The Washington Post reports that the White House released 112 pages of emails from voters commenting on the Election Integrity Commission without any redaction of personal information. Published emails not only displayed voter names and email addresses but, in some instances, also included other identifying information, such as home addresses, phone numbers and places of employment. While comments on proposed legislation are common practice, it often includes guidelines on how to submit comments, display personal information and how the data may be used. The report states that "the White House does not appear to have issued any such public guidelines or warnings before many of the emails were sent."
