“Last Friday, my office was notified by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) that Russian cyber actors 'scanned' California’s Internet-facing systems in 2016, including Secretary of State websites. Following our request for further information, it became clear that DHS’ conclusions were wrong.”
“DHS confirmed that Russian scanning activity had actually occurred on the California Department of Technology statewide network, not any Secretary of State website. Based on this additional information, California voters can further rest assured that the California Secretary of State elections infrastructure and websites were not hacked or breached by Russian cyber actors.”
“Our notification from DHS last Friday was not only a year late, it also turned out to be bad information. To make matters worse, the Associated Press similarly reported that DHS has reversed itself and 'now says Russia didn’t target Wisconsin’s voter registration system,' which is contrary to previous briefings.”

Pretty hard to hide those shredder trucks that were spotted outside election headquarters in San Diego.
Those weren't Russian, lol.

*California* calls election hacking fake news
Well that's funny.
Since the popular vote went to Clinton.
So I wonder why Russia hacked the machines to give Clinton more votes than Trump.
The MaCarthists really don't get how idiotic they all sound.

I am confused, did the DHS say that 21 states were targeted and most were not breached? So wouldnt that make California one of the states that wasnt breached?
Does Zerohedge actually think its readers are that stupid?.... Never mind read some of the comments on their site. They are indeed that dumb.
But in a stunning reversal - one which we doubt will put endless rumors of Russian cyberinterference to bed - the AP now reports that DHS has told Wisconsin that the Russian government was not involved in the cyber-targeting.
In an email to the state’s deputy elections administrator that was provided to reporters at the Wisconsin Elections Commission meeting on Tuesday, Homeland Security said that initial notice of Russian involvement was made in error.
