Vincent Sheheen Calls Data Hack News Delay Unacceptable
Columbia, SC – State Senator Vincent Sheheen today called Governor Nikki Haley’s decision to delay informing the public of the massive identity theft from the state’s Department of Revenue unacceptable.
“State leaders have a responsibility to inform the public of news like this in a timely manner. Whether its good news or bad news, like this, the public deserves to know.”
“I often refrain from criticizing the administration, but enough is enough.”
“For Governor Haley and her administration to withhold news from us for sixteen days that our personal identity information has been stolen from state computers is completely unacceptable. And to wait until a Friday afternoon to release this information is nothing more than a slick public relations trick trying to minimize political damage. “
