The Politico has received an opposition research file from the Alaska Democrats. You can read it in PDF here.
In the file, the Democrats have released Sarah Palin's social security number minus the last four digits. Also tied to the information are her various home addresses.
Back in 2005, Democrats used Michael Steele's social security number to get his credit record.
It is atrocious that the Democrats would not only seek out Sarah Palin's social security number, but release it in opposition research to the press.
We need to know who did this. We also need to know what happened. We also need to know if it was used to bolster the Democrats' opposition research.
When it happened to Michael Steele, it turns out the Democrats knew about it and did nothing.
They cannot not take action now.

It is real yo and here is the pdf file www.politico.com... And another story about it. www.politico.com...
First, if he knows that Democrats released it, he has better sources than I do.
Second, the Social Security umber is missing its last four digits. That is, it's already been redacted, in an apparent excess of caution by whoever prepared it from public record. You can't get very far with a five-digit Social Security number. (Similarly redacted Social Security numbers are available for a small fee on such sinister tools as Lexis-Nexis.)
The item's first sentence is also inaccurate. "The Politico has received an opposition research file from the Alaska Democrats."
The notion that we received the file from the Alaska Democrats appears to come from sources inside Erickson's head.
Finally, Drudge is teasing the story with the news that Palin's home phone number has been released. You can find the same number in any online telephone book.

Why exactly should anyone believe at face value that this came from the Democrats or anywhere else you might say it came from?
