Democrats: We Won’t Sell Voter Data for Commercial Use


In his statement on the co-op's plans, co-op Chairman Buckley maintained that Democrats had never considered selling their data commercially.

"The State Parties' goal is to sell proprietary IDs to progressive allies, non-profits and research institutions. No one has been thinking of selling data to for-profit corporations (except for some in the media)," the statement read.

Buckley, who is also the chair of the New Hampshire Democratic Party and the head of the Association of State Democratic Chairs, did not respond Friday to requests for comment.

Brighton did not respond to requests for comment, but in a Wednesday interview on the website TechPresident, acknowledged hearing complaints about selling data to corporations.

2. WTF? Dems selling data? That makes me want to remove my data from their

database, which would mean I can not vote in primaries!

I dont do facebook. by choice. I certainly will not belong to a party who sells my data to ANYONE.
And I have been a Dem for 55 years, fourth generation.
