Creep Linked to Sleazy Democrat Katie Hill Hacked Rival Campaign’s Web Site

Posted on | February 22, 2020 | Comments Off on Creep Linked to Sleazy Democrat Katie Hill Hacked Rival Campaign’s Web Site

I love it when Democrats commit crimes against each other:

The FBI on Friday arrested a man married to a staffer for former Democratic representative Katie Hill for a hacking spree against one of Hill’s political opponents.
Arthur Dam, the husband of Hill’s campaign fundraiser and eventual district director Kelsey O’Hara, is charged with intentionally damaging and attempting to damage a protected computer for committing cyber attacks against Hill’s Democratic rival Bryan Caforio. Two of the attacks came at crucial points during their 25th Congressional District primary fight, the Intercept reported.
According to the complaint, Caforio’s website went down for a combined 21 hours during the 2018 campaign due to distributed denial of service attacks, a cyber attack that effectively shuts down a website from being used by interfering with its host or provider. Two of the hacks happened directly before a primary debate and a week before the primary election. The FBI connected Dam to the attack through “subscriber information, IP addresses, geolocation history, and open sources,” as well as through his wife.
The FBI traced the hacking to an anonymous Amazon Web Services account that was paid for by Dam’s credit card. Hill’s Federal Election Commission records list a $500 in-kind contribution from Dam on March 25, 2018, for “graphic design and website security consultation,” the Intercept reported.
The complaint stated the attacks cost Caforio upwards of $30,000 in expenditures and lost time to investigate and mitigate them. The hacks occurring at high-buzz times in the campaign exacerbated their harm.
Caforio said in a statement to the media that he was “shocked and saddened” that the arrested hacker was connected to Hill’s campaign, adding it should be “a reminder that Russia is not the only threat to our democracy.”

Let’s hope he gets as much prison time as Roger Stone. In case you’ve forgotten, Katie Hill is the naked bisexual Democrat who engaged in a “relationship” with a member of her congressional staff.
