Pat Brady: “We will find the source of the problem”


 Chicago, IL – Illinois Republican Party Chairman Pat Brady today said the Party’s web site, www.WeAreIllinois.org, was hit by a cyber attack, making it virtually impossible for the public to access the site for much of the day.

“It’s obvious these are last minute campaign dirty tricks,” said Brady. “We are working to remedy the problem as quickly as we can so that voters can access all of our information and resources.”

Brady described the attack as one in which a software program is used to constantly access the site, overloading the servers for extended periods. “It effectively locks up our site,” Brady explained. He apologized to anyone who had trouble trying to access the site on Sunday.

Brady said staff is working to track down the offender. “We will find the source of the problem and we will prosecute to the fullest extent of the law possible,” said Brady.
