Kuster Working With FBI After Hackers Access Democrats' Data

New Hampshire Congresswoman Annie Kuster says hackers may have accessed her personal information as part of a breach that targeted the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee.

The Democrat tells WMUR-TV she's working with the FBI and national security experts. She says "we're increasing our own security on all of our systems."

Further information was not available.

Last week, after receiving a deluge of obscene voicemails and text messages, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi informed fellow Democrats of "an electronic Watergate break-in."

Pelosi said the breach targeted the committee and other Democratic Party entities. She said as a result, a mix of personal and official information of Democratic members and hundreds of congressional staff, purportedly from a hack of the DCCC, was posted online.
