I just finished watching the live coverage of the Wisconsin Elections Commission meeting this morning. At the tail end of the meeting the commission distributed an email they had just received from Homeland Security stating that the previous report from Friday that Election Commission web sites had been scanned by the Russians was actually incorrect, but that the scanning had been of the Department of Workforce Development site. Apparently there was some mixup of IP addresses of the servers. We will have more information on this when it becomes available. 

This is stupifying. If this is the general quality of work being done on investigations, it's not very clear that we can trust much of any news coming from DHS on Internet hacking.

For disclosure purposes - my web development company Cruiskeen Consulting LLC does some consulting work with the Wiscosnin Elections Commission.
