On Sunday, the Georgia Secretary of State’s Office And Republican Gubernatorial hopeful Brian Kemp’s office announced that the Georgia Democrat Party tried to “breach” Georgia’s voter registration system on Saturday evening. Also, the FBI and Department of Homeland Security have been briefed on the situation as well. Initially, the statement claims the “possible cyber crime” occurred on Saturday evening, and read as follows…

The original statement says…

“While we cannot comment on the specifics of an ongoing investigation, I can confirm that the Democratic Party of Georgia is under investigation for possible cyber crimes,” SOS press secretary Candice Broce said. As of that release, the State said “federal partners” were made aware of the matter.

Secretary Kemp’s office followed up with more details, accusing the Democrats of targeting the online voter registration tool. It read…

We opened an investigation into the Democratic Party of Georgia after receiving information from our legal team about failed efforts to breach the online voter registration system and My Voter Page. We are working with our private sector vendors and investigators to review data logs. We have contacted our federal partners and formally requested the Federal Bureau of Investigation to investigate these possible cyber crimes. The Secretary of State’s office will release more information as it becomes available.

The Georgia Democrats denied the allegations in a statement, and are describing the matter as “another example of abuse of power by an unethical Secretary of State.” The Democrats also said that they were “unaware” of the allegation until the first press release was issued on Sunday. The Georgia Democrat Party responded by stating…

“This political stunt from Kemp just days before the election is yet another example of why he cannot be trusted and should not be overseeing an election in which he is also a candidate for governor,” the statement charged. The Georgia Democrats posited that “it’s likely we’ll see even more of his abuses of power as the election nears.”

We will update, as soon as more information becomes available!
