You would think they would know that Email is public

Debby Wasserman Schultz and most of the top brass at DNC are dumb enough to put things in email that they would never want to become public.  They are too ignorant to know that email ain't private, ain't secure, any thing you put in email can turn up on Wikileaks, or the front page of the newspapers.  This has been clear since Ollie North tried to erase his incriminating emails on the Iran Contra affair back in the Reagan administration.  In Ollie's case, he deleted his emails all right, but efficient IT people at the While House had backed them up on mag tape, and produced them at the Congressional hearings.  Bye bye Ollie. 
   I knew this soon as we got email at work, 30 odd years ago.   Use email for stuff everyone wants to see, such as how to fix a circuit board, how to design with our company's parts, how good our product is.  Don't email gripes, bugs, opinions of customers, anything uncomplimentary to anyone. 
   Talk face to face, out of doors or in a secure location, or use a payphone, or a cell phone from a moving car, when you are talking about bad or sensitive stuff.  Never by email.  Cause email ain't secure.
   Debbie and company should have known this.  She is stepping down, which will help the Democratic party.  The Democrats will do better when they don't have a chuckle head running it.

Feeling the Bern. DNC cuts Sanders campaign off from "data base"

The present kefuffle over the Sanders campaign is obscure.  WashPost claims that a single software vendor selected by the DNC, maintains a data base for the party AND all the candidates.  Sander's campaign is accused of accessing thru the database, information (type unspecified) that belonged to Hillary's campaign, not the Sanders campaign.
  Weird.  On our side, the RNC maintains "Voter Vault" a list of registered republican voters and makes it available to any Republican candidate or committee.  Voter Vault is built up from town voter registration lists, which are public records available to all.  When phone banking, a good phone list, where the phone numbers actually answer, and are answered by Republicans, as opposed to by Democrats, is the breath of life.  Over the years, the Republican Voter Vault has been pretty good in that respect.  When I am phone banking, the Voter Vault phone numbers have been good. 
   But Voter Vault is available to all Republicans.  It just has names phone numbers, and how many years each name has registered Republican.  Which is all you need or want for phone banking.  Nothing that belongs to a candidate.  The names come from town voter registration lists.  I don't know where the phone numbers come from.  I don't remember giving my phone number in order to register to vote.  But nothing in Voter Vault would kick off the current rumble in the democratic jungle. 
   Unless of course, it is a straight forward "Dump Bernie" maneuver by the DNC.
