“The SacBee released the 19 million plus records that are available to the public???”
AND the personal/confidential information of their pitiful 52,000 subscribers.
Crazy, isn’t it?
Which brings up the question:
Would you rather be a proctologist's lawyer, or a lawyer's proctologist?
“So what is the Sac Bee doing with 19 million voting records anyway?”
The question to ask is how did the Bee get those records in a single database when the Federal government could not?
What was the Bee doing with the records in the first place?
Was this a sting?
I thought those were private records.
Well, you’re a professional so, they wouldn’t let you have it...
They already do...
Great. All ten of us Republicans in California are going to have crazies trying to firebomb our houses now. Oh well, once they dispatch us, the state will be pure as the Aryan Race.
Oh, yeah. I’ve done more firewall and server upgrades than I can count, and there was always one highly technical question we used to like to answer for the boss at the end: “Duh, is it still working?” I mean, come on, guys...
The voter registration rolls (lists of registered voters) are not available to the general public. However, California law allows certain voter information to be released to a member of the California Legislature or U.S. Congress, or to any candidate, any committee for or against a proposed ballot measure, any person for election, scholarly, journalistic, or political purpose, or for governmental purposes. Even in these cases, your social security number, driver license number, and signature will remain confidential.
The first step should be to fire the IT guy who left the door open - let him choose whether he wants the termination to be for malfeasance or incompetence - then fire his boss. Then conduct an investigation as to who else needs firing.
Another reason not to subscribe to newspapers.
Oh, and it will be interesting to see how many folks go the polls next year claiming to be Hugh Hefner.
“a legitimate or legal reason.” —> I’ll hazard a guess that it is for election reporting. It allows them to do all sorts of statistical analyses comparing actual vote tallies to registered voters.
Hope Trump got the records now to search for illegals and double state registered voters.
It’s crazy that they had that information.
California must be the king of illegal voting, too.
Or for target marketing.
