In a recent posting I hypothesized that the voting machines in Georgia have been allowed to remain deliberately bad. [stderr]
No amount of cynicism is sufficient these days. We’re going to need to invent whole new forms of multi-methylated quantum-optimized cynicism:
Two days before Election Day, the office for Georgia Secretary of State Brian Kemp, who is in a closely contested race for governor, announced Sunday it was opening an investigation into the state Democratic Party for a “failed attempt to hack the state’s voter registration system,” a move Democrats slammed as a political stunt.
“After a failed attempt to hack the state’s voter registration system, the Secretary of State’s office opened an investigation into the Democratic Party of Georgia on the evening of Saturday, November 3, 2018,” Kemp’s office said in a statement. “Federal partners, including the Department of Homeland Security and Federal Bureau of Investigation, were immediately alerted.”
But they’re investigating the Democrats not the Russians. So I’ll only take partial score on that one.
