Watch Your Email SEND List: Another Cautionary Tale

Posted by Alan Childress
This blog and Legal Ethics Forum have posted several examples of lawyer disasters stemming from sending emails to the wrong person or leaving metadata embedded.  Same can happen in politics.  The Colorado Independent today reports that the Colorado McCain campaign mistakenly sent their internal talking points to reporters (regarding the suspension of campaigning).  That story by itself is not that eventful, though a nice reminder.  The really great part is the honest reaction of the campaign email's author when asked for a comment: 

Told by a reporter that the e-mail had been sent to him and others in the media, Kise said, “F*ck, tell me I didn’t send it to the wrong list.”
