16 Jul White House Releases Personal Information of Voters Concerned About Their Personal Information
Washington D.C., USA – In a report last Friday, the White House published a collection of emails received from voters who expressed disagreement on sharing sensitive personal information to the Election Integrity Commission.
Many citizens criticized the commission for soliciting personal information, including partial security numbers, party affiliation, and addresses of voters in the country.
The White House did not appear to inform the public to avoid disclosing sensitive information in the emails. It also seemed the people were not aware their comments would be published.
But according to an email sent by Marc Lotter, Press Secretary to Mike Pence, the emails are treated as public comments of people appearing before the commission. The Commission’s Federal Register has a notice requesting for public comments, with it’s website stating that information indicated in the emails may be released.
The White House page was posted on July 13, while the Federal Register notice on soliciting comments was released on July 5.
