Florida Senator Bill Nelson unequivocally stated to the Tampa Bay Times,
“They [the Russians] have already penetrated certain counties in the state [of Florida] and they now have free rein to move about.”
Senator Nelson is up for reelection. Making such a statement demands proof in order to protect Florida’s voting systems. Attempts by various news outlets to get the proof have been fruitless.
Miami’s WPLG Local 10 released the following report on YouTube:
Senator Nelson, by his own admission, is vulnerable in Florida. Why would Nelson make such a statement then not at least provide information to Governor Scott and local election officials? Doesn’t Senator Nelson want Florida’s election systems to be safe from hacks by any foreign or domestic entity?
Is Senator Nelson planning to blame the Russians for the loss of his U.S. Senate seat, like the Democrats did in November 2016?
It sure looks like it.
