Democrats press for details on alleged breach of Georgia voter data

A Democratic candidate for Congress urged Secretary of State Brian Kemp to release details of an alleged breach of confidential data that could affect millions of Georgia voter records.

Democrat Jon Ossoff pressed Kempís office to disclose the nature and suspected origin of the attack, the type and quantity of data that may have been disclosed and an assessment of whether the breach could impact the April 18 special election to replace former Rep. Tom Price.

The Federal Bureau of Investigation launched an inquiry into the suspected cyberattack on Friday at the request of state officials after they received notice that records kept by the Center for Election Systems at Kennesaw State University may have been compromised.

Kemp has said little about the breach since the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported the FBIís involvement on Friday, aside from a brief statement expressing confidence the FBI would track down the perpetrator.
