The president's men trash the Constitution to pursue antagonists

The political fund that has raised more than $50 million to support Mitt Romney's bid for the presidency has been collecting money online with a system so insecure that it exposes donors' credit card information to even casual snoopers.
The failure to institute basic security violates industry standards, which could cause credit card companies to levy fees, fines and increased rates on a violator, potentially costing it hundreds of thousands of dollars, Ms. Kelley said.
"Quite frankly, the lack of credit card data protection on the site is unconscionable, and there is no excuse for it," said Diana Kelley, an analyst at the technology firm SecurityCurve, which reviewed the site. "They should stop taking card data until the problem is remediated and should notify their donors that their card numbers were at risk and may have been compromised."
