The US Postal Service has now stepped forward to take responsibility for an egregious breach not just of privacy but some of the most basic confidentiality rules in the US government. This is the case of Democrat Abigail Spanberger who is running against Rep. Dave Bratt in Virginia’s 7th congressional district. They released her whole government personnel file, including her SF-86 (the mega disclosure form Jared Kushner is still trying to figure out how to complete.) The Postal Service says the mistake was due to “human error”. Here’s the full story, along with Spanberger’s statement in which she notes the GOP oppo group the Post Office gave the documents to is still using it.
