Jesse Ferguson, a former spokesperson for Hillary Clinton’s failed presidential campaign, wants you to read this New York Times op-ed by Robby Mook, a former campaign manager for Hillary Clinton’s failed presidential campaign, on — get this — “the dangers of not taking the Russian hack seriously.”
That’s right — the group who defended the candidate who set up her own private email server NOW thinks IT security is an issue to focus on:

One thing Mook does do in his op-ed is at least admit he had a comically inept concept of the dangers of hacking before it happened to his gal. No, hacking was never just a “prank”:
That’s because most of us don’t think of hacking as a crime like breaking and entering. Before the D.N.C. break-in, I thought of hacking as a prank by mischievous tech-savvy people to get revenge. When North Koreans hacked Sony Pictures in 2014 in retaliation for making the satire “The Interview,” I was much more disturbed by the embarrassing things the movie executives said in emails to one another than by how easy it was for a dictator to punish critics in the United States. It wasn’t until I lived through the Russian hackings of Democratic staff members and organizations that I realized how dangerous such an attitude could be.
What a clown and no wonder Hillary lost if this is indicative of the attitudes of the people surrounding her.
