    White House releases sensitive personal info of voters worried about their info

    White House releases sensitive personal information of voters worried about their sensitive personal information

    The White House on Thursday made public a trove of emails it received from voters offering comment on its Election Integrity Commission. The commission drew widespread criticism when it emerged into public view by asking for personal information, including addresses, partial social security numbers and party affiliation, on every voter in the country.
    Unfortunately for these voters and others who wrote in, the Trump administration did not redact any of their personal information from the emails before releasing them to the public. In some cases, the emails contain not only names, but email addresses, home addresses, phone numbers and places of employment of people worried about such information being made available to the public.
    The White House does not appear to have issued any such public guidelines or warnings before many of the emails were sent.

    "These are public comments, similar to individuals appearing before commission to make comments and providing name before making comments," said Marc Lotter, Press Secretary to Mike Pence, in an email. "The Commission’s Federal Register notice asking for public comments and its website make clear that information 'including names and contact information' sent to this email address may be released."

    The Federal Register notice soliciting comments was published on July 5. The White House page was published on July 13.

    Approximately half of the emails published by the White House were dated prior to July 5.


    The incompetence and tone deafness is almost funny.

    Almost.

    That is fucking awesome.

    Anyone that says anything bad about the White House in that pretext seems to have been publicly outed.

    It's the WH doxing private citizens.

    The presidential commission investigating alleged election fraud has released 112 pages of unredacted emails of public comment, raising further privacy concerns amid a legal challenge to the panel's request for sensitive voter data.

    In many cases, the emails, which are largely critical and often mocking of the Presidential Advisory Commission on Election Integrity led by Vice President Pence and Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach, contain expletives as well as the sender's email address.

    "This cavalier attitude toward the public's personal information is especially concerning given the commission's request for sensitive data on every registered voter in the country," Theresa Lee, a staff attorney for the American Civil Liberties Union's Voting Rights Project, said.

    If you think all your personal info is at risk - then you won't register to vote. Or you will ask to be un-registered.

    Hundreds of Colorado voters clamor to unregister in wake of Trump administrationís request for information
    In Denver, at least 472 people had canceled their voter registrations since July 3 ó a staggering jump from the 20 people who did so over the previous two weeks.

    Just shameful.

    I think running the government like a corrupt Russian mafia organization is a great idea. Who's with me?

    LOL ... no ... you have it backwards.

    If the White House hadn't released all the names and addresses and emails of the people who wrote in, that would have been blackmail. I bet all those people who were doxxed by the White House are glad they weren't blackmailed.
    Thanks from boontito
