The Illinois State Board of Elections recent bout with a hacker got some national exposure Tuesday evening. CBS Late Show host Stephen Colbert introduced the Chairman of the Board, but he didn't exactly look like he was ready for an Illinois summer. In fact, it wasn't Charles Scholz, but instead someone with a Russian accent a much different name.



Chairman "Johnny Cowboy" had some less than helpful advice to avoid hacking in general.

 


The FBI is investigating the hack of the personal records of roughly 200,000 Illinois voters.
