Stupid Congress Tricks

Not long ago, we blogged about the Chairman of the House Judiciary Commitee, John Conyers, and his decision to politicize the committee by deciding to ask for confidential whistleblowers to come forward if they had information regarding the Justice Department since 2001.

So what happened? TPM has the story…

…in an email sent out today, the committee inadvertently sent the email addresses of all the would-be whistleblowers to everyone who had written in to the tipline. The committee email was sent to tipsters who had used the website form, including presumably whistleblowers themselves, and all of the recipients of the email were accidentally included in the “to:” field — instead of concealing those addresses with a so-called blind carbon copy or “bcc:”. […]

Compounding the mistake, the committee later sent out a second email attempting to recall the original email; it, too, included all recipients in the “to:” field, according to a recipient of the emails.

Attaboy, John. You’re a Real Man of Genius……

It’s a catchy tune, and you can dance to it! Doug Ross takes off, check it out.

Not only are their social graces deficient, but so is their netiquette.

BTW, remembered to install spyware blaster, when I got home, and ran a spyware scan. Not one critter of any kind. The scan I ran last night, showed 71 items, including traces. Spyware blaster really does work.
