Russian Hackers Pull Off Prank Phone Calls to McCain and Maxine Waters

Two Russian hackers, who go by the names Vovan and Lexus, pulled off two prank phone calls; one to Sen. John McCain and another to Rep. Maxine Waters. In the calls they claimed to be the Prime Minister of Ukraine. They spoke of the need to increase sanctions on Russia with both of them, and it should be investigated by US authorities as to whether they released secret information to the hackers.

In the Maxine Waters call, Vovan and Lexus made the claim that the Russians had hacked the elections in Limpopo. Limpopo does not exist, but is a place in a Russian children’s fairy tale. Maxine Waters assumed Limpopo did exist, and promised to lend assistance to the deposed President of Limpopo.

In both calls, the two hackers actually mentioned their own names, as if daring the two to recognize the prank, but neither caught on.

How is it that two pranksters were able to talk with McCain and Waters, and be believed? It is a sad statement of where the world is going that two pranksters can fool a Senator and a Representative. Or maybe it is just the stupidity of McCain and Waters.

    Fools are easily fooled. They desperate narcissists. They jump before leaping. McCain has never been a person who makes good choices. A perfect tool. Waters….what a waste of space.

    For the last 4 days, I have searched in earnest for validation that it is actually John McCain’s voice that is being heard on this so-called phone call. It surely sounds like his voice but the audio is extremely clear, as if from a streaming audio broadcast. The prank is, otherwise, very well done. I am no fan of Senator McCain, to say the least, and if the voice in the audio is actually from McCain, it is extremely troubling. At this point in time, there has not been a peep from McCain, the “mainstream” media, Fox, Rush, Hannity, Levin, or any of my regular sources. I first saw the video on Gateway Pundit. I saw that it was picked up by some others in the blogosphere, including Alex Jones (who I perceive as the least trustworthy of the lot), but there the trail grows cold and dead. It would appear that none of my usual heros on the right has the courage to touch this one. I am sure they have heard the prank call. I am at a loss to explain the non-reaction of all mentioned entities, other than to think they know something the rest of us don’t. At this rate, that “something” may remain unknown forever – story dies, the end. So sad.
