UPDATE: Dem Congressional Staffer Charged With Doxxing Republican Senators

UPDATE: On Saturday we reported that the home/office addresses and home/cell phone numbers of Republican Senators, Lindsey Graham, Orrin Hatch and Mike Lee had, for a short period of time, been added to their Wikipedia pages in the illegal practice that is known as doxxing.

We noted that Mike Tokes has been investigating internet crimes such as doxxing long enough to identify the source of the intrusive IP address:

According to Tokes, the two vandal IP’s had been identified previously for engaging in doxxing and vandalism.

The Washington Times also reported that at least one of the Senators had been victimized:

According to Caleb Hull, director of content at the Republican technology firm Targeted Victory, the wife of Mr. Hatch “has been receiving calls nonstop ON HER BIRTHDAY and their home address was made public.”

David Reaboi, a national security expert, claimed that at least one IP address traced back to the offices of radical leftist, Representative Maxine Waters:

That much may be true but according to an early breaking report from Fox News, the staffer identified as Jackson Cosko was arrested today.  He was working for Representative Sheila Jackson Lee not Maxine Waters as originally reported:

U.S. Capitol Police said 27-year-old Jackson Cosko was charged with making public restricted personal information, witness tampering, threats in interstate communication, unauthorized access of a government computer, identity theft, second-degree burglary and unlawful entry. Police added that the investigation was continuing and more charges could be filed.

Reports are circulating tonight that additional Republicans may have been similarly doxxed and that additional arrests may be forthcoming.

 

Elder Patriot – A report has surfaced that the home/office addresses and home/cell phone numbers of Republican Senators, Lindsey Graham, Orrin Hatch and Mike Lee had, for a short period of time, been added to their Wikipedia pages in the illegal practice that is known as doxxing.

David Reaboi, a national security expert, claims that at least one IP address traces back to the offices of radical leftist, Representative Maxine Waters:

CongressEdits is a bot account that automatically retweets edits to Wikipedia made anonymously from IP addresses associated with the U.S. Congress.  

The IP address 143.231.249.130 linked to this edit is identified as belonging to a computer linked to Representative Maxine Waters staffer Kathleen Sengstock:

HERE IS THE LINK

This would certainly be in keeping with the aggressive “attack mode” mentality that Rep. Waters has been advocating:

It appears the best defense being offered the the source, by online sleuths, is the IP address can’t possibly be from where it appears to originate from because that person would have to be “braintarded”  not to know it could be traced back to them.

It’s hard to see how that eliminates Maxine Waters, don’t ya think?
