About That Collection of Voter Information....

When Trumps trumped up commission on voter integrity asked for voter information from the states, the vast majority of them refused. I think Arkansas and New Jersey are the only ones so far.

One of the troubling aspects of the announcement was a statement about making all of the information public, apparently as some kind of nod to transparency. They quickly retracted that, but still wanted to "house" the information at the White House.

Well, that led to public comment and the public weighed in heavily against it. Not knowing what they would do with the data being the most common complaint.

Now the White House, in their infinite wisdom, decided to make those comments public - again, probably in the interest of transparency.

Unfortunately, they did exactly what everyone feared....

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.


This administration is so incompetent that no one should trust them with anything.

But they do have the nuclear codes.
