It turns out the backstory to Brian Kemp’s accusation against the Georgia Democratic party is about as stupid as you could imagine.
IN FACT: 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 at the link below.
The gist is this. There was a security vulnerability in the system Kemp’s office is responsible for securing. His office was alerted to 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.
