The White House Just Published People's Personal Data Online

That's in no small part because the order came after Trump alleged without evidence that as many as 5 million people voted illegally in his 2016 election victory against Hillary Clinton.

The Secretary of State was supposed to send the voter commission the data Friday, but that's been put on hold after a series of lawsuits were filed. Some include personal addresses, small business contact data, or phone numbers.

In a spectacular you-can't-make-this-stuff-up moment, the administration of US President Donald Trump, after seeking online voter input on how to manage voter privacy, made public on Thursday the very information that respondents clearly requested stay hidden, angering, well, everyone.

The former couple paid a surprise visit to students at Ryan International School, Vasant Kunj as part of the film's promotions. The film has earned rave reviews from critics for its innovative storytelling style and the performances by Ranbir Kapoor .

"You will open up the entire voting population to a massive amount of fraud if this data is in any way released", wrote one voter. "The federal government is attempting to get the name, address, birth date, political party, and social security number of every voter in the country".

"I respectfully request, as an American-born citizen legally eligible to vote for two decades, that you leave my voter data and history alone, do not publish it, and do nothing with it", said another.

Many officials and watchdogs have expressed disbelief and outrage at the request - some info is confidential or sensitive, they say - and the public comment request from the commission ahead of its first meeting next week was a chance for voters to weigh in. And yet, lacking a complete understanding of the depth and breadth of Russian interference in the 2016 election and its implications for future elections, the commission has ignored this issue of fundamental importance to our Democracy and instead is focusing its efforts on creating a national voter registry. Why? It would be a much better use of taxpayer money to find answers to actual problems that election administration officials face, including consistent underfunding of elections, increased security demands, and creating as much opportunity as possible for every eligible voter to cast a ballot in every election.
