Two more GOP congressional candidates have been identified in a leak of military records to a Democratic-aligned research group less than a week after the House Judiciary Committee opened an investigation into the records’ disclosure.
Air Force Secretary Frank Kendall wrote a letter to House Armed Services Chairman Mike Rogers (R-AL) and Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer (R-KY) explaining that an audit discovered 11 people’s records were leaked in total, nine of them “without authority,” to Due Diligence Group between Jan. 1, 2021, and Jan. 3, 2023.
Of the 11 people, seven were candidates for Congress or elected to Congress, and all were leaked to Due Diligence. The two candidates’ names most recently released are Republican J.R. Majewski of Ohio and Republican Robert “Eli” Bremer of Colorado. The five others were already known: Reps. Don Bacon (R-NE) and Zach Nunn (R-IA), Kevin Dellicker, Jennifer-Ruth Green, and Samuel Peters.
“Department of the Air Force employees did not follow proper procedures requiring the member’s authorizing signature consenting to the release of information,” Air Force spokeswoman Ann Stefanek told the Washington Examiner.
“There was no evidence of political motivation or malicious intent on the part of any employee,” Stefanek said. “Through ongoing monthly audits, we are committed to preventing any such unauthorized disclosure of private information from occurring again.”
