Voter databases in two Florida counties were accessed by Russian hackers before the 2016 presidential election, according to Gov. Ron DeSantis – who is otherwise keeping mum for now.
Speaking at a news conference on Tuesday, DeSantis said the reason why those counties got affected is not necessarily the counties but a private vendor they were using. The hackers gained access through a spear-phishing email after a worker clicked a link.
But which two counties? DeSantis said he’s not at liberty to say, having signed a non-disclosure agreement with the FBI.
