Our Political System Must Safeguard Voter Privacy


Trevor Potter, president of CLC, and a former Republican chairman of the Federal Election Commission, released the following statement about Cockrum v. Trump:

“The hack and release of sensitive personal information of donors and campaign staff is potentially damaging to all those who seek to be involved in the political process, regardless of political affiliation. Our political system must safeguard against intimidation and the breach of privacy, so the stakes of this case for the future of our democracy are very high.”
