Your July 28 column “Russia’s finger now on the U.S. campaign scale” by foreign affairs conservative Max Boot pointed out the seriousness of the recent Russian hacking of the Democratic National Committee’s email. Boot wrote: “Such a development ought to alarm all Americans, even Republicans.”
The damage has not been limited to the presidential race. Here in North Carolina, Gov. Pat McCrory has used the same stolen espionage to attack Attorney General Roy Cooper, ironically over McCrory’s notorious House Bill 2 law.
McCrory may have jumped on the KGB and hacked information before thinking that he had become a pawn in a larger plot to affect American elections. At a minimum, McCrory owes Cooper an apology and a denunciation of the Russian espionage.
