    Days after activists sued, Georgia’s election server was wiped clean

    Main server deleted in July, two backups were "degaussed three times" in August.

    CYRUS FARIVAR - 10/26/2017, 12:42 PM

    A server and its backups, believed to be key to a pending federal lawsuit filed against Georgia election officials, was thoroughly deleted according to e-mails recently released under a public records request.
    Georgia previously came under heavy scrutiny after a researcher discovered significant problems with his home state’s voting system. A lawsuit soon followed in state court, asking the court to annul the results of the June 20 special election for Congress and to prevent Georgia’s existing computer-based voting system from being used again. The case, Curling v. Kemp, was filed in Fulton County Superior Court on July 3.

    As the Associated Press reported Thursday, the data was initially destroyed on July 7 by the Center for Elections Systems at Kennesaw State University, the entity tasked with running the Peach State’s elections.

    Okay, if your hardware is on the way out and you do the "DOT wipe" on that bad boy, or smash it, or put it through a junkyard magnet or whatever, that's no big deal.

    None of the data on the server was backed up to someplace else before this comprehensive destruction of data.

    Somebody should go to jail, at the very least.

    These guys got caught, how many others didn't? Ones we might never know about?

    Okay...so is that it from you, then on this subject? American voters being disenfranchised and it occurs to you to giggle over something dumb Hillary said?

    Hillary taught everyone else how to do it and walk away with no problems.

    Is anyone surprised that others are following her example?
