"The California attorney general's office is supremely incompetent at keeping the data confidential," Mr. Keating said. "I don't know that there's any evidence to suggest they are purposely trying to make it available for public viewing. But the fact is, they have put this data on their website and they haven't taken appropriate security measures so that people can't see it."
"Nothing like this has been done before," said David Keating, president of the Center for Competitive Politics, which opposes limits on campaign finance donations. "It will take a high level of discipline to do it."
