Report: Wisconsin one of seven states compromised by Russians in 2016 election

Posted: Updated:
WASHINGTON, D.C. -

A new report shows Wisconsin is one of seven states "compromised" by Russia before or during the 2016 presidential election.

NBC News reports that top secret intelligence requested by President Obama identified seven states where there was substantial evidence of compromise by the Russians before the election as part of a broad based covert operation.

The states are: Alaska, California, Arizona, Texas, Wisconsin, Illinois, and Florida.

Officials tell NBC News breaches included entry into state websites by the Russians and penetration of actual voter registration databases.

However, Wisconsin denies its election systems were compromised. The State's Chief election official responded to the report by saying in part, "Wisconsin's voter registration system and voting systems are secure."
