  • LARRY CRANE: Clerk said secretary of state dumped bad data on county clerks, gave them no help in wading through corrections. Some did; some didn't.
Reuters reports:

The FBI is urging U.S. election officials to increase computer security after it uncovered evidence that hackers have targeted two state election databases in recent weeks, according to a confidential advisory.
Sources indicate the important potential swing states of Arizona and Illinois were targeted. Foreign hackers are believed to be at work. Russia looking to influence the presidential election?

Scary stuff.

Do you trust Arkansas Secretary of State Mark Martin to maintain a voter system with integrity? The man who was willing to see county clerks dump 7,000 people off the rolls without a check, even though he knew the list was badly flawed (65 percent of the 1,730 names Martin sent to Pulaski Clerk Larry Crane for dumping were legal.) Martin is also working hand-in-hand with Kansas' lead vote suppressor Kris Kobach on a multi-state crosscheck system fraught with problems and the potential to disqualify tens of thousands of legal voters, heavily tilted to minorities, according to reporting for Rolling Stone by Greg Palast.

Who said something about rigged elections?
