Trump's hotels lost 70,000 customers credit card numbers to thieves and hid it from those harmed.

Authorities said the company knew by June 2015 that hotels in New York City, Miami, Chicago, Honolulu, Las Vegas and Toronto had been compromised but didn't notify customers for four months, a violation of New York business law requiring prompt notification. They said a hacker infiltrated the hotel group's payment processing system in May 2014.

"It is vital in this digital age that companies take all precautions to ensure that consumer information is protected and that, if a data breach occurs, it is reported promptly to our office, in accordance with state law," said Attorney General Eric Schneiderman, a Democrat.

Safeguarding customer data is a top priority, a Trump Hotels Collection spokeswoman said.

"Unfortunately, cyber criminals seeking consumer data have recently infiltrated the systems of many organizations, including almost every major hotel company," she said.

According to the attorney general's office, the company last March received additional reports of a second security breach, an investigation showing a hacker got unauthorized access last November and installed credit card harvesting malware on 39 systems affecting five hotels, including Trump SoHo New York.

In April, the company added recommended precautions including authentication for remote access that requires username, password and then another piece of information only the user should know, such as a random number from a token.



Cincinnati Enquirer: 'Trump is a clear and present danger to our country'

The Enquirer has supported Republicans for president for almost a century – a tradition this editorial board doesn’t take lightly. But this is not a traditional race, and these are not traditional times. Our country needs calm, thoughtful leadership to deal with the challenges we face at home and abroad. We need a leader who will bring out the best in all Americans, not the worst.

That’s why there is only one choice when we elect a president in November: Hillary Clinton.


Trump is a clear and present danger to our country. He has no history of governance that should engender any confidence from voters. Trump has no foreign policy experience, and the fact that he doesn't recognize it – instead insisting that, "I know more about ISIS than the generals do" – is even more troubling. His wild threats to blow Iranian ships out of the water if they make rude gestures at U.S. ships is just the type of reckless, cowboy diplomacy Americans should fear from a Trump presidency. Clinton has been criticized for being overly cautious when it comes to sending our troops into battle, but there is a measured way to react to the world's problems. Do we really want someone in charge of our military and nuclear codes who has an impulse control problem? The fact that so many top military and national security officials are not supporting Trump speaks volumes.


McClatchy/Marist poll - Does the term racist describe.......

Trump 51%
Clinton 21%

Eugene Robinson askis why the NRA won't defend the right of African American men to carry guns

In America, gun rights are for whites only

.......I know many black men who have been pulled over for some trumped-up excuse and felt threatened by police.
This has happened to me.

In the Scott case, according to a Charlotte police department statement, officers said they went to a neighborhood looking for someone else and saw Scott “inside a vehicle in the apartment complex. The subject exited the vehicle armed with a handgun. Officers observed the subject get back into the vehicle at which time they began to approach the subject.”

If all they saw was a man with a gun who got out of a car and back in, what illegal activity did they observe? Why did they “approach the subject” instead of going about their business? Did they have any reason to suspect it was an illegal gun? Are all men carrying guns believed to be carrying guns illegally, or just black men?

Our gun laws should be changed. Until then, however, they must be enforced equally. Does the NRA disagree?


Trump expands his list of potential SCOTUS appointees. Mike Lee unmoved.


Brilliant Move: Mark Cuban gets front-row seat at debate

Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban has announced that he's accepted an invitation from Hillary Clinton's campaign to sit front-row at Monday night's first general election presidential debate with Republican rival Donald Trump.

In a tweet Friday night, Cuban referred to the debate, which will be held at Hofstra University in New York, as the “Humbling at Hofstra,” where he expects Clinton to "overwhelm" her opponent

Cuban is a billionaire supporter of the Democratic nominee and an outspoken critic of Trump, joining those who have repeatedly called for him to release his tax returns. Last week, he offered Trump $10 million for the opportunity to interview him.

Obama on Trump: 'Even most 8-year-olds' know slavery was a worse time for black people

(CNN)President Barack Obama sharply criticized Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump for saying earlier this week that the black community is in the worst shape its "ever been in before."

"I think even most 8-year-olds will tell you that whole slavery thing wasn't very good for black people," Obama told ABC News in an interview that aired Friday on "Good Morning America." "Jim Crow wasn't very good for black people. What we have to do is use our history to propel us to make even more progress in the future."


Key NJ Legislators Looking at Christie Impeachment: Sources

Key members of the New Jersey Assembly have begun researching whether or not to bring articles of impeachment against Gov. Chris Christie, NBC 4 New York has learned.

This follows early testimony in the George Washington Bridge scandal trial, which some Assembly members believe shows the Republican governor had more knowledge of the lane closures in Fort Lee during and after that week in 2013 then he has led the public to believe.

One committee chairman who did not want to be named said "clearly obstruction of justice" would be an obvious charge against the governor.

The legislator told NBC 4 New York the chances are probably 50-50 that the assembly would pursue impeachment.
