HILLARY CAMPAIGN SPLASHES PRIVATE E-MAIL ADDRESSES OF MEDIA STARS, INSIDERS
Hillary Clinton's senate campaign released the e-mail addresses of media stars and campaign insiders over the weekend after a software glitch nearly crippled the campaign's e-mail alert system.
"There's been a giant screw-up," said a staffer. "The names and addresses of recipients are not supposed to appearing in the e-mail!"
The nightmare began on Friday evening when a digital alert was sent out to more than a thousand reporters and political players by Hillary campaign staffer Karen Dunn.
The subject header read: "Heads-up, Hillary will be in Manhattan on Monday -- please look for the schedule on Sunday."
But Dunn was not aware that e-mail addresses -- including the unpublished and private addresses of Clinton insiders [campaign spokesman Howard Wolfson's Lap Top, firstname.lastname@example.org; famed Clinton poll-whiz Mark Penn, email@example.com] -- were exposed and naked to all on the list.
"I'm furious that my private address was sent out to everyone," said one angry media player contacted by the DRUDGE REPORT. "I don't even know how my name and address got on Mrs. Clinton's alert list... I never signed up for it."
