Authoritarianism expert warns GOP candidates may use claims of Russian hacking to avoid conceding lost seats in midterms

Published

Appearing on MSNBC on Saturday morning, authoritarian expert Sarah Kendzior expressed worry about the upcoming midterm elections, casting doubt of election security at the polls as the Russians continue their hacking attempts.

Speaking with AM Joy host Joy Reid, Kenzior explained hacking is “still directly focused on Democrats.”

“People are not worried enough,” she explained. “They haven’t been all along. Russia has been attacking our infrastructure for a number of years. They have attacked the State Department, the DoD, RNC, DNC, voter rolls, they’ve penetrated voter databases. We’ve known this a long time. As has been pointed out, people haven’t taken initiatives. There are basically three things I’m worried about, going into the midterms.”

“One is that we actually be hacked again by Russia again, that they may actually succeed at this,” she remarked, adding GOP candidates may also claim “the election is going to be rigged.”

“The third thing is that the GOP may simply not concede. We need to remember Roy Moore, for example, never conceded. This is a party not interested in democracy. They want a one-party state to protect the president whose loyalty is not to this country. And I think they will go through any means necessary to do that,” she concluded.

Speaking to the House Thursday, Trump's former acting CIA director Michael Morell explained that things are being made far worse by the president's denial.

"I was very nice to Mayor de Blasio. I got him ventilators when he needed them... I got him the gowns. I got him the masks. I got him everything. Then he throws a big Black Lives Matter sign right down in the middle of Fifth Avenue. I was so good to him and to Gov. Cuomo, like nobody's ever been good.
