The House Judiciary Committee has compromised the identities of up to 150 Department of Justice employees, reports TPMMuckraker Friday.

By launching the "Write Congress to Right Justice" campaign back in June, the Committee sought to give employees an avenue to report politicization within the Department, without fear of retaliation, in the wake of the U.S. Attorney firing scandal. While anonymous tips were not allowed, confidentiality was assured to all who requested it.

In a mass Friday e-mail sent to all parties who submitted tips or complaints, the recipients' addresses were left visible, and the message was copied to the Vice President. An attempt at recalling the message revealed the addresses again.

TPMMuckraker has more.
