Maryland elections board says it detected 'suspicious activity' last fall.

'Maaryland's State Board of Elections detected "suspicious activity" on the computer system it uses for online voter registration before last fall's election and called in cybersecurity experts to evaluate it, administrator Linda H. Lamone said Wednesday.

Lamone's disclosure came in response to an inquiry by The Baltimore Sun amid reports that Russian cyberattacks had breached election systems in 39 states.

Lamone said the system was not penetrated. She said the activity did not compromise vote tabulation.

"Because of our strong security protocols, the system was not breached," Lamone said. "However, as an extra security precaution we had cybersecurity experts investigate the system and no intrusion was detected."'>>>

1. We are now six plus months out and

now the stories are surfacing. These people were warned way before the Elections that crap was happening.

2. It's like they are ramping up to allowing...

the citizenry to know that our election wasn't just hacked, it was stolen. I think it was a joint effort of the Republican Party (who do it regularly) and the Russian government.

What will happen when the top-secret facts become public knowledge?
