Report: Illinois Voter Hack Worse Than First Reported
(Springfield, IL) — A new report says the hack of Illinois’ voter database tipped investigators to a larger web of attempted infiltration across the country. “Bloomberg News” reported yesterday that Illinois is being called ‘patient zero’ in the hack investigation because Illinois was the first state to notice the hacking event. The report says hackers tried to delete or alter some voter information, but they failed. Illinois election officials say the hacks wouldn’t have impacted the election, because counties control voter information, not the state.
