A lot of things went wrong for Hillary Clinton along the way to her election loss, but a new report says that a typo may have been one of them.  According to The Huffington Post,

New York Times story on the Russian hacking of the Democratic National Committee and Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta says that a Clinton campaign IT employee’s typo-ed email could be why the hackers were able to get Podesta’s emails, which were released daily in October by WikiLeaks. The IT worker, Charles Delavan, was responding to a Google alert that had been sent to Podesta’s Gmail account in March saying someone had tried to get into his email and prompting him to change his password. An aide had fowarded it to Delavan, who knew it was a fake phishing email from hackers. Delavan responded to the aide, saying that Podesta needed to change his password immediately and have two-factor authentication, but also wrote back: “This is a legitimate email.” Somebody then clicked on the link in the fake email, entered Podesta’s password, and he was hacked. But Delavan said he made a typo, with the Times explaining: “He knew this was a phishing attack, as the campaign was getting dozens of them. He said he meant to type that it was an ‘illegitimate’ email, an error that he said has plagued him ever since.”

Wow.  It’s like one thing after another is coming out about this past election.  SMH
