Kemp’s office said Sunday that it had alarmed the Department of Homeland Security and Federal Bureau of Investigation, however, did not give insights about the supposed hacking endeavor in its official statement.
“While we can’t remark on the specifics of a progressing examination, I can affirm that the Democratic Party of Georgia is under scrutiny for conceivable digital violations,” Candice Broce, Kemp’s press secretary, said in an announcement. “We can likewise affirm that no closer to home information was ruptured and our framework stays secure.”
Delegates for both Kemp’s office and the Department of Homeland Security did not instantly react to demands for input.
The Democratic Party of Georgia intensely denied the allegation in an announcement on Sunday, calling the test “one more case of maltreatment of intensity by a deceptive Secretary of State.”
“To be clear, Brian Kemp’s vulgar cases are 100 percent false, and this supposed examination was obscure to the Democratic Party of Georgia until the point when a crusade agent in Kemp’s authentic office discharged an announcement early today,” Rebecca DeHart, official chief of the Democratic Party of Georgia, said in an announcement.
In an ensuing articulation, DeHart noticed that the Democratic Party of Georgia is worried about race security, yet “did not make, find, or endeavor to exploit the profoundly defenseless framework utilized by the Secretary of State’s office.”

As Kemp means to avoid fault for his disappointments, the inquiries everybody must ask is: Why was the framework defenseless in any case? Why has Brian Kemp still not found a way to anchor Georgians’ own data?
Later Sunday, Kemp’s office discharged an extra explanation on the test, battling they opened an examination concerning the Democratic Party of Georgia “in the wake of accepting data from our lawful group about fizzled endeavors to break” the voter enlistment framework.
The announcement did not address the various vulnerabilities inside the framework as plot by the Democratic Association.
