ChoicePoint & Katherine Harris

Remember ChoicePoint? It's that company that sold people's private information to a bunch of identity thieves. Well, there's more. They are also the company that sold a list of "felons" to Florida's Secretary of State's office (that would be Katherine Harris) in 2000. It turned out that many of the people on the list were not felons but they (mostly African-Americans) were prohibited from voting anyway.

But wait, there's more.

ChoicePoint, like Diebold, makes contributions to the Republican party! Who could have guessed?

So if your credit has been ruined because your identity was sold to a thief by ChoicePoint, you can thank the Bush, Inc.
