ATLANTA (AP) Ś Georgia's top elections official stood out by refusing help from theáDepartment of Homeland Securityálast August amid national concerns about the integrity of U.S. elections.

Republican Secretary of StateáBrian Kempácalled it an attempted federal takeover and insisted his office was already protecting Georgia's vote from hackers.

That stance earned him national media coverage ahead of his campaign for governor. But Kemp's assurances threatened to become a liability after new details emerged last month about major security mistakes at the center managing Georgia's election technology. It turns out that the contractor left critical data wide open for months on the internet, and that for the second time under Kemp's tenure, the personal information of every Georgia voter was exposed.

With his critics demanding accountability, Kemp announced Friday that he plans to bring the center's operations in-house within a year. His brief statement made no mention of the security flaws, saying "the ever-changing landscape of technology demands that we change with it."

1. Georgia

Georgia: "The Georgia Secretary of State's Office will provide the publicly available voter list," Press Secretary Candice L. Broce told CNN Friday. "As specified in Georgia law, the public list does not contain a registered voter's driver's license number, social security number, month and day of birth, site of voter registration, phone number, or email address."

3. Kemp's a good old boy, real estate developer from Athens, GA.

His reason for being in office is to steal Georgia elections for the GOP.
