The Democratic National Committee has egg on its face and a damaged reputation. Hackers (from Russia?) exposed 20,000 of its emails just in time to show the Committee was not neutral in the Presidential primary campaign and was actively supporting Hillary Clinton over Bernie Sanders. The stupidity of the incident is that the DNC knew its security systems were inadequate. They were told months before by consultants that they were vulnerable. The DNC did little about it. So, today it faces a make-over with its chairman having resigned and others with their jobs in jeopardy. How could they have thought they were safe when companies and governments around the world are infiltrated by hackers? It is the height of irresponsibility. Anyone with any prominence on the national scene should be concerned about maintaining security. The DNC is an object lesson for those who aren't worried.
