    ...last year's REPUBLICAN candidate for Secretary of State, former Hamilton County Clerk of Courts Greg Hartmann, who had the brilliant idea to post traffic tickets on his Web site without redacting social security numbers, birth dates and signatures? The man whose ONLY qualification that he could tout (since he had zero elections experience) was his management acumen, even while some were referring to the Web site as a "one-stop shopping mall for identify theives?"

    I think Republicans know that fairer, more open and more participatory elections are coming and it's hard because that means they have to come up with ideas that will help improve the economy and provide Ohioans with jobs, education, health care and housing. It's a lot of work, I know. It would have been easier to elect Hartmann who said that there are no problems with elections and touchscreen machines are totally reliable (even though he had no experience or expertise to know) and besides, he's the son of Dick Cheney's lawyer, exactly the kind of guy I'd want to oversee a presidential election in Ohio!

    •  I didn't say anything about the republican (0+ / 0-)

      Hell I didn't say anything bad about Brunner.  However we have had more than one problem already in our state with private information being lost or stolen.  Frankly to be honest I don't know why the county BOE can't do this work.  In probably 70 of the counties it would be trivial work that could be done by someone who already works there.  I just find a fault with this rah rah diary.  I would like to see what comes out of the court case in January before we commit are voter database to this company.   It might not be anything, and they could also be a bunch of skunks.

      And how believing in protecting personal information makes me a republican is a bit ludicrous.  You could have clicked on my name and see that while I don't comment everyday, I don't fit the GOP mold.

      •  I don't think anastasia was berating your comment (0+ / 0-)

        She just added some additional "flavor" to the mix.

        But, yeah, I share your concerns with the privacy violations in five states by that firm.

        But, "lost data" and breach of security seems to be everywhere.  Even IBM recently had a security breach and lost employees' DOB and SS# information.
