Hackers tried to access South Carolina's voter registration system almost 150,000 times on election day.

Courtesy of Yahoo News:  

Hackers tried to access South Carolina's voter registration system almost 150,000 times on Election Day alone, a new report from the state's Election Commission has revealed. 

The report plays into a larger pattern of attempted hacking in the 2016 election, in which the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) says more than 20 US states were targeted. Intelligence officials believe much of the election meddling was carried out by Russian hackers.

They keep using the phrase "tried to access" but I am starting to think that they almost had to have been successful at least a couple of times.

One does not attempt 150,000 times unless you managed to penetrate a security system somewhere using the same or a similar approach.

And if they were successful just how many votes might they have altered for Donald Trump?

Not that they needed to do much since the Republicans had already managed to purge as many as 22 million eligible Democratic voters from the system before the election:

In the name of voter fraud, 1.1 million voters were removed from the registration lists through voter purging in the months before the 2016 election, and 21 million eligible voters were removed from the polls through voter ID restrictions. 

22 million eligible voters from Democratic voting blocs were removed from the registration lists and polling booths in the name of voter fraud. 

22 million.

Go ahead, tell me again that the Russians and Republicans were not working together.

    You're an idiot. Most of those people removed were felons or dead.

    22 million. Repeat it 22 million.

    What an idiot.

    1. Is that what they told you comrade?

    2. No, they weren't, you moron.

      That doesn't even count the absentee ballots Florida didn't send out on request or simply "lost."

      Yet somehow Hillary Clinton still did win the popular vote. I guess she could have won by 25 million instead of just 3 if this malfeasance would not have been afoot.

      Still, it wouldn't have mattered but it would be a lot more fun to throw in the deplorable's faces rather than just kicking his ass by only 3 million ;-)

    Russia wins the Cold War without firing a shot. So when will SkyNet become self aware so it can just finish the job.

    Playing devil's advocate here. Voter ID restrictions prohibit both R and D voters from participating, and yes, in predominately D districts this will hit the Democrats hardest, but voter ID is voter ID and whomever hasn't one cannot vote, regardless of party.

      If voter ID is implemented then it needs to be implemented fairly! You can't tell people with student ID's, Military ID's, State ID's, Driver License ID's, Liquor ID's or whatever other formal ID's are out there, "that isn't good enough." There must be a system in place, well before election day, made available to all FOR FREE, that would ensure everyone had access to obtaining what would be considered the proper form of ID. It's obstructionist, unethical and unfair to turn people away from voting period. I'm a dyed in wool Democrat and I don't care who you vote for but every American should have access to the voting process!!!!


Don't feed the trolls!
It just goes directly to their thighs.
