Jeb Bush's transparency effort released unredacted emails

In an effort at transparency about his administration and to improve his chance of becoming our future president, Jeb Bush [really his team] released emails from his tenure as Governor of Florida (1999-2007) on Tues. On Weds his campaign team closed access to the information after it was discovered that at least some the hundreds of thousands of emails contained personal data, including contact info, social security numbers and some health information, none of which was apparently reviewed to see if anything should be redacted or closed for various reasons before it was made public. I'm really surprised that nobody remotely considered doing this. Clearly they need an information specialist on their politically minded team. And they should have consulted with the State Archivist of Florida. These are government records he released. I'm sure they have records schedules about electronic/digital information down there.
