An alleged spam kingpin with possible ties to election meddling in the United States was arrested in Spain last week under a U.S. international warrant. The alleged spam czar, Pyotr Levashov, was taken into custody in Barcelona while vacationing with his family. Levashov was arrested for interfering with the 2016 U.S. presidential elections, the Russian news outlet RT reported, but a U.S. Justice Department official said the arrest was a criminal matter without any national security connections.

What exactly is election tampering? Because I noticed mainstream media ignored many stories on Hillary Clinton and spent way more bashing Trump. Wouldn't this be called domestic election tampering? It used to be news organizations provided mostly equal time to candidates and kept opinions to a minimum so as to not taint voters. Sorry but elections in general this last series were full of false news, overhyped stories and ignored stories. The social sites were full of the same and were never challenged as fake or fact. Of course foreign governments have just as much influence given the access they have to American voters. But no more so than Obama and the Democrat's trying to influence the Israel elections. Sorry but this is a two way street that is happening. Its not just the Russian's trying these tactics. Clearly Trump was able to coral voters better than Hillary and I might add regardless of all the negative press he got. My advice to the Democrat's back when the DNC was hacked was use better passwords. Same with John Podesta who obviously never bothered to use a good password either. Its obvious influences will happen and unless we have clear proof of actual voter fraud all political parties will just have to accept that outside and inside influence have become part of the political process.
