Just in from friend Tabitha Isner who is running for the US Congress in Alabama: She reports that their internet security surveillance tools have detected over 1300 recent attempts by Russian hackers to break into her campaign server/data base. This is happening right now.

This represents a continuing attack on our democratic processes by a foreign adversary. However often this malevolent force is denied by the current Administration and members of Congress, it remains a clear and present danger. This is for real. This is not fake. This is not imaginary.

So why isn’t this attack named for what it is?  Why are we not doubling down to protect ourselves? Why are we covering for the Russians? What is the source of this unwillingness to act?
