Jeb Email Dump Violates Floridians Privacy
[su_center_ad]In an attempt to make Jeb Bush look transparent by releasing years of emails, personal information on senders was also revealed.
We do not know yet if any of these email disclosures violate Florida privacy laws — as Bush notes in the signature of many of his emails, “Florida has a very broad public records law,” and “your email communications may therefore be subject to public disclosure.” However, Florida’s sunshine law provides exceptions that may have prohibited disclosure of social security numbers…
Time reporter Zeke Miller, reporting from a Q&A with Jeb Bush, reported on Twitter that Bush is now aware of the personal information in the email dump, and that it will be removed. Miller reports that Bush’s PAC posted only what is already in the public record, echoing the statement given by Bush’s spokesperson to BuzzFeed News. We’re not sure how long that will take, or if Bush’s PAC will take down the emails temporarily in the meantime (it will presumably take a while to scan through hundreds of thousands of emails), but we’ll keep you updated.
