News Tech: Republican candidate for secretary of state Kristina Karamo claimed her Twitter account had been “hacked” about an hour after sending a link to a forecast that former President Donald Trump would win the election again this year.
The first link was published on Wednesday at 12:30 pm via Karamo’s account. The link led to a post on Truth Social that erroneously asserted Trump “won in 2020.”
“Get your popcorn, beer and pop now while you can still get it, and when Trump is back, sit back and enjoy the show. Nothing can stop what is coming.”
Karamo claimed a reporter contacted her team about the initial Tweet during a news conference on Wednesday.
The GOP candidate described claims she supported the initial message as “nonsense.”
Karamo has focused her campaign for secretary of state on initiatives to boost election security in Michigan. There is a section about identity theft on her website as well. “With criminals continually creating new schemes to victimize citizens in the digital world, the SoS must deploy and manage system such that the latest advances in technology and investigative techniques protect our identities,” Karamo’s campaign website says.
In September 2021, Trump offered his support to Karamo for secretary of state. He’s scheduled to host a benefit for her in New Jersey the following week. After voicing her worries regarding what she claimed to have witnessed while serving as a poll challenger in Detroit in November, Karamo attracted widespread attention.
On December 1, 2020, she spoke before the state Senate Oversight Committee regarding the election and endorsed a brief that aimed to grant the Republican-controlled Legislature the authority to certify election results.
