And media like CNN’s S.E. Cupp spread the false story and haven’t corrected it.
Via Free Beacon:
Sen. Bill Nelson (D., Fla.) made waves Wednesday when he asserted Russians had compromised voting systems in his state, but elections officials said Thursday they haven’t seen any sign of interference.
The Florida Department of State as well as county election officials told the Sun-Sentinel they’ve received no information from Nelson or his staff about emerging threats to the election system.
“Additionally, the department has received no information from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, the Federal Bureau of Investigation or the Florida Department of Law Enforcement that corroborates Sen. Nelson’s statement and we have no evidence to support these claims,” the Florida Department of State said in a statement. “If Sen. Nelson has specific information about threats to our elections, he should share it with election officials in Florida.”
Broward County Elections Supervisor Brenda Snipes said neither the federal government nor Nelson have notified them about any penetration of their system. She said she doesn’t know of any problems.
