SOUTH CAROLINA - Democrats are calling out South Carolina’s inability to find out who hacked state’s revenue department.
They are now planning vigils around the scandal’s one-year anniversary.
The hackers obtained tax returns for nearly 6 million people and 700,000 businesses.
Democratic Party chairman Jaime Harrison calls the state’s response a “leadership failure.”
He observed a moment of silence after announcing the vigils Monday.
Taxpayers whose information was compromised by the hacking can start signing up this week for another round of free protection.
The state’s budget and control board awarded an $8 million contract to CS Identity Corporation earlier this month.
