The inability of Democrats to implement strong information security protocols are coming around to bite them in the ass again. In another embarrassing dump of hacked data, the party’s secret cache of contact info on high-rolling donors is about to be revealed to the public. The hacker Guccifer 2.0 – who has become the gremlin on the wing of the Clinton campaign – has rattled cages and made assholes throughout the establishment pucker with his latest strike on the corrupt Democrats.
In an “exclusive”, The Hill is reporting that “Hacker leaks personal info of Dem donors”:
The hacker or hackers behind the cyberattack on Democratic groups resurfaced Friday, leaking a new batch of documents exclusively to The Hill.
The hack, widely attributed to Russia, targeted Democrats and Democratic entities including the Democratic National Committee (DNC) and the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC)
The documents released to The Hill are only the first section of a much larger cache. The bulk, the hacker said, will be released on WikiLeaks. A few pages, including cell phone numbers and personal email addresses of House Democrats, were posted to Guccifer 2.0’s website Friday night.
Many of the documents sent to The Hill center around a DCCC fundraising dinner held at the house of Virginia donor Tori Winkler Thomas, featuring Obama, Pelosi, Rep. Don Beyer (D-Virg.) and DCCC Chairman Ben Ray Luján.
The package appears to include forms used to vet attendees, a seating chart, thank you notes, place cards name tags, and annotated lists of targets for ticket sales including follow-up plans — one name marked with “DB,” presumably for Don Beyer, reads “spoke with but said she is tapped out now due to candidate checks, following up anyway.”
The target donor databases included in the cache include contact information, Social Security numbers and past donation values. Since the dinner cost $33,000 a head – though memos note Beyer was selling tickets for the bargain price of $16,000 – those past donation values are routinely very high.
Individually tailored memos to all featured Democrats provide thorough biographies of anybody who a headliner might come in contact with. The memo for President Obama includes a detailed bio of Nancy Pelosi.
Talking points for the event, which were more or less explanations of legal donation maximums and what those donations go to, include a section on the DCCC legal fund, maximum donation of $100,200, and lists “Provides critical resources for the counting of ballots” as a top priority.
It will all of course be blamed on the Russians (and Donald Trump) because the meme has now been established that all who dare to stand between Hillary and the Oval Office are agents of Putin. You can bet your bottom dollar that once her highness slimes her way into the presidency – with media assistance – that she will shortly thereafter order the NSA and FBI to go after millions of Americans using that very pretense. It’ll be reminiscent of Stalin’s great purge unless she is stopped, and that prospect is looking more unlikely by the day with the rallying around the flag against an alleged foreign enemy opposing her.
Even if Guccifer 2.0 IS a Russian it doesn’t invalidate the revelations in the data that the Democratic party is the equivalent of a vast criminal enterprise. In a country with a functional legal system, the party would be subject to RICO laws but that isn’t going to happen under Barack Obama who is the biggest crime lord to come out of Chicago since Al Capone.
The stuff provided to The Hill is just a taste as WikiLeaks will be publishing more, that is if Obama doesn’t dial up a drone strike on Julian Assange first.
