    (Reuters) - Russian operatives have penetrated some of Florida’s election systems and could delete registered voters ahead of the November elections if the systems are not adequately protected, Florida U.S. Senator Bill Nelson told the Tampa Bay Times on Wednesday.

    “They have already penetrated certain counties in the state and they now have free rein to move about,” Nelson told the newspaper, which posted an audio recording of the interview on its website.

    Democrat Nelson and Republican Senator Marco Rubio of Florida wrote a letter last month to the state’s 67 county election supervisors about potential threats, the newspaper said. But that letter lacked the specificity Nelson has laid out, according to the Times.


    “We were requested by the chairman and vice chairman of the (Senate) Intelligence Committee to let supervisors of election in Florida know that the Russians are in their records,” Nelson told the newspaper.

    But the state department that oversees elections pushed back against Nelson’s comments, saying it received “zero information” from Nelson, federal or state agencies to support the infiltration claim. Nelson is running for re-election in November against Florida Governor Rick Scott.

    Bad news. We really need money and support for bolstering our election systems nationwide.

    This needs everyone to support it.

    If they go back to the old fashioned way, we could avoid these problems.

    Hanging chads are much easier to deal with than Russians.

    But seriously, we shouldn't be putting our election on-line to where the election could be hacked.

    Take the voting machines and all that off line.

    That's great and all, but this thread is about the election. Your topic is important too, but I'd prefer not to muddy the waters. Thanks.

    Could be a 400lb kid on a bed somewhere.

    No reason it wouldn't be Russia

    Shame that about 40% of your country are absolute, confirmed cucks.

    Sounds like bullshit. Are these Senators up for election soon?
    The article itself says the officials in Florida have received no credible information to act.
    If any of this were verifiably true why would the state senators not provide the exact information needed to take action?

    Citizens in states with voter referendums should ought to more strongly consider outlawing anything hackable when it comes to casting ballots. Somehow I don't see elected officials putting in the legislation.

    This is bullshit fear mongering media bullshit.

    Aaaaarrrrggghhh.
    Look at the wording and verbiage.

    After the outrageous claims in the first paragraph, it ends with "Florida U.S. Senator Bill Nelson told the Tampa Bay Times on Wednesday"

    That's the source.

    My favorite part is:
    “We were requested by the chairman and vice chairman of the (Senate) Intelligence Committee to let supervisors of election in Florida know that the Russians are in their records,” Nelson told the newspaper.

    He "told" the newspaper is yet another iron clad source that was refuted by the state department.

    But guess what? It's going to be reported, and re-reported as a "fact" and some call to arms against the evil Russians and Trump's evil Whitehouse.

    A sitting U.S. Senator is saying that they're already in some of his state's registration systems. That's a huge deal, and him and Rubio sent a letter about possible interference earlier in the year. It's a serious matter, and demands the full attention of all local, state, and federal election officials.

    You read your post right? They definitely did say those words.
    I really hope it is investigated and we can find out how they "know".

    I 100% hope that there is an actual investigation into election tampering.

    I'm also 100% sure that it wouldn't turn out the way you hope.

    The simple solution to a hacked democracy is to do away with democracy and let the intelligence agencies choose our corporate overlords.
