Situational Unawareness— or what the liberals didn’t know.
From the Washington Post: The electoral college is a medieval relic. Only the U.S. still has one. One of the things that makes America great.
Russia and our elections: According to Soviet documents unearthed in the early 1990’s, Kennedy literally asked the Soviets, avowed enemies of the U.S., to intervene on behalf of the Democratic party in the 1984 elections. Kennedy’s communist communique was so secret that it was not discovered until 1991, eight years after Kennedy had initiated his Soviet gambit:
Barbara Boxer blocks her own bill because Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) and Sen. Diane Feinstein (D-Calif.) successfully slipped in long-desired language to provide drought relief to central and southern California. It would temporarily relax environmental standards and instruct federal officials to divert more water to farms and other users in the federal water infrastructure in the Golden State.
Global warming failed another test. There was a prize riding on this one.

From Instapundit: YEAH, AT FIRST THEY BLAMED THE IRS SCANDAL ON “ROGUE EMPLOYEES,” TOO: Exclusive: DHS Says Georgia Hack May Have Been Rogue Employee: Officials tell members of Congress the attack on state firewall could have been inside job. Plus: “With few concrete answers from DHS so far, the aide said there is a lot of skepticism about the department’s innocence in the attempted breach. ‘There’s a lot of mistrust at the moment.’”
A cynic might conclude that all the sudden hoopla about Russian hacking is meant to distract from what DHS was doing.
UPDATE: From the comments:
I might suggest that the state of Georgia file charges under any number of computer crime laws. So long as they have the logs pointing to the attack source originating from DHS let loose the dogs of law! My lawyer always says “discovery is a bi#$^ whether you want it or not.”
Which would then lead to a very interesting second court case. Georgia having proved the source would very well have standing at SCOTUS for a charge of civil rights violations and a abridgement of Article IV of the US Constitution.
