Once against we have an aide of a Democrat convicted of a felony and is now headed to federal prison after attacking Senate Republicans.
Samantha DeForest-Dave, who is an aide to Democrat Senator Maggie Hassan assisted another of Hassan's aides, Jackson Cosko with the hacking.
Together, they broke into Hassan's office and hacked congressional computers to obtain the names and personal information of Republican politicians.
Jackson knew she was cooked and pled guilty to the crimes claiming that they were all because of the Kavanaugh confirmation. What a joke!
Cosko was already sentenced to four years in federal prison for the crime.
After Hassan fired him in May 2018, Cosko lent Deforest-Davis money for her rent but requested a favor in return. That summer, spurred by anger over Kavanaugh’s Senate confirmation hearings, Cosko repeatedly used Deforest-Davis’ keys to access the senator’s office after hours and hack the congressional computers.
He then released the home addresses and phone numbers of Senators Lindsey Graham, Orrin Hatch and Mike Lee on Wikipedia and Twitter, followed later by publicizing information on Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and Congressman and at the time Speaker of the House Paul Ryan.
Assistant U.S. Attorney Tejpal Chawla called for a sentence of six months house arrest and five years probation, arguing that Deforest-Davis was central to Cosko’s scheme.
“Without Ms. Deforest-Davis there is no Jackson Cosko,” Chawla said.
Chawla recognized that Cosko manipulated the relationship and preyed upon Deforest-Davis’ financial needs, but he urged Hogan to order a sentence that would deter future congressional staff from carrying out similar offenses.
DeForest-Davis was sentenced to a suspended sentence of 180 days in prison, 200 hours of community service, and two years of supervised probation.
Prosecutors wanted DeForest-Davis to serve six months of house arrest, five years probation, and 600 hours of community service.
Instead, the Reagan appointed U.S. District Judge Thomas Hogan was a little more lenient and sentenced her to 200 hours of community service and 2 years probation. In court, the judge said, “This sentence really is meant to help you.”
I'm sure it's really going to help by showing her that you might get a slap on the wrist if you commit a felony. Or maybe he was being quite literal in that she should have been sentenced to more prison time than that.

If Your Kids are on TikTok, You May Want to Hear This
TikTok is an addicting app where people post short video clips that can either tell a story, be a dance, comedic, sad, etc. It seems to be a spin off of the popular app "Vine" that went away a few years ago.
I am guilty of having the app to watch the videos posted by others, but I deleted it a while back because it wasted too much time. However, the more I learn about the insidiousness of it, the happier I am that I no longer use it!
