California Governor's Race: Angelides Campaign Admits Downloading Governor's Racism. Governor's Office Admits It Wasn't in Password Protected Area

There is an AP update on the California Macaca case at San Jose Mercury News

I've given a summary below:

After trying to pin a Watergate style break-in on the Phil Angelides campaign, the Schwarzenegger group had to settle for saying, well (so it wasn't password protected and was in the same area as an audio we did want released to the public) they still had to look around for it. There is still one governor's campaign person who claims it was password protected, but we can expect that to disappear with time as nothing pans out.

The Governor's campaign says downloading the audio was unethical even if the area was available to the public.

Yeah, like someone's going to put in on their IPOD.

The Governor's office released the IP number to the Sacramento Bee which looked it up. (Okay, why is the Sac Bee doing a job for the Schwarzenegger campaign?) The Democrats say the release of the IP number violates the privacy policy of the governor's site about not revealing to outside sources any information collected electronically from visitors.

The Sacramento Bee isn't the CHP or the FBI so they can't use law enforcement argument.

And that makes a point. Can't anyone at the Governor's office run an IP check?

Ha ha ha ha!
