"What IT should do to fight corruption in Washington DC?"
That should be the question all of us ask, not just IT and not just in Washington DC. Whether Hillary broke the law or violated any number of technology policies is certainly up for debate. I do know that if I did the same thing, not only would I lose my job, but I'd face possible prosecution in several jurisdictions. It saddens me that some would pass this off as shrewd instead of calling it out as deplorable behavior from a government official who should know better.
The same could be said of the other examples cited in the slideshow. However, in the case of the Sarah Palin hack, that was definitely illegal behavior at the federal and state level in most states. In the case of Jeb Bush, releasing protected PII is also illegal. Neither side of the aisle has the monopoly on ethics and transparency.
