Some Election Commission Laptops Have User Names and Passwords Attached to the Outside of Them!

The Metro Election Commission's Administrator Ray Barrett just told the Council's Public Safety Committee that some of the offices laptops have user names and passwords affixed to the outside surface of the laptops! He said he did not know whether the stolen laptops with full social security numbers had user names and passwords taped on. This is getting worse and worse the more we learn.

By the way, the Tennessean is reporting that the MEC does not have a formal policy for securing laptops. If that is the case, then the jobs of some Commissioners and Administrators ought to be in jeopardy.
