THROWBACK TO 2017: Georgia election server wiped after suit filed. Georgia’s Secretary of State, Brian Kemp, was named as a defendant in the case…

Georgia's Secretary of State, Brian Kemp

Strange how it all comes around. Look who was the defendant in a case from 2017 involving the wiping of election machines; None other than Georgia’s Secretary of State, Brian Kemp.

Back in 2017, APNews had a piece on how technicians in Georgia quietly erased computer servers tied to the elections, AFTER a lawsuit was filed. The people that erased the data were technicians that worked at the Center for Elections Systems at Kennesaw State University. They run the state’s election system and report directly to Brian Kemp.

The server in question made national headlines in June 2017 after a security expert exposed a ‘security hole’ that happened to open six months after he reported it to election authorities.


It’s not clear who ordered the server’s data irretrievably erased. The Kennesaw elections center answers to Georgia’s secretary of state, Brian Kemp, a Republican running for governor in 2018 and the suit’s main defendant.

Whoever was against a forensic investigation into the server, didn’t want it to show that hackers could have compromised the elections. Sound familiar?
