House Democrats Hacked, Cell Phone Numbers Published

Guccifer 2.0, Same Hacker Behind DNC Hack, Takes Credit

Guccifer 2.0, the hacker behind the highly controversial DNC hacks, has struck again, this time releasing documents from the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC). The documents released included a list of passwords for various DCCC accounts, as well as contact information, including private email addresses and cell phone numbers for House Democrats.

Officials are quick to blame the Russian government for the hack, as they blamed them for the DNC hack (without any real evidence) and apparently concluded that since it’s the same guy as the last time, it must be the Russians again.

Of course, the evidence of Russian involvement is no better this time than last time (which is to say, non-existent), and these newly leaked documents include so many embarrassingly simple passwords that the narrative of such hacking requiring a whole nation-state’s resources to be possible no longer holds much weight.

Democratic officials are downplaying the seriousness of the matter, saying they didn’t expect the loss of private email addresses or cell numbers to have any impact on the elections, and that they were not wholly taken by surprise that the hack happened.

    The messages written by Guccifer and reported in the press plainly and obviously read as if he/she is an American who’s upset by the lack of any real democracy in the nation.

    So, naturally, it must be blamed on the Russians.

    My dream October Surprise is Hillary getting caught backstage at a campaign event on video telling Obama to have Assange killed, and then the file is leaked after Assange is whacked by a US Military Kill Team.
