Clinton-era sensitive data missing from national archives
The National Archives is missing a hard disk with sensitive personal data from the Clinton Administration. Do you know how many trailer park bimbos’ phone numbers might be lost?
The National Archives lost a computer hard drive containing massive amounts of sensitive data from the Clinton administration, including Social Security numbers, addresses, and Secret Service and White House operating procedures, congressional officials said Tuesday.
One of former Vice President Al Gore’s three daughters is among those whose Social Security numbers were on the drive, but it was not clear which one. Other information includes logs of events, social gatherings and political records.
Archives spokeswoman Susan Cooper said in a written statement that the agency was preparing to notify affected individuals of the breach. The representative of former President Bill Clinton has been notified, but Cooper gave no indication whether the former president’s personal information was on the hard drive.
“The drive contains an as yet unknown amount of personally identifiable information of White House staff and visitors,” the statement added.
The FBI is conducting a criminal investigation of the matter, according to Rep. Edolphus Towns, D-N.Y., chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee. Towns and the committee’s senior Republican, Rep. Darrell Issa of California, said they would continue to seek more information.
