Florida leaders, at the local and state levels, joined federal officials Friday to announce they are working together to protect the state's election systems from foreign interference.
If the FBI discovers that foreign hackers have infiltrated the networks of your county election office, you may not find out about it until after voting is over. And your governor and other state officials may be kept in the dark, too.
The Mueller report confirms the FBI believes Russia launched a successful cyberattack on voting data in part of Florida. This was a warning from former Senator Bill Nelson that the campaign committee for his rival Rick Scott mocked as Scott challenged and defeated Nelson.
Florida’s senior senator had some alarming words Wednesday: The Russians have hacked into the state's voting records and have the power to change them.
