democrat corruption for them. And this time they are screwing with my election!!! Some will hear the truth and it will register in their tiny brains, but too late.

For Republicans its all about winning NOW, and and dealing with the fallout later.

his illegal activity.

There needs to be a complete and thorough investigation into Brian Kemp's office for corruption.
