GOP Donors' Personal Data Disclosed in RNC Privacy Slip

BY RUSSELL BERMAN - Staff Reporter of the Sun
October 11, 2006


In a breach of privacy, the Republican National Committee erroneously e-mailed a list that contained the names, races, and Social Security numbers of dozens of top Republican donors and that identified two of the contributors as Muslim to this reporter.

In the course of preparing for a Washington fund-raiser on Friday headlined by President Bush, an RNC staffer, Dee Dee Lancaster, intended to e-mail a security list of confirmed guests to other event planners and the Secret Service. But Ms. Lancaster mistyped one of the addresses, and the e-mail wound up in the Gmail account of this reporter.

The RNC confirmed the slip-up, which raised questions about how the committee handles sensitive personal information and what records it keeps of its supporters.The e-mail was sent to four other addresses, including one with the Secret Service.

The attached spreadsheet of 76 guests included category headings with Social Security numbers, dates of birth, and "race." The race of all but three were listed as "Caucasian." One was identified as "Asian," and the race of two others, Malik and Seeme Hasan, was listed as "Muslim."

The classification drew criticism from Mrs. Hasan, who founded a group called Muslims for Bush and who, along with her husband, has donated hundreds of thousands of dollars to Republican committees and candidates in recent years.

"The only word I can think of is not very nice," Mrs. Hasan said yesterday in a telephone interview from her home in Colorado.

"I think that whoever wrote this obviously has no knowledge, because Muslim is not a race. It is a religion," she said.

11. so when they find the black freeper, they can exploit him
he can be everyone on FR's defense for saying anything racist.

He can be their "black friend".

As in, "I am not racist. I have a friend who is black"

19. Security
Sounds like the "Social number" and "race" were for background checks by the Secret Service since the President was headlining. I did get a good laugh out of the idiot secretary who thought "Muslim" was a race. Just goes to show how ignorant the majority of people are.

6. Reepers = Republicans. (Pass it on.)
Exactly three people on the list were not "white" according to the person who assembled the list. How they knew what race everyone was, I don't know. I do know that "Muslim" is not a race.

14. These are the same people who can't tell Sunnis from Shiites...
..because they all look the same.

Yes, I know they are religious differences...but apparently the Republicans can't tell the difference between 'religion' and 'race'.

What do they teach them in those Ivy League schools...
:eyes:

16. Why on earth would the RNC have SSN numbers?
:wtf: Sadly, I can see them categorizing people by "race" but why would an RNC donor provide a SSN # with a contribution? So the RNC has DOB and SSN's etc of their donors. Are they starting up an identity theft ring using their donors? :rofl:

So Mrs. Hasan is surprised that her "race" is characterized as Muslim by the racist party?

20. They need SSN because of a scene in the movie "Sudden Impact"
An asteroid was heading for the US but the government had an underground city prepared so that life can go on. They randomly selected people by SS numbers. It was a movie but this may be what they have in mind. Keep the repuke SS numbers in a data base in case they are needed for times like that.
