Feds: Iran Behind 'Proud Boys' Email Attacks on Democratic Voters

Messages that threaten people to ‘vote for Trump or else’ are part of foreign adversaries’ attempts to interfere with the Nov. 3 election, according to feds.

Messages that threaten people to ‘vote for Trump or else’ are part of foreign adversaries’ attempts to interfere with the Nov. 3 election, according to feds.

Federal officials claim that Iranian threat actors are behind two separate email campaigns that assailed Democratic voters this week with threats to “vote for Trump or else.” The campaigns claimed to be from violent extremist group Proud Boys.

Two specific email campaigns — one on Tuesday Oct. 20 and one on Wednesday, Oct. 21 — threatened Democratic voters in Alaska, Arizona and Florida that attackers accessed “all of your information.” They warned that there would be dire repercussions if voters didn’t cast their ballot for President Trump in the upcoming election, according to a Wednesday Proofpoint report. The research came on the heels of a report from WUFT in Florida that the FBI was investigating threatening emails sent to Democratic voters in the state.

The emails of both campaigns were sent from addresses linked to the far-right, male-only group Proud Boys — “Proud Boys <info[@]officialproudboys[.]com>” on Oct. 20 messages and “Proud Boys <info[@]proudboysusa[.]com>” on Oct. 21 messages. However, federal officials claimed in a press conference late Wednesday that Iran had obtained some voter registration information and was actually behind the attack.
