In the early days of this scandal, I opined in a Corner post that it was believable this might be just a few low-level employees. I would like to state this is now obviously untenable. I also mentioned NOM’s experience — its legally protected Form 990s leaked, which has since hit Drudge and elsewhere.
For the record, this happened after I stepped down from NOM and I don’t have inside information about what happened. My theory that it was a former employee who requested the data is only a theory. We need someone with subpoena power to find out what really happened.
