Democrats fear hackers targeted tight Florida races for latest data leaks

by Mark Hosenball and Ginger Gibson | Reuters / Yahoo! news  |  published on August 21, 2016


WASHINGTON – Leading Democrats are growing increasingly worried that the hackers who made public leaked documents this week were trying to sabotage the Democratic candidates in several central Florida congressional races, the first time such leaks have been targeted so directly.

Two sources familiar with Democratic Party investigations of recent cyber attacks said documents made public this week by the hacker known as Guccifer2 contained information that could damage Democratic candidates in competitive Florida contests for the U.S. House of Representatives.

The documents, hacked from the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC), which raises funds for the party’s House candidates, are detailed dossiers describing the Florida candidates’ backgrounds, including personal details, as well as political, economic and demographic profiles of the strategic congressional districts.

Since 1996, the parties winning the counties in the Interstate 4 corridor between Orlando and Tampa, where several of the targeted districts are located, have won the presidency.

Many of the state’s moderate swing voters live in the I-4 corridor, and if Republican voters there turn out in force, it could cut into the vote for Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.The DCCC was one of several Democratic Party organizations, including the Democratic National Committee (DNC) and Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign, that have been hacked, but the Democratic Party sources said they did not know who might have helped the hackers select the Florida races to target, or what the hackers were trying to accomplish.

    They better be worried and thank you Assange and whoever is doing this. Because they sure are not worried about anything from the RINO in Congress or throughout America.

    I live in Florida, we are loaded with Muslims and illegals. When Scott cleaned out our polling offices after 2012, he found 35,000 votes by dead people and where no ID required all votes were for O. Mathematically impossible.

    Five people who were exposing the Clintons and especially Hillary were killed since July and August of this year. One shot 27 times in the back going to talk to FBI about election rigging. Assange had plenty to say on that.

  • Worried Vet

    They are worried this corrupt bs will come out and they won’t be able to be elected dog catcher. The truth will hurt the liberals beyond repair, I pray it comes out soon.

    • HENRI

      JUST REMEMBER THAT GOD IS IN CONTROL ALL THE TIME

      • Worried Vet

        Yes and he will punish all these corrupt non believers that continue to use blasphemy against him. They continue to let genocide go on in the middle east against Christians. It’s disgusting our country is worried about some confused man using what bathroom and the Christian’s in the middle east are being destroyed. It’s shameful the media ignoring this and promoting bathroom law. They will pay for it when they see God. I wonder how they will explain they were being PC instead of caring about God’s creature being killed for believing in him.

    • Tiger

      I thank all hackers who took out Debbie and who are exposing Soros and H.

      • Worried Vet

        Yes and I hope someone buys them lunch at least. I keel thinking of the show person of interest. I wonder how much is fantasy or truth.

        • Tiger

          These guys have done us a great service.

          Hey did you guys get your project off the bench concerning the bikers? I sent the list from A to Z of all the biker clubs in America to our friend did she get them to you? I will past them here and now for you. Also you need to go to Talk radio in your area, all the places the vets hang out in your area, get pamphlets out and get this going.

          • Worried Vet

            Tiger I have no idea. I have not been asked or informed. I do what I can from home right now.

          • Tiger

            Again my friend sorry I confused you. I am in touch with so many Vets and all of us of one mind I get confused.

        • Tiger

          Oh shoot my friend got you confused with Korean Vet you are both great but here is the biker list anyway.

          http://www.ridersinfo.net/clubs.html

          • Worried Vet

            I will check it out.

          • Tiger

            Good they were going to use it to get a message to the bikers to show up and get our message across to certain areas of the country. In Florida 100 bikers and police on bikes lined up for Trump. It was wonderful to see.

  • itsfun

    Amazing how scared the Democrats are of Americans actually discovering their goals.

    • Worried Vet

      They know if the real truth comes out the public would revolt. These sleeze bags are so corrupt they can’t remember the truth any more.

      • Shelly Shannon

        They aren’t even denouncing their supporters violence any more. And here is Clinton already setting up her agenda for the white house. Totally disgusting that this corrupt, lying, self-centered, evil bitch will be in charge of people’s lives. I hope she keals over.

