The White House Just Published People's Personal Data Online

Citizens voicing complaints about the White House's election integrity commission's request for voter data might be surprised that their information has been made available via the White House web site.

The Presidential Advisory Commission on Election Integrity was under fire earlier this month for asking states to send it voter information, including names and voting history. He is seeking the names, dates of birth and Social Security information of voters as well as other data.

Hosemann is one of the first Republican secretaries of state to refuse the commission's request. TPM only published screengrabs from the documents that do not include identifying information.

"The concessions we have already gained from the commission represent an important victory for public accountability". That was a mistake; of the dozens of comments received from the general public, the overwhelming majority of them were harshly critical, to put it mildly. But the figure is striking nonetheless, with some county election officials reporting that they've never seen anything quite like it in their careers.

And in fact, those comments have, indeed, been published by the Commission on its website; you can view them here, via Whitehouse.gov.

The White House defended the publication of the personal information of the commenters, noting that everyone was warned that might happen. "Whether or not it's legal to disclose this personal information, it's clearly improper, and no responsible White House would do this", former Deputy Secretary of Labor Chris Lu told Engadget. But some say that regardless of the legality, the White House has a moral obligation to protect sensitive data.

Kobach did not immediately respond to a request for comment for this article. When it published the comments, the White House didn't remove any of the personal information, meaning numerous comments are accompanied by personal details of the person who wrote it.
