"One of DePerno's first acts of office was to pull the data from the Internet because it contained as many as 20,000 Social Security numbers and a handful of bank account numbers."Last week we were told by former OC Clerk Rick Allen:
""There were not very many. It was rare," he said of the records containing the Social Security numbers."Can both statements be correct -- because they sound contradictory? We know where Rick Allen's statement came from -- but it needs to be clarified. We don't know where the "20,000" number comes from.
Somehow I'm getting the impression that the public is being manipulated into accepting keeping public records off line.
