Bill Brian, current Durham County Board of Elections (BOE) chair and a founding member of Morningstar Law Group, was quoted by The Herald Sun regarding reports of Russian hacking allegations during the 2016 presidential election. Last week, Durham’s BOE released a statement refuting several points that were featured in a New York Times story:
“Neither Durham County or the Durham County Board of Elections, its members or its staff ever was warned prior to the 2016 election of any potential hacking by anyone, including Russia,” said Durham County Board of Elections chair Bill Brian. “Even now, Durham County officials are not aware of any evidence that would suggest a hacking, Russian or otherwise.”
