Used BlackBerrys Sold by McCain-Palin Campaign; Private Data Included

Per engadget, last week Fox 5 associates in Washington, D.C. picked up some Blackberrys for $20 apiece at the campaign's yard sale. When they fired the devices up, one still contained "50 contacts for 'campaign leaders, politicians, lobbyists and journalists' as well as hundreds of emails. A campaign spokesperson commented, 'procedures are being put in place to ensure all information is secure,' [and] followed minutes later [with] a blank email cc'd to his entire address book with the subject line 'We're so screwed.'"

(Thanks, Ben!)
