Today the Tennessean reports:
A password taped to a laptop stolen from the Davidson County Election Commission had been changed and could not be used to access voters’ Social Security numbers in the computer, a commission official said Tuesday ....The reports I saw on the laptops were based on Mr. Barrett's own comments that I heard him give to the Council committee nearly two weeks ago.
Barrett said that contrary to reports, a laptop left under a desk was inside a bag not visible to a thief and had an old password taped on top.
Let's hope that this is the final word on the facts about the passwords and that we other shoes don't drop in the future. It seems fantastic at this point.
