As Democrats continue to wage war against President-elect Donald Trump with claims that Russia under the personal direction of no less than President Vladimir Putin interfered with the election, some states are finding actual proof of cyberattacks – but not by the Russians.

The Georgia Secretary of State’s Office has identified ten separate attacks over a period of ten months by DHS addresses, and now election officials from West Virginia and Kentucky have confirmed cyberattacks, which are also linked to the DHS.Kemp said the claims of the two other states confirming similar cyberattacks from the same IP address at the DHS is concerning.

“So now this just raises more questions that haven't been answered about this and continues to raise the alarms and concern that I have,” said Secretary of State Brian Kemp.

Kemp sent a questionnaire to the 49 other secretaries of state through the National Association of Secretaries of State, and received a response from the Secretary of State of West Virginia confirming not only access by the same IP address, but the date it occurred – November 7, 2016, on the eve of the General Election.

Kentucky responded that the DHS addressed “did touch the KY (online voter registration) system on one occasion, 11/1/16.”

According to Kemp, DHS Secretary Jeh Johnson, claims that the contact was made in the course of “normal” internet searches on a routine basis, but Kemp says that fails to explain at least nine other scans by the DHS IP addresses that occurred on or around the day of primary elections in the state.

The National Association of Secretaries of State is anxious to receive a better explanation – the sooner the better, and would prefer it come from President Obama’s DHS Secretary Jeh Johnson, rather than waiting for the Trump administration to take up the matter.

“We have one administration leaving town and another coming in so it does remain to be seen just who will be left holding the bag if we don't get a great explanation on what has occurred very soon,” said Kay Stimpson, with NASS.
