Meh. 'Seems that most of the "Red" states are pwned by the Russians.

Illinois was hacked in the 2016 election. Hard to say at this time whether they've taken adequate steps against additional hacks, tho they at least have promised that they're "making plans" and "taking steps" and most of their voting machines use paper ballots.

Arizona was also hacked in 2016. They took some machines offline for forensic examination and found that some officials had successfully been phished for credentials. No word about remediation for other elections.

Georgia was apparently hacked so badly that they wiped all of the election data and backups before everyone involved in the election could be arrested or impeached.

You'll be much happier with Putin's choice for senator and governor than if you had to choose who would get your vote.



Saint Cloud, Minnesota, where the weather is wonderful even when it isn't.

Trump is (supposedly) imposing sanctions against Russia over the London nerve gas attack that killed two people.

This massive Florida attack merits some big time sanction boosts. Wanna bet he won't even mention it because he's such good buddies with Putin? Despite the fact that's it's a direct attack on America.

Nelson and Rubio are blowing nebulous, vague smoke. State Senators would never be the vehicles of this kind of information to local election officials. They need to put up or shut up.

"The Florida Department of State has received zero information from Senator Nelson or his staff that support his claims," agency spokeswoman Sarah Revell said in a statement. "Additionally, the Department has received no information from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, the Federal Bureau of Investigation or the Florida Department of Law Enforcement
