The Trump administration proved today that either they can’t be trusted with sensitive personal information, or they are sending a message to those who complain about their policies with a big F*** Y**.
Recently, the Trump panel investigating voter fraud requested that the states provide sensitive voter information for analysis. 44 states refused to do so, either in whole or in part, because of concerns regarding voter privacy (see: States fight voter info requests).
Today, the White House released all of the sensitive personal information of people who sent emails concerned about Trump’s attempt to secure personal information. The White House not only released the content of the emails that had been sent, they released everything contained in the emails. In some cases, the released information included the sender’s name, email address, home addresses, phone numbers, and places of employment.
Any information included from the people who sent the below emails was released, including their names, email addresses and home address.
- “I respectfully request, as an American-born citizen legally eligible to vote for two decades, that you leave my voter data and history alone, do not publish it, and do nothing with it,”
- “This request is very concerning, the federal government is attempting to get the name, address, birth date, political party, and social security number of every voter in the country.”
- “You will open up the entire voting population to a massive amount of fraud if this data is in any way released,”
- “DO NOT RELEASE ANY OF MY VOTER DATA PERIOD,”
- “The request for private voter information is offensive,”
So is the Trump Administration really so stupid and insensitive to purposefully release the sensitive personal information of those citizens concern about the release of their personal information, or did they do it on purpose to irritate them further? Your guess is as good as ours.
