Chinese hackers ruin Hillary’s day!

Chinese hackers are likely salivating at Hillary Clinton’s new automatic voting registration for everyone idea.

Shortly after her proposal to automatically make voters part of a federal voting database at the age of 18 and a plan to expand early voting, the White House announced a massive data breach involving the Office of Personnel Management and Interior Department that “could potentially affect every federal agency,” according to the Associated Press.

CNBC reports:

A foreign entity or government is believed to be behind the cyber attack. U.S. officials are investigating whether Chinese hackers were involved, Reuters reported, citing a source familiar with the matter.

A congressional aide familiar with the situation, who declined to be named because he was not authorized to discuss it, says the Office of Personnel Management and the Interior Department were hacked. A second U.S. official who also declined to be identified said the data breach could potentially affect every federal agency.

The federal government is notifying an estimated four million employees that their personal data has been compromised.

“The FBI is working with our interagency partners to investigate this matter. We take all potential threats to public and private sector systems seriously, and will continue to investigate and hold accountable those who pose a threat in cyberspace,” an FBI spokesman told CNBC.

Poor Hillary. Now the American people won’t be able to trust the US government with a program that messes with their voting rights. Oh, wait . . .

One tweeter thinks the hackers may have learned from the best:
