Senator Hassan Has Not Notified Victims of Data Theft

From the Daily Caller by Luke Rosiak, including comment by NLPC’s Tom Anderson:

Sen. Maggie Hassan’s computer system was hacked in what prosecutors called the “largest data theft in Senate history,” yet there is no evidence she informed constituents who may be at risk of identity theft as a result — despite being one of the most vocal advocates for laws requiring hacking victims to do just that.

The New Hampshire Democrat’s former IT aide Jackson Cosko was sentenced to four years in prison June 19 for pilfering essentially all the office’s data by paying another Hassan staffer to help him break into the office late at night. One of Hassan’s key issues in the Senate has been requiring companies to notify Americans whose personal information they fail to protect. Hassan sponsored a federal law to that end, but it has not passed.

Kamenar represents Miller on a partial pro bono basis, and is supported by the National Legal and Policy Center.

The motion also cites Brett Kavanaugh to support Miller’s argument that Mueller should have been appointed as … Read More ➡

Google Defends Profane, Hate-Filled Tweet by Employee

 

Dave Hogue’s LinkedIn photo

Upon the swearing in of Brett Kavanaugh as the newest Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court after he was falsely accused by Democrats of sexual attacks and impropriety, Google lead designer Dave Hogue let loose on Twitter with a profane rant that condemned Republicans to a painful eternal destiny of torment.

And he wasn’t fired for it – at least not that we know of.

The now-deleted tweet said:

You are finished, @GOP. You polished the final nail for your own coffins.

F***. YOU. ALL. TO. HELL.

I hope the last images burned into your slimy, evil, treasonous retinas are millions of women laughing and clapping and celebrating as your souls descend into the flames.

Just as noteworthy and revealing about the corporate culture that Google fosters is the fact that the company, rather than issue a direct repudiation, instead defended its business.
