BREAKING: "Russia maintained access to multiple US state or local election electoral boards" (sic) [View all]


This line from the DHS report is something I think MiniPoot, M$M and forum FUD is going to react to once brought to attention; it was... NOT JUST... the DNC and Clinton emails the Russians had access too

Russian intelligence obtained and maintained access to elements of multiple US state or local
electoral boards.

There's many ways to use the state level electoral board data to tilt an election other than affecting vote tallying including registration purging like the KGOP did in 2000. Voter tallying is just one way to affect an election and like in 2000 there wasn't tons of people reporting their registration revoked on election day, the votes just didn't count.

DHS assesses that the types of systems Russian actors targeted or compromised were not involved in vote tallying.

Its RATIONAL to NOT believe that Russia just broke into state level election assets... looked around at data and said; well... nothing here to see... lets all go home without changing a thing.

Like someone breaking into a bank full of cash, looking around and going out of the bank without taking a dime...

I'd love to read the FUD on this

Bottom line and another rational conclusion; due to Comey, voter suppression and Russia having access to state level election assets that...
