So, the Coleman campaign really screws up and posts donors confidential financial information as late a January. Possibly breaking state law, the campaign doesn’t fess up and warn donors whose information was exposed until Wednesday.
Kelly McShane, whose job is to secure information in the banking industry, said he learned that the last four digits of his American Express card — and the four-digit security code used to verify the card — were posted online when a reporter e-mailed him.
“I’m in IT security for a bank, and I can tell you that this is so … irresponsible that I can’t believe it,” said McShane, who had donated $100 to the campaign online.
Then, in an attempt to shift blame, the campaign tries to spin a story of partisan enemies (read “Franken campaign”) hacking the site.
