Potential Republican Presidential Candidate Jeb Bush, brother of George W. Bush, has done something really quite damaging. In the spirit of “transparency”, Bush thought it would be a good idea to essentially leak the social security numbers and other private details of thousands of people online. Obviously he didn’t think of it like that – the intention was to publish all of his e-mail communications for the sake of openness. But of course, that was a very bad idea.

Before Bush pulled the e-mails, some managed to download them, search through them, and they found some rather interesting things. Things that could be potentially damaging for quite a few people. Those details included Social Security numbers, but those are probably the least concerning details leaked. As The Verge points out, many e-mails were those from individuals asking Bush for help with personal issues, such as those concerning finances, legal trouble and the health of themselves and even their children.

So what initially seemed like quite a substantial gesture towards political transparency, has certainly backfired, and become a political nightmare.
