Democrats are the party of “by any means necessary.”
They have no problem using dirty tactics to get what they want.
Just like how they put forth women to make fake rape accusations againts Brett Kavanaugh.
Well, it turns out that wasn’t the only thing going on to sabotage Kavanaugh from becoming a Supreme Court Justice!
An ex-Congressional aide, Jackson Cosko, has been sentenced to four years in prison for stealing Republican Senators home addresses and phone numbers and then posting them online during the Kavanaugh hearings.
Here’s the story from the New York Post:
A former Democratic congressional staffer was sentenced Wednesday to four years in prison for posting the home addresses and phone numbers of five US senators online, including Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, Lindsey Graham and Rand Paul.
Jackson Cosko, 27, hacked into Senate computers and doxxed the lawmakers out of anger over their roles in US Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation hearings, according to court documents.
The former systems administrator in New Hampshire Sen. Maggie Hassan’s office admitted that after being fired in May 2018 he began to repeatedly sneak back in to steal information from Senate systems.
During these break-ins, Cosko copied dozens of gigabytes of data, including the contact info for many sitting senators, court documents show.
After growing angry over the GOP’s handling of the nomination process he posted the personal info of Graham (R-SC), Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT) and now-former Utah Sen. Orrin Hatch on Wikipedia. He then released the info about Kentucky Sens. McConnell and Paul.
What a truly disgusting thing to do.
And it gets worse!
Apparently, Cosko also threatened to leak health info for legislators' children.
Fox News has the details on that:
A Democratic congressional aide accused of publishing the private information of at least three Republican lawmakers allegedly threatened to leak senators’ children's health information if a witness told anyone about his activities.
Jackson Cosko, who recently worked for Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee, D-Texas, was arrested for allegedly posting the personal information (or "doxxing") of a number of senators including Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., Mike Lee, R-Utah, and Orrin Hatch, R-Utah on Wikipedia -- with information such as their home addresses and phone numbers. Graham, Lee and Hatch's information was published on Thursday.
According to a sworn statement by Capitol Police Captain Jason Bell, a witness Tuesday saw Cosko at a computer in a senator’s office, where he used to work, a day after two other unnamed senators' information had been put on Wikipedia. Cosko worked for other Democratic senators including Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., Sen. Maggie Hassan, D-N.H., and former Sen. Barbara Boxer, D-Calif. While earlier reports identified Cosko as an intern for Jackson Lee, his lawyer said that he was working as an unpaid staffer.
Sources familiar with the case tell Fox News Cosko was in Sen. Hassan's office, where he was not authorized to be and was caught using a login he was not authorized to use. Cosko earlier was let go by Senator Hassan's office. A spokesman for Hassan says she "strongly denounces the alleged actions.”
According to Bell's statement, Cosko is alleged to have been confronted by the staffer and then walked out. The staffer then called police. Hours later the witness received an email from "[email protected]" saying: “If you tell anyone I will leak it all. Emails signal conversations gmails. Senators children’s health information and socials.”
Expect things to get ugly just like this when the hearings begin for Amy Coney Barrett.
Do not under-estimate the lengths Democrats or their staff will go to in order to get what they want.