        • itsfun

          They may be surprised when people that say they don’t support Trump are doing that to avoid being beat up, or have their property destroyed by the thugs on the left, actually vote for Trump.

          • Shelly Shannon

            Yes! I really hope this is happening. I really wouldn’t doubt it. I live in a mostly democratic state and I have spoke to hundreds of people who are trump supporters and they keep it quiet. If he can bring this within 4 percentage points he just may win this. Im afraid that voter fraud will prevail tho. I heard this morning on the news that Obama wasnt supposed to even be eligable for the primary in 2012 to be on the ballot, but because of the illegal votes from dead people it put him over the required number to qualify. They didn’t catch it until 3 years into his presidency or the president would have been Romney.

          • itsfun

            There was a voting district in Philly that had more votes for Obama than there were registered voters.

          • Shelly Shannon

            Are you serious? Wow! How did i not know that? Probably because I didn’t vote for him. They are just total losers. I’ll be more alert this time that’s for sure.

          • Arizona Don

            That happened in several states and in Philadelphia there were I think several precincts. One place in Florida 157% of the registered voters voted.

          • Shelly Shannon

            WHAT? And nobody thought that was strange when the results came in? How corrupt is that?

          • Worried Vet

            I think that may bring a shock come Nov. Many don’t admit just to protect themselves. I know people around me seem to be doing just that.

        • Worried Vet

          They don’t hide it because the media is protecting many things they do against the law. These thugs have been getting away with this crap at every election. We can’t allow them to bully voters into voting for Hillary, people need to vote who they want to vote for at every polling place. It pissed me off when they overturn voter I.D. laws but do nothing about groups like sicu or whatever it’s called now days, I know accord used to get away with being bullies and I heard they changed their name but are still around.

          • Shelly Shannon

            I’m not to worried about them bulling trump supporters into voting for Hillary. Trump supporters are die hard supporters for him. I am more worried about the castrophy that is going to happen when these Hillary supporters realize they have been screwed, and all shit breaks loose when they realize they mean nothing. I guess I just don’t see how anyone can believe in someone who has done the things Clinton has done. The only way any republican will win back the presidency is to get rid of all the government freebies and make the people that can work get jobs and stand on their own two feet becauae freebies is the anchor the dems use to keep people in opression and voting for them. I still think trump can win with the silent vote as long as there isnt any voter fraud.

          • Worried Vet

            It’s up to us to watch when we vote and try to keep that from happening. I do think it will be a landslide for Trump because of the silent vote. I pray I’m right.

          • Shelly Shannon

            I pray for that every day too. TRUMP/PENSE 2016!

          • Worried Vet

            Yes if you have faith pray. If you don’t have faith, get it and pray we need all the help we can get.

          • Shelly Shannon

            Don’t worry about that! I’ve been praying ever since the primaries began. I got ya covered.

          • Worried Vet

            Ditto

          • Arizona Don

            I certainly agree with you Shelly however, “make” them might be a little strong and not at all correct. What those of us who are conservative need to do is point out the error in their thinking regarding government handouts (don’t worry I do know how hard that is with a democrat). No one ever does anything but barely survive on handouts. No one has ever prospered on a government give away. Maybe their real problem is ambition.

          • Shelly Shannon

            I spoke with an African American friend of mine today. I asked her why African Americans are afraid to vote for Trump. She said “it is because her friends dont want to lose their food stamps and all their free stuff”. I explained that Trump wasn’t going to take anything away. I explained that he will be cleaning up the fraud but not taking benefits from people who really need them. She was kind of surprised at that answer. So I guess that if they are afraid to step forward and go a different direction, then there’s not much anyone can do for them.

          • Arizona Don

            Of course that is what she said.

            I grew up on a farm and learned very early in life you get what you work for. If you want something bad enough work, save and buy it. However in the 60’s LBJ became president and did his war on poverty thing. And started the handouts. So we had to learn a lesson all over again. No one is ever helped long term by handouts. Short term in emergencies yes of course. It is the give away programs that is destroying the black communities (along with Roe vs Wade). This government under the guise of helping blacks is destroying them and they cannot see it. They are becoming slaves again and do not realize it. LBJ fought the civil rights movement for years and then decided the best way to get rid of them was welfare. When he signed the civil rights bill he said we’ll have themniggers voting democratic for a hundred years. Not my words his. Most blacks that I have ever known have been good. However, I also admit I have not know many. There were none where I grew up in the forties and fifties. The first I really had contact with was in the Army.

