McCain Team Sells Second Hand, Unwiped Blackberrys

In one of the striking instance of negligence, members of John McCain’s now-inoperative presidential campaign have been found selling off technical assets, including laptops and mobile handsets, used during the campaign without wiping out the content stored on the devices.

A Fox 5 News reporter had managed to purchase two Blackberry handsets in a “gone out of business sale” for as low as $20 per piece, with the devices reportedly contained some crucial contact details of key donors, lobbyists, and major advisors related with the campaign.

One of the handsets purchased by the reporter has had around 50 mobile phone numbers of people linked with the campaign, including mobile number of an ex Virginia governor, with a large number of emails spanned from the month of September until a couple of days after the presidential election.
