  • ANDREW AURENHEIMER: In the news again.
For the record: New York magazine reports that a white supremacist hacker known as Weev has been linked to efforts to disrupt the election of Emmanuel Macron as president of France.  Falsified documents aimed at smearing Macron emerged in the final days of the campaign.

Weev has been mentioned here before. He was identified as Andrew Aurenheimer of Fayetteville. The mention was on the occasion of his release from federal prison after an appeals court overturned his conviction for unauthorized access to AT&T servers.