            Anyone who knows history knows the democrats have always hated blacks.

            Right now what is happing to the blacks is appalling but they are bringing it upon themselves, willingly. If this continues much longer they, as a race in America, will not survive as a free people.

            It is certainly true Donald Trump promises jobs to return Americans to be able to once again “pursue happiness” (in other words better their life) while hillary promises more free everything. She is toting free education at the university level. Do you have any idea what effect that will have on individuals? Think about it. When everyone has a bachelor degree it will become worthless.

            She, hillary, is playing the role of Santa Claus and Donald promises prosperity for those willing to work for it. Hard to beat Santa! Therefore, the blacks will never change as long as democrats run the country. Anyone who wants to see what America will look like under continued democratic rule, look at Venezuela. Or they can just take a trip to Detroit. That could be all of America in 20 years unless we get smart! I can assure you it “ain’t” gonna be because of climate change.

          • Shelly Shannon

            Yeah, she is playing the role of a very corrupt Santa claus. The battle has begun. She is getting more and more angry every time Donald asks for the black vote. Sometimes I am a little worried for him. I just hope nobody tries to take him out or hurt his family. You never know with the Clintons. Just like the other one last Monday who had ties to the Clinton crime family.

      • itsfun

        They lie so much, they don’t even know the truth anymore. Have you watched Hillary trying to remember what she lied about when trying make a speech? You can see on her face, she is going into a panic trying to remember her lies.

        • Worried Vet

          Yes and she smirks when she lies thinking she is fooling everyone. I seen Obama Smirking today saying it wasn’t ransom. He kept telling us it wasn’t ransom giving Iran 400 million. He was smirking every time and even more when he said it wasn’t any conspiracy. It’s really sad they Are getting away with these lies over and over. I’m scared the country is tired of it and now they are so obvious like they can’t be touched. They seem to want people to rise up or even start a civil war. If they try to steal the election because millions won’t admit supporting Trump out of fear because of the liberal thugs they may get their civil war. They don’t know when to quit.

  • Luke

    It makes me happy that the liberal heathens are getting a dose of their same hateful ways..
    No way can we allow this liberal scum to re-enter the WH..

    Vote for America & Americans, vote Trump/Pence/2016

  • Shelly Shannon

    Wow! For such a party who thinks they have this race so wound up, the democrats are sure panicked about this Gufficer thing. We all know why tho! If I was trying to hide corrupt lies and had a volatile candidate like Hillary Clinton and had to cover for her 24/7 I might be panicked too about having a bullet put into my head.

    • Rodney Steward

      HA, HA, YOU’RE RIGHT!!!

    • Worried Vet

      So right and they can only keep up the spin for so long. The facts seem to have a way of leaking out, I sure hope it is enough before election time. With the doj deciding not to put federal observers in the most corrupt polling places this year, it looks like its being set up for voter fraud. We will have to see and pay attention.

  • Rodney Steward

    The Dems. seem to have a problem with fighting fire with fire, like voter fraud, dead votes and repeat voters, lying to the people, and praying on the weak minded with a free cell phone! Now that info. is coming out on how low they really are, but every dog has their day!!!

    • Shelly Shannon

      I truly believe that even if Clinton reaches the white house she will lose control over the country. She will fail miserably and all those people who supported her will feel the wrath of her past.

      • Rodney Steward

        I hope you’re right, but I fear she will try the iron fist thing, and that’s when the trouble will start, this is a very evil person and her love for islam is very strong also! Soros has donated a lot of money to help get her the house, and funding all these anti-Trump rallies to the BLMs!! We have to stick together and hope for the best! 🙂

        • Shelly Shannon

          Rodney, what do you mean the iron thing?

          • Rodney Steward

            First by changing the Constitution that she said it needed changing, and any changes to it destroy’s it! And with it gone it’ll be forced gun confiscation, and that’s when things get nasty, the Hitler thing, The Iron fist like Russia uses!!

          • Shelly Shannon

            Thank you for explaining that. Your right. This will be mass destruction if she is elected. I’m so worried. I just keep praying a miracle happens for us.

