Samantha Deforest Davis, an aide to Sen. Maggie Hassan (D-NH) from August 2017 to December 2018, now faces federal charges for her involvement in a plan to publicly post personal information about Republican lawmakers during the Brett Kavanaugh Supreme Court confirmation hearings last year, according to Fox News.
Davis is accused of assisting another former Hassan aide, Jackson A. Cosko, 27. Cosko is now serving a four-year sentence after pleading guilty to five federal offenses in the scheme.
Cosko hacked several Senate computers and obtained personal information about Republican Senators involved in the hearings. He then published their home addresses and phone numbers on Wikipedia.
Prosecutors say Davis “wiped” the computers clean after they were hacked. She faces two misdemeanor charges, one federal count of aiding and abetting computer fraud and a District count of attempted evidence tampering.
It is so refreshing to see law-breaking Democrats held accountable for their actions. This will hopefully deter others from breaking the law in a similar fashion.
