PA Legislator’s Laptop Stolen from Car

A Pennsylvania state representative had his state-issued laptop stolen from his car over the past weekend. But State Rep. Frank Dermody may not be particularly concerned because, according to the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, the legislator said no sensitive state data were on it.

Nothing “sensitive,” but an “undetermined number of e-mails from constituents” were on the stolen laptop? I wonder how his constituents feel about his lack of concern over their emails and any personal details they might have contained.

Dermody said that after the theft, he immediately contacted the legislature’s I.T. department, “which erased his password.” Horses and barn doors, anyone?
