The executive director for the Louisiana Republican Party said his email is a part of the Ashley Madison database because he used the cheating website for “opposition research” that “ended up being a waste of money and time,” according to a New Orleans newspaper.
Jason Doré told the Times-Picayune on Thursday via text message that his name and former personal credit card bill address were used to create an account. A massive database of personal information and data, which included federal employees and military personnel, from the dating website for cheating spouses was released Wednesday by hackers.
“As the state’s leading opposition research firm, our law office routinely searches public records, online databases and websites of all types to provide clients with comprehensive reports,” Doré told the newspaper via text message. “Our utilization of this site was for standard opposition research. Unfortunately, it ended up being a waste of money and time.”
The newspaper reported his account started in 2013 and spent $175.98.
