Florida congresswoman and former head of the DNC, Debbie Wasserman Schultz has finally admitted she violated information security policy, but rather than being an adult and taking responsibility for her own actions, she, like her sister in arms, Hillary, is passing the buck to the House’s chief administration officer.
Wasserman Schultz is basically saying, “yes, I did something wrong, but it’s your fault for not stopping me from doing it.”
Personal responsibility is just not a character trait that seems to exist among left-wing politicians.
The Daily Caller is reporting, In a May 17 appropriations hearing on Congress’ administrative budget, Wasserman Shultz said she had violated the policies “for years and years and years.” She also sought to find out how much House authorities might know about her internet usage, asking “Are members monitored?”
Police are investigating Wasserman Schultz’s longtime information technology (IT) aide Imran Awan for theft and funneling congressional data from members of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, Committee on Homeland Security and Committee on Foreign Affairs.
Yet Wasserman Schultz lashed out at investigators and changed Awan’s title to “adviser” instead of firing him after House authorities banned him from the network. She resigned as Democratic National Committee (DNC) Chairman in July 2016 after unidentified hackers accessed the DNC’s emails, which Wikileaks later published.
Wasserman Schultz then blamed House authorities for not stopping her and questioned their commitment to cybersecurity.
“I am more than happy to admit that I use Dropbox. I have used it for years and years and years. It is not blocked. I am fully able to use it,” she said.
“So there is a vulnerability in our network in spite of the fact that you say that you’ve taken steps to address it,” she continued. “And there is not enough of a — of a policy that — that applies across the board. And you need to make sure that you tighten up your rules and policies so that you can really take and assure us that you take seriously protecting our network.”
This is like a murderer blaming the victim for not stopping him and using that excuse as a defense against going to prison.
It’s truly that absurd.
But then this is Debbie Wasserman Schultz we’re talking about.
