Michael Banerian, a Michigan GOP elector, received some of the most extreme threats according to The Detroit News. This is supported by Section 14(c) of the VRA, which says that “voting” includes “all action necessary to make a vote effective in any primary, special, or general election.” Obviously, the votes cast by Americans on Nov.
Characters make death threats that they never seem to carry out.
According to Buzzfeed, Maddie Deming, a strategist for the group, said they wanted to put electors in the spotlight and “to hold them accountable for their decision.” Whatever the intent, the initiative has produced a deluge of threats. 6, 2017 in joint session to count the Electoral College votes (3 U. The obvious conclusion is that the Justice Department has done nothing to enforce Section 11b against those who have tried to intimidate and who have threatened electors with bodily harm if they vote for Donald Trump. Under Attorney General Eric Holder, the Civil Rights Division had the open-and-shut case dismissed because its “progressive” new leaders did not believe the Voting Rights Act should be used against black defendants to protect white voters.
Electors across the country report receiving not only a flood of emails and phone calls to change their vote to Hillary Clinton but death threats as well. This radical position ignores the fact that the law is race-neutral and protects all voters.
Following the election, a coalition of liberal activist groups launched #Not My President Alliance, an organization dedicated to fighting the inauguration of President-elect Trump. Yet the website of the Justice Department’s Office of Public Affairs contains no announcement of an investigation into these threats.
As part of that effort, #Not My President distributed personal contact information — including telephone numbers and addresses — of electors in states that voted Republican. Moreover, we can be pretty certain that if investigators had actually contacted any of the threatened electors, it would have been reported in the press by now. Justice Department, which is charged with protecting all voters, should act to quash this outrage immediately. After nearly eight years of operation, the Obama administration has yet to file a single Section 11b case. Obama entered the Oval Office, his Justice Department essentially dismissed almost all of a pending, high-profile Section 11b case concerning voter intimidation by the New Black Panther Party in Philadelphia.
DDo S attacks paralyze internet systems by overwhelming servers, network links, and network devices (routers, switches, firewalls, etc.) According to a number of network security reports, DDo S attacks propagated by botnets – not viruses, worms, nor spam – currently pose the biggest threat to the internet.
Conventional security solutions, such as firewall or IDS/IDP products, deployed at the server, host or local network edge may detect and remove attacks at the edge protecting the local network and hosts.
Many such threats are the child's way of talking big or tough, or getting attention.
But since the election didn’t go as they’d planned, some have taken to harassing and intimidating electors in an attempt to change the election results.
Some of these threats may violate federal law, yet the Justice Department acts strangely uninterested in investigating. 19 deadline for the electors to cast their votes is less than three weeks away, which makes it essential that the Justice Department act immediately — and very publicly — to deter and stop these threats and this intimidation.
However, these conventional approaches cannot mitigate the DDo S attack damages for network operators.
Even though the attacks are removed at the very last mile, the operator's backbone pipes have been seriously jammed, and the routers and switches on the attacking paths are paralyzed.
