Jeb Bush just revealed the social security numbers of a bunch of former constituents

Dear "eGovernor" Bush,
Privacy protection is an important part of the job. Who is your security officer? You have a security officer, right?

In a ham-handed effort at transparency, the likely 2016 Republican presidential candidate Jeb Bush just released a trove of emailsfrom his time as Florida's governor—but the emails included confidential messages, personal information and even social security numbers from thousands of people. What was he thinking?

The un-redacted email dump was first identified by the Verge, which found emails that, among other things, discussed the firings of public employees. In some emails, petitioners sent their social security numbers to Bush, who was famously responsive to email inquiries from his constituents.
