Did they "export and download" as per DWS?

In a statement on the company's blog, NGP VAN CEO Stu Trevelyan apologized to the Clinton and Sanders campaigns and explained how the data was able to be viewed:

"On Wednesday morning, there was a release of VAN code. Unfortunately, it contained a bug. For a brief window, the voter data that is always searchable across campaigns in VoteBuilder included client scores it should not have, on a specific part of the VAN system. So for voters that a user already had access to, that user was able to search by and view (but not export or save or act on) some attributes that came from another campaign." some attributes that came from another campaign."

1. According to another article written by the software vendor

http://www.democraticunderground.com/1251913960
they printed and saved on summary report (maybe to disk)
"a one page-style report containing summary data on a list was saved out of VoteBuilder by one Sanders user. This is what some people have referred to as the “export” from VoteBuilder. As noted below, users were unable to export lists of people."


That's it. They could not download lists of voters, etc.

DWS cut Berrnie's campaign off for the sake of one summary report.

This nonsense should never have been in the media. It should have been shut down fast.

DWS is a certifiable idiot. Needs to go.
