Post Campaign Fiascos

I am reminded of the not so long ago fiasco involving a presidential candidate who, after the elections, naturally folded his headquarters. His people started disposing the office furniture and equipment but failed to sanitize the cell phones and computer memory. As a result, the buyers who checked their newly bought 2nd hand equipment were treated to a number of confidential communications. It seems that some sensitive text messages were left in the phones and the new owners had fun reading it. I wonder what else they found in there.

Daniel Smith's accuser is reported to have executed a sworn statement virtually clearing the GI of the charges that she, not so long ago, filed against him.

Weeds are routinely uprooted and all plants are monitored to make sure that they grow in the proper direction with none of them ever posing as a hindrance to another. That is how delicate the process is.

He went down to ground zero and recognized the importance of rank and file and inspired everybody else to think of something to make sure that the company will have enough to pay everybody.

Here's the story.
