White House releases sensitive personal information of voters worried about their sensitive personal information
The White House on Thursday issued an e-mail audience that received offerings from voters’ comments on its electoral integrity board.
The commission criticized it widely when it came out in the public asking for personal information, including addresses, partial social security numbers and party affiliations, all voters in the country.
It further infuriated voters by providing publicly published this information.
Voters have taken this outrage to the White House Trump and election commission, often using a jaded language of the 112 pages of emails to be unveiled this week.
“Many people get their identity stolen, which will affect the economy,” another wrote.
“I respectfully request, as an American citizen, legally eligible to vote for two decades, I leave my electoral data and my history, do not do it and do nothing with it,” said another.
Unfortunately, for these voters and others who have written in the Trump administration did not cancel their personal information from the emails before publishing to the public.
In some cases, e-mail messages contain not only the names, but e-mail addresses, postal addresses, work phone numbers and the location of people concerned about the fact that such information is made available to the public.
The Washington Post does not publish this information because, in most cases, it does not appear that people are aware that their comments would be shared by the White House.
Emails were sent to the e-mail address of the Election Integrity Commission which the administration requested from the secretaries of state to send data files.
“This request is very disturbing,” one wrote. “The federal government is trying to get the name, address, date of birth, political party and social security number of every voter in the country.” The e-mail, released by the White House, contained the names sender and his house.
“However, security email address?” Asked another voter whose name and e-mail address were also published by the White House.
“The demand for information about the private electorate is offensive,” wrote a voter whose name, address, and e-mail address were published by the White House.
“I have withdrawn my name from the voters, and I am a Republican!” Wrote a voter whose name was released by the White House.
Federal agencies often seek and disseminate public comments on proposed laws.
Regulations.gov, the federal government clearinghouse for public comment, includes a set of detailed guidelines on how to submit comments, what kind of personal information is collected, and how that information may be used.
“Some agencies may require that personal information, such as their name and email address, be included in the comment form,” the site says.
The Securities and Exchange Commission, for example, warned commentators “to submit only the information they wish to publicly publish.”
Likewise, the Federal Trade Commission told participants that “published reviews include the commentator’s name and state / country and the full text of the commentary. Do not include sensitive or confidential information.”
