Worker for Minnesota ObamaCare 'exchange' releases private info in security breach

An employee at MNsure, Minnesota's new online health insurance exchange, accidentally distributed confidential information about more than 2,400 insurance agents. 

MNsure officials acknowledged mishandling private information. They said the employee sent an e-mail to the office of an Apple Valley insurance broker on Thursday afternoon that contained Social Security numbers, names, business addresses and other identifying information. 

The employee realized her mistake and immediately called the broker, Jim Koester. Then a MNsure security manager called to walk Koester and his assistant through the process of deleting the file from their computer hard drives. Koester told the Star Tribune he willingly complied but was unnerved by what happened. 

"The more I thought about it, the more troubled I was," he said. "What if this had fallen into the wrong hands? It's scary. If this is happening now, how can clients of MNsure be confident their data is safe?"

It most certainly will not be safe... if the TSA is any example of what minority hiring can do wait until ACORN is running all the 'Pilot' centers for Obama Care... nightmare, we hope that is all it becomes.  Total disaster most likely...

The answer to that question is they can't be sure.  Mistakes happen all the time, sometimes deliberately.

Please note:

They do not say who the third-world representative was who made the error.

They do not say: a.) If this is the only time this imployee has done this, or b.) Was or wasn't caught, or c.) what punishment she received.

There is an old saying that goes any question to which you already know the answer in NOT a question.  So to the statement ""What if this had fallen into the wrong hands? It's scary. If this is happening now, how can clients of MNsure be confident their data is safe?"  We already know the answer to this questing, but the real question is will we allow it to continue...

Again, it really is no question when we already know the answer... will it continue?  Yes and it will only get worse. 

Wait until Acorn and its affiliates become the primary contractor for 'Navigator' centers, the primary facilitators for those looking to navigate thru the mired details needed to access Obama Care... No one may get any care, after these 'navigators' end up scattering your paper work half way around the world. 

LMAO!!!

Laugh my a-- off!!!

It is time to get rid of social security numbers etc. The government just collects personal information to mis-use and control the people.

What a mess... you all know this stuff will eventually lead to mandatory ID cards, then to micro chips under the skin or tattoos required to buy or sell.

The beauracracy of obummercare in action.   Makes me feel safe.   LOL

 

God help us !

I have come to the conclusion there is no way to fix our broken government.  If you can't fix something, you discard it; throw it out; put it in the trash.

Everything about Obama is scary!

THIS ISN'T A TRAIN WRECK , IT'S A THOUSAND TRAIN WRECKS . DONT SIGN UP . GIVE BOGUS INFO IF YOU DO .
Wait until some idiots get into this like the Obama administration it also will. be a nightmare

It hasn't even started yet,,,and it has already had a security leak,,,,

ALERT ALERT

YIKES!!! Chelsea Clinton Emphatically States A Person With A Beard And A Penis Can ‘Absolutely’ Identify As A Woman

  • The one issue Hillary and Chelsea don’t appear to agree on entirely is transgender self-identification
  • In an interview with The Sunday Times, journalist Decca Aitkenhead asked the Clintons about transgender self-identification
  • Chelsea Clinton replied ‘yes’ emphatically when asked if someone with a beard and penis can ever be a woman
  • ‘It’s going to take a lot more time and effort to understand what it means to be defining yourself differently,’ Hillary said
  • Aitkenhead said Hillary became ‘uneasy’ when the question was asked while Chelsea shot a ‘furious stare’ at the journalist as her mother answered
  • Hillary added: ‘It’s a very big generational discussion, because this is not something I grew up with or ever saw’

(Daily Mail) – It may appear Hillary and Chelsea Clinton always see eye-to-eye, but in a recent interview one topic cracked the facade of the like-minded mother-daughter power duo.

The one issue Hillary and Chelsea don’t appear to agree on entirely is transgender self-identification.

In an interview with The Sunday Times, journalist Decca Aitkenhead asked the Clintons if someone with a beard and a penis can ever be a woman, to which Chelsea replied emphatically, ‘Yes.’

However, as Aitkenhead describes it, Hillary looked ‘uneasy’, and blamed generational gaps for being less accepting.

‘Errr. I’m just learning about this,’ Hillary responded. ‘It’s a very big generational discussion, because this is not something I grew up with or ever saw. It’s going to take a lot more time and effort to understand what it means to be defining yourself differently.’

The Clintons sat sown with Aitkenhead to promote the book they co-authored, The Book of Gutsy Women: Favorite Stories of Courage and Resilience.

The book features Danica Roem, the first trans woman elected to a U.S. state legislature.

According Aitkenhead’s account, she tells Hillary during the interview that many British feminists of Hillary’s generation have a problem with the idea that a ‘lesbian who doesn’t want to sleep with someone who has a penis is transphobic.’

Hillary nods in agreement, while Chelsea ‘stiffens and stares at me’, according to Aitkenhead.

The journalist then adds that many women of Hillary’s generation are uncomfortable with biological males sharing women’s bathrooms.

‘I would say that, absolutely,’ Hillary nods firmly. ‘Absolutely. Yes.’

That’s when Chelsea begins shooting a ‘furious stare’ at Aitkenhead, who points it out to her.

‘I’m a terrible actor’, Chelsea laughs.

Chelsea then says she is thrilled with the National Health Service’s decision to assign patients to single-sex wards according to the gender they identify as, instead of their biological make up.

‘How can you treat someone if you don’t recognize who they feel and know in their core they are?’ Chelsea says.

‘And I strongly support children being able to play on the sports teams that match their own gender identity,’ she adds. ‘I think we need to be doing everything we can to support kids in being whoever they know themselves to be and discovering who they are.’

At this point Hillary looks conflicted.

‘I think you’ve got to be sensitive to how difficult this is,’ Hillary says. ‘There are women who’d say [to a trans woman], ”You know what, you’ve never had the kind of life experiences that I’ve had. So I respect who you are, but don’t tell me you’re the same as me.” I hear that conversation all the time.’

Despite the clear tension in the room, the pair say they don’t argue about this topic.

But according to Aitkenhead, ‘I get the impression they don’t like to present anything less than a united front to the world.’
