This is flat out wrong and needs investigated:
Millions of Social Security numbers are now in the hands of people who aren’t supposed to have them.
It’s a big mistake leading straight back to one of the men running for Ohio Governor. The private records were mistakenly released by the Secretary of State’s office.
Voter lists are crucial to political parties. They give campaign workers an efficient way to target potential supporters. The lists usually consist of the names of registered voters, their addresses, their party affiliation, and whether that person voted in the last election.
Social security numbers aren’t supposed to be revealed.
But they have been because of a mistake by Secretary of State Ken Blackwell’s campaign.
“That’s the problem with being a public official. Your mistakes have serious consequences,” said Catherine Turcer from Ohio Citizen Action, a non-partisan political watchdog group
“This couldn’t have come at a worse time for Ken Blackwell,” Turcer observed.
What gets me is that something that has to do with his duty as Secretary of State has now overlapped to his Campaign for Governor. His campaign people do not have access to social security numbers. So why does his campaign? Sounds like something fishy to me.
