Russians Hack German Vote-O-Meter In Futile “Trump For Chancellor” Bid

Germany’s infamous Wahl-O.Meter app, a popular program that uses a series of questions to help undecided German voters (some 50 percent of the electorate) find the political party that suits them best, has been compromised by a group of mean and nasty Russian hackers, apparently in a vain attempt to get Donald Trump elected Chancellor of Germany.

Unfortunately, however, there is no such thing as a direct ballot for the office of German Chancellor so that “went into the pants” (was a complete flop), as the Germans like to say. But you can’t blame those clever Ruskies for not trying.

Since its inception 15 years ago, the Wahl-O-Mat’s main focus has been to mobilize younger voters. In fact, all 38 questions posed in the app chosen by a group of young and first-time voters. “Young people have contributed towards this product, which is aimed at furthering the political education,” Krüger said. “That is what lies at the very core.”

  1. Putting your faith in the wisdom of youth is a wonderful virtue pose. How is that exciting election campaign going? People always get what they deserve in the end, often without lube.

  2. Some enterprising young hacker type person should hack that thing so it spits out “you need to vote for God-Emperor Donald Trump”…the freak out it would cause would be awesome!
    Just throwing that suggestion out there to anyone with the skills to do it — think of the headlines.
