Missouri Independent: Missouri governor vows criminal prosecution of reporter who found flaw in state website

I feel compelled to comment that I find this reprehensible, disgusting, and disqualifying. Missouri Independent: Missouri governor vows criminal prosecution of reporter who found flaw in state website. “On Tuesday, a reporter with the St. Louis Post-Dispatch alerted the state that Social Security numbers of school teachers and administrators were vulnerable to public exposure due to flaws on a website maintained by Missouri’s department of education. The newspaper agreed to hold off publishing any story while the department fixed the problem and protected the private information of teachers around the state. But by Thursday, Gov. Mike Parson was labeling the Post-Dispatch reporter a ‘hacker’ and vowing to seek criminal prosecution.”
