Big story out of CA: Man paid by Katie hill arrested for hacking her opponents in 2018
quote:

The FBI on Friday filed a criminal complaint in California that sheds new light on a spree of mysterious cyberattacks that targeted Bryan Caforio, a Democratic candidate for Congress who ran for office in one of the most competitive primary elections of the 2018 midterms.

The FBI’s complaint says there is probable cause to believe that Arthur Dam carried out the four separate cyberattacks on Caforio’s website that took down the site at crucial moments in the closely contested primary. Dam was a consultant for Katie Hill, who beat Caforio in the primary and went on to win the seat in 2018


The FBI arrested Dam on Friday, according to a statement from the U.S. Attorney’s Office.

The series of distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks crippled Caforio’s website for a combined 21 hours, according to the FBI complaint. One of the attacks happened right before a critical primary-election debate; another took place just a week before the primary-election vote. Caforio lost the primary to Hill by a few thousand votes. (Hill resigned late last year amid a controversy over leaked personal photos and a possible relationship with an office staff member.)

The complaint names Dam as the person who allegedly carried out the cyberattacks on the Caforio campaign. Federal campaign records show that Hill’s campaign paid someone named Arthur Dam $500 for “graphic design and website security consultation.”

Is this real reason she resigned from congress?




Key line:

Arthur Dam, arrested by the FBI, listed a $500 in-kind contribution to Hill's campaign in March 2018 for "graphic design and website security consultation."

I doubt that's the real reason she resigned.

The reason we all know (her having inappropriate relations with a staffer) is plenty enough to force someone out when you consider she was photographed pampering her own staffer in the nude in her office.

I have a strong suspicion that had she not resigned we would have never even heard about this stuff.

Lots of shite going on with her.

The photos brought a lot of scrutiny on her for a number of things including financial frickery in paying off her fricktoys and questions about a nonprofit she headed before running for Congress that seemed sketchy as hell.

The line of thought had been that people didn’t want a lot of focus on that nonprofit because it was some gay kid outreach or something like that which seemed like a potential grooming operation.

She grew up in Abilene, TX too. It’s pretty much a hotbed of conservatism. Then she went to school in CA and this is the result.

They sent them in the mail with samples of Tide.