          • Rodney Steward

            I may be all wrong, and hope so, but she’s said that she’s going to get our guns if Obama doesn’t! And religion will be another thing, she made the statement at one of her speeches, that there are a lot of people that have all these deep seated religious beliefs that have to be changed! I believe she’s converted to islam and a lot of these politicians have, and Kerry being one that has! Or, maybe Hellary might be the one with the 6’s on the head, who knows, she’s pretty evil, the Clinton’s have a pretty long death trail !! Lets assume I’m wrong!

          • Shelly Shannon

            I don’t think you’re wrong. I do think she is evil and I also think she has totally different intentions than the ones she gives today. If you think about it her policies don’t make sense. The question is always WHY would anyone want that? She is using lawyer speak to hide true intentions. When your number one mentor is Saul Alinski you have already sold your soul to the devil.

          • Rodney Steward

            Amen to that!

          • Rodney Steward

            And she has said that she will continue the same path as Obama, and that AIN’T good! She’ll be Obama on steroids!

          • Shelly Shannon

            Yes she will! There is one thing she will get screwed on tho. Obama Care can’t survive if insurance companies pull out. She can’t force them to stay in either. I think her whole presidency will explode when everyone starts to turn on her and realize she should never have been put there in the first place. I wouldn’t even be surprised if the American people called for a coup.

          • Rodney Steward

            I like the way U think Shelly, I believe you’re right on this!! The American people are kinda looking at something to happen!!

          • Worried Vet

            They are and will make it happen. I’m afraid the people of this country that are patriots are done letting these elites get away with all this corruption. Between the politicians and media the people don’t have a say anymore. It’s time for a change, they seem to not care and think we’re to stupid and docile to do anything about it. They have become blatant and hubris so fast in the last few months so they can see what we do. I wonder what they have planned, I bet it’s not good for the people of this country. I would bet good money their up to something and I’m not a gambler or a conspiracy nut. I pray wiki leaks goes ahead and sends the rest of what they have soon, that maybe our only hope in defeating these corrupt leaders.

          • Rodney Steward

            A couple of drone strikes and then martial law will scare the he$$ out of most, and it’ll go from there! This is just my thinking, but strike fast, and cause fear! Remember, Obama never would sign off on using drones on Americans, he may have been thinking ahead!!

          • Worried Vet

            It worries me to but my problem is how can any woman think Muslim or Sharia law will do her any good. She won’t be allowed to even vote let alone be POTUS if Sharia were to become the norm. First off millions of Americans won’t take her iron fist lying down like these idiot sheep liberals, the ones who think she really cares about them. I have met some pretty big fools who think she is so perfect. Hell even Hitler’s generals changed their minds and tried to kill him. I hope it don’t come to that, but I do know loyal Americans won’t stand for anymore of this socialist crap. We’re tired of PC safe space whining babies.

          • Rodney Steward

            The Clinton’s have a history of selling out our country, and you’re right about the millions not laying down, I’m like you, I too took an oath and it’s for life, but when this woman said that she would bring in 6 times more refugees than Obama,she hates this country too! And she’ll be good with islam, she’s not going to convert unless Bill-Bob does, and all she needs is his permission and he’s to scared not to! 🙂 But I’m on your side my friend, had enough of this bullsh$t too!!

          • Worried Vet

            Yep lock and load, we took an oath for life even against domestic threats. Hillary is the worst domestic threat we have ever had. The liberal policies she has taken on to get elected will destroy us all if she wins. I pray we can beat her and her minions.

          • Rodney Steward

            But it’ll be after the fight my friend!! I pray we can beat her too!! 🙂

        • greyparrot

          Keeping in mind that Hillary is a vindictive witch and her time as president could be used to pay back those right wingers who, she perceived, were out to get her for the past few decades. She cannot be trusted to lead this country without vengeance as part of her platform. In some ways she could be more destructive that BO.

          • Rodney Steward

            She will be, Obama’s still carry out his hate for the White man and his Constitution! And the blacks now want to do away with the American flag, because they said it was a White mans flag for another one! People are getting fed up, and like U said, Hellary is a EVIL WITCH, and will make sure something will start, but I’m still not ruling out Obama trying something! It’s gotten to the point that our whole system can’t be trusted! SAD!
