When news that a tape of California governor Arnold Schwarzenegger had been secretly leaked, we were suspicious of the argument that somehow hacking was involved; it seemed much more likely that the governor's office was trying to obfuscate the issue. When it was revealed that Schwarzenegger's gubernatorial opponent, Phil Angelides, was behind the leak, the Angelides campaign said that the file was available on a public server, and that no hacking was involved. Now, a California radio DJ is corroborating this, saying that the site's been public for some time. So maybe there is a scandal after all: the governor's office has poor security practices -- though that's been obvious from the beginning.
