"I'm feeling pretty excited, you know, as the kids would say, 'I'm feeling pretty pumped up!'"

Levin also said that his firm, CyberScout, has analyzed several states' election systems to look for weaknesses ranging from the accessibility of voter registration databases to the susceptibility of government websites to denial-of-service attacks. Kemp, meanwhile, has earned President Trump's endorsement.

Sunday's accusation of election hacking came with precious few details, but a spokesperson for Kemp's office did tell the Times that the investigation was sparked by an email "talking about trying to hack the Secretary of State's system".

He calls it an investigation.

Their goal is to prevent Kemp, who now serves as Georgia's secretary of state, from declaring the victor of today's election and from being involved in any recounts or runoffs.

Mac Miller’s Death Ruled Accidental Overdose; Fentanyl, Cocaine Found In Rapper’s System
Miller, whose full name is Malcolm James McCormick, had battled with substance abuse for years, according to several reports. Tom Petty , 66, died in October 2017 from an accidental overdose after mixing medications, including the opioid.

"Someone was making a good-faith effort to determine if there's a vulnerability, and he's coming after them and saying it's hacking", said the attorney, David Cross.

Republican nominee Brian Kemp made the allegation just as reports emerged of a gaping vulnerability in a system that he controls as secretary of state.

With the clock winding down before Tuesday's vote, Georgia's chief elections officer, who is also running for governor, turned a report of an alleged vulnerability in the election system he oversees into a political weapon in a race he is hoping to win.

In Georgia, critics have drawn attention to Kemp's dual role as candidate for governor and supervisor of the state's elections, in his capacity as Georgia secretary of state. "This milestone is a testament to the hard work of thousands of election officials all across Georgia who are dedicated to secure, accessible, and fair elections for all".

"Brian Kemp is desperate to save his failing campaign, and it's likely we'll see even more of his abuses of power as the election nears", DeHart said. The official declined to say if the agency was investigating.

First and foremost, the results in Georgia will be a fast and clear grade of the Trump presidency - period.

According to AP interviews and records released by the Georgia Democratic Party, the lawyer for the election-security advocates, David Cross, notified both the Federal Bureau of Investigation and Kemp's counsel Saturday morning that a citizen had alerted him to the flaw.

Citing a potential conflict of interest, Democrats, including former President Jimmy Carter, have unsuccessfully appealed for Kemp to step aside as secretary of state until after the election. Then they could have used the information gathered to alter voter registrations en masse, an action that would potentially compromise the entire election. Kemp counters that he's following state and federal law and that it's Abrams and her affiliated voting advocacy groups trying to help people, including noncitizens, cast ballots illegally.
