South Dakota Gov. Noem says phone number hacked, blames Jan. 6 committee leak

South Dakota Republican Gov. Kristi Noem claims her cell phone number was hacked, blaming it on her Social Security number being exposed with hundreds of documents released last year by the House Jan. 6 committee.

In a press release on Monday, the governor’s office said Noem’s cell phone has been used to make hoax calls, in which she was not involved.

“Callous mishandling of information has real world consequences,” Noem said. “If you get such a call from my number, know that I had no involvement.”

She said she has urged the U.S. Attorney General and numerous congressional committees to investigate the matter, which included leaking of her family’s personal information.

Noem also notified the South Dakota Fusion Center was notified of the breach. The center is a state agency that collects criminal intelligence.
