Ex-Democratic staffer charged with posting senators' private info

Source: Politico

The U.S. Capitol Police on Wednesday arrested a 27-year-old man for posting addresses and private information of senators, according to the police department.

The department reported that it arrested Jackson A. Cosko for allegedly posting "private, identifying information (doxing) about one or more United States senators to the Internet." Cosko has been working as an intern in the office of Democratic Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee of Texas and has been fired, according to her chief of staff Glenn Rushing.

“We're just cooperating with law enforcement right now,” Rushing said in an interview.

Cosko graduated from George Washington University in 2014 and previously worked for Democratic Sens. Maggie Hassan of New Hampshire and California’s Barbara Boxer, who has since retired. Cosko most recently worked for Hassan as a "legislative correspondent/systems administrator," according to Legistorm.

1. Speechless

I always wonder what gets into people's heads, and how they thought their actions would turn out well?

Obviously he's a damn fool.

3. Unacceptable.

It's also very unhelpful, gives Republicans ammunition (not to mention that it should not have happened). You have to wonder.

13. Right, Retrumplicans and Donnie Fungus Dick

would sing his praises if he were a retrumplican and tell us that everyone does it, so no big deal.

I'm getting tired of being the only party that is expected to play by some kind of set of rules that the other side ignores on a daily basis.

5. "witness tampering, threats in interstate communications, unauthorized access of a government

computer, identity theft, second-degree burglary and unlawful entry."

Someone "threw the book" at him.

10. We don't need right wing-types on our side.

This is the kind of scumbaggery that Trump Party-types engage in. Unacceptable.
