WASHINGTON (AP) An Internal Revenue Service employee took home personal information on about 20,000 IRS workers, former workers and contractors, putting the data at risk for public release, the agency said Tuesday.
The employee took home a computer thumb drive containing names, Social Security numbers and addresses of the workers, and plugged the drive into an unsecure home network, IRS Commissioner John Koskinen said in an email to employees.

Man, that would have had some heavy consequences where I worked in government.
This individual needs an immediate promotion.
I have no doubt that IRS employees cut their friends and family refunds (with a nice return to them). Like government investigators are going to stop them?
maybe this worker knows something they want to share..cause obama thug sure don’t want to share...
and Privacy??? that no longer counts, not since the selection of Hussein obama...
Of course the privacy information is paramount, but the fact that workers are just slamming USB devices into the network and uploading and downloading whatever the heck they want should also set off alarms. No security. No protection. Stuxnet?? How’d that get here?!
Sorry, but they do not!
Hope he puts it on the internet.
Think of it as an “Employee Roster”.
Then he would lerner his lesson!
When individuals in Government become complacent and corrupt, we can kiss this experiment in government goodbye!
This seems to be happening everyplace - and I blame the Democratic party culture.
Democratic party culture
Born in the brackish swamp of Washington D.C
It Grew to abnormal size and now uses the entire Nation as its’ wee wee Petri Dish
Henry Bowman published a roster of BATF agents.
If I have the right to protect my social security number so do the dopes who work for the IRS..whether they are honest upright citizens or not
we are either a Nation Of Laws or a Nation....of scofflaws
there is no Middle Gray Area
AgencyPersons are public servants, despite their delusions to the contrary.
As such, they have no expectation of privacy, nor should they be given such privacy.
AgencyPersons know where you live, and have all your data. The public has a far greater right to such data regarding their servants than the servants have regarding their masters.
As Braken’s book, “Enemies Foreign And Domestic” made clear - anonymous Pooblik Servants can easily act as tyrants because they know the public can’t reach them.
A case can be made for AgencyPersons having financial privacy. However, as the AgencyPerson knows where you live, so too should you know where it lives.
Tables turned, now it’s their turn to cry.
We cannot afford to be selective about the LAW.
We are either a Nation of Laws or a Nation of Scofflaws
if I can expect to have my privacy protected...it will be by law
If we dont hold the law to the same standard...for those with whom we disagree we are as screwed up as the progressives who’s hobby it is to trample on the rights of others
I do not have a right to thier social security number...which was ....included..... in the stew of info.
