Hack Attack on Macron Campaign in France
Posted by Mary Catherine Dunphy (+2543) one year ago
Well, well, well, here we go again. Another key democracy's presidential campaign has experienced a cyber attack.

Same story. Different country. This time it's France.

Why is it that the campaigns of Putin's right wing friends who are presidential candidates are not the campaigns being hacked? Trump was Putin's favored candidate in the U.S. presidential election. His campaign was not hacked. Far right-wing candidate, Marine Le Pen, recently met with Putin in Russia. Her campaign was not hacked.

I think Putin has a clear favorite in the French presidential campaign, and it is not Emmanuel Macron who until recently was ahead in the polls. Now Emmanuel Macron is experiencing the same dirty tricks that Hillary Clinton did -- a hack attack and document leak serving to destabilize Sunday's presidential election.

Let us remember that Putin's goal is to destabilize western democracies. Tomorrow is the election. Let's see what happens! Will Putin win again -- this time in France?
