Former President Barack Obama may be free, but that certainly doesn’t mean he’s in the clear, as the most recent series of events would demonstrate. Unfortunately for him, it seems that what he did in Georgia a few months ago just came back to bite him — and the fact that he did it a whopping 10 times means he’s in big trouble.
Mad World News previously reported on a very concerning incident that took place in Georgia just a short time before Obama’s departure from the White House. As it turns out, his administration was responsible for hacking the Georgia state governmental network — but that isn’t even the worst part.
The Department of Homeland Security had asked each state to do this to “search for and evaluate risk,” but Georgia was one of just 10 states that actually said no. Despite this reality, the Obama administration still tried to penetrate the state’s networks a whopping 10 times between February 2 and November 15.
Making matters worse, the last attempt took place one week after the election but before the election was certified. As one would imagine, officials in the states, specifically Georgia’s Secretary of State Brian Kemp, were more than furious and demanded answers – which they still have yet to obtain.
Unfortunately for Barack Obama, it seems that the problem isn’t going anywhere as he just got some seriously bad news. According to Young Conservatives, the inspector general for DHS has launched an investigation and is looking to get to the bottom of things.
John Roth, inspector general for DHS, wants to know why the agency broke protocol on its way to 10 unprecedented attacks on the system overseen by Georgia Secretary of State Brian Kemp — who is also one of the most vocal critics about the Obama administration’s attempt to designate local and state election machinery as part of federal “critical infrastructure.”
A Jan. 17 letter from Roth notified Kemp his office was officially “investigating a series of ten alleged scanning events of the Georgia Secretary of State’s network that may have originated from DHS-affiliated IP addresses.” A firewall in Georgia’s system thwarted each attempt.

As one would imagine, the attacks likely violate various state and federal criminal laws. In the end, it’ll be interesting to see just how far up the ladder this goes as orders may have explicitly come from Barack Obama himself, seeing how he was directing the DHS at the time.
Either way, the American people want to know what the Obama administration was actually trying to do. As we all know, Georgia was a big win for Trump during the election, leaving many wondering if Obama’s administration was somehow trying to change that reality.
Of course, it can’t be said for certain, but seeing how the government simply went ahead with trying to hack a state’s computer system in spite of their strong rejection, you can bet someone is going to pay for this. Obama may think he’s going to be enjoying his retirement on the golf course, but he may have a few things to answer for in the upcoming days instead.
