• Hackers Breach Norm Coleman's Back End, Steal Donor Data

    normcolemanSay, did you contribute money to Norm Coleman's hilarious Senate campaign sketch? You did? Um, maybe you should think about canceling your credit card.

    No, seriously, cancel your credit card

    The U.S. Secret Service is investigating how personal details on thousands of campaign contributors to Norm Coleman, enmeshed in a court battle to win back his Senate seat, were dug out of his database and posted on the Internet. [...]

    [A spokesman] said the campaign doesn't know how someone obtained partial credit card numbers, card security codes and other data on more than 4,700 donors who gave as little as $1 and as much as the contribution limit of $4,600.

    Well, except the campaign does admit that its site was a little crashy for a while there, and maybe some databases that should've been secure were something less than secure, but who can tell with all this high-tech stuff? Norm Coleman is :( .

    Coleman and Franken have spent millions of dollars on legal fees since the recount and trial began. Coleman said publication of private information "seriously undermines" the campaign's fundraising efforts.

    You know what else seriously undermines his campaign's fundraising efforts?

    The fact that it's been going on for 8,492 months and he's still not winning.
