Georgia's Brian Kemp Accuses Democrats Of 'Potential Cyber Crimes' Ahead Of Election

07 November 2018

Georgia Secretary of State and Republican gubernatorial candidate Brian Kemp launched a probe into his state's Democratic Party over what he says was an attempted hack of the voter registration system.

If elected, Abrams would be the first non-white, non-male governor of Georgia and the first female African American governor in United States history.

Abrams' campaign has brought in a handful of high profile celebrities including Will Ferrell and Oprah Winfrey to campaign for her in the week leading up to Election Day.

"Brian Kemp is an incredible fighter and a tireless champion for the people and for the values of Georgia, and he was with me right from the beginning", President Trump told his supporters before warning their "Second Amendment is gone" if Abrams is elected.

And in many cases, county poll workers can help solve problems on the spot, Kemp's office said. Strong October jobs report MORE for the Democratic Party's presidential nomination.

He announced his investigation shortly after the investigative journalism website WhoWhatWhy reported that the state Democratic Party had discovered a vulnerability in Georgia's voter registration system that could allow a person to gain access to and potentially alter millions of records.

Kemp is running for governor of Georgia against Democrat Stacey Abrams.

After months of national headlines about possible voter suppression from a number of Kemp-approved measures, 44 percent of voters in the state (mostly Democrats) say they it's "likely" or "very likely" that many votes will not be counted on Election Day.

The move calls to mind the ban on exports slapped on ZTE after it broke sanctions on sales to Iran and then lied about it. Fujian Jinhua and its Taiwanese partner collaborated to lure Micron employees to steal company secrets, Micron claimed.

"This is yet another example of abuse of power by an unethical secretary of state", Rebecca DeHart, executive director of the Georgia Democratic Party, said on Sunday. While they prepare for tomorrow, the race between Stacey Abrams and Brian Kemp is heating up.

Last week Oprah shared clips of her and her team canvassing homes in Georgia on Thursday to urge residents to get out and vote for Democratic Abrams. In a highly unusual situation, Kemp is in the position of overseeing the election that will decide his state's highest office, and has faced criticism over how it has been handled. If neither Abrams nor Kemp wins a majority of the vote on Tuesday, their battle continues to a December runoff election. She wants citizens to vote for her because her campaign is simply "better". They've freaked out about voter fraud to invalidate the results of elections before, and now maybe they'll agree to acknowledge the conclusions of several US intelligence agencies and decide that hacking is a problem if and when the election doesn't go conservatives' way.

According to AP interviews and records released by the Georgia Democratic Party, a lawyer for election-security advocates, David Cross, notified both the Federal Bureau of Investigation and Kemp's counsel Saturday morning that a citizen had alerted him to the flaw. In 2016, after the state's servers were compromised, Kemp was the only secretary of state to refuse help from the federal government to see if Russians had hacked the servers. "And I want you to know that their blood has seeped into my DNA, and I refuse to let their sacrifices be in vain".
