Texas attorney general exposes millions of voters’ Social Security numbers
Thursday, April 26, 2012 16:29 EDT -- The Raw Story

The State of Texas Attorney General's office was ordered to turn over a voter data base to plaintiff attorneys in a case involving Texas' voter ID law.

But wouldn't ya know it, even though the office was instructed to only release the last 4 digits of social security numbers, somebody somehow managed to make a convenient "mistake" and the data base records show the complete SS numbers !!!!!!


IMO
I say this was not a "mistake".

I say it was deliberate. Possibly a paid mole had infiltrated the office.

Probably a cheap attempt to discredit the Texas Attorney General for defending the voter ID law.

More sour grapes by potential sore losers ?




The office of Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott mistakenly gave attorneys access to millions of Social Security numbers in a case against the state’s voter ID law, officials admitted Wednesday.

The numbers were included with a voter database the state was ordered to turn over to plaintiff attorneys. Abbott’s office reportedly said that only the last four digits were supposed to be visible, but they were later informed that was not the case, and that up to 6.5 million Social Security numbers were compromised.

Abbott’s office insists the data was not exposed to the public. He reportedly dispatched police officers to collect copies of the voter database, which was contained on encrypted hard drives sent to lawyers in Boston, Washington and New York.
This could also make "new identities" available for more vote fraud


Notice how quickly Texas Democratic Party spokeswoman Rebecca Acuna jumps into this .....

Texas Democratic Party spokeswoman Rebecca Acuna told The San Antonio Express News that Abbott’s mistake would not have happened if he’d “spent as much time protecting Texans as he does trying to disenfranchise them.”

Her message is approximately the same as the Obama administration’s. The Department of Justice (DOJ) announced last month that it would block the Texas voter ID law, which requires voters to present a photo identification before casting a ballot.
I think you got to somebody in the Attorney General's office Ms. Acuna. Very clever. But not a new trick.



Republicans favor ID laws because they fear an orchestrated campaign of voter fraud could tip elections against them. There is, however, no evidence of widespread voter fraud occurring anywhere in the U.S.

Instead, ID laws have been empirically demonstrated to drive down the number of votes (PDF) cast for Democrats by minorities, students, the poor and the elderly, who are less likely to carry a photo ID.
AND, the ID laws keep the same people from voting multiple times too !!


Hmmm

You can't vote multiple times. Go ahead. Try it.
There's only one vote that comes through on the registered voter.

Don't even get me started on how corrupt the Texas Republican party is.

Voter id laws are RACIST!!!

Disinfranchiesement really now?

Considering by law in all 50 states of the union every driver is required by law to have their drivers license everytime they get into a automobile to go vote because millions of Americans drive to go vote.

So its too much of a hassle to ask for something they already have on them and then of course their strawman argument is a drivers license "costs too much".

Really? 10 bucks is a burden or 20?

Hell why don't they subsidize it then never mind they love voter fraud they are good at so good dead people and felons and illegals vote.

Meh

Boston, Washington and New York? Could he have chosen any crookedier places to send them? Geesh.

We can't vote twice. Our voting precincts have a set of voter login sheets and BOTH volunteers check your name off the list ... one of which you sign.

This entire year has been a major mess for Texan voters.

Now Why would somebody vote more than once with the same name


New fake ID is established and registered in other States and districts.

That's one way they do it.

Happens in Chicago all the time.
