California: Angelides Campaign Staffer Downloaded Governor's Comments

Tom Chorneau and Lynda Gledhill write in The San Francisco Chronicle:

The manager of Democrat Phil Angelides' gubernatorial campaign acknowledged Tuesday that two staff members downloaded a controversial audio file containing private comments of Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger and leaked it to the media.

Cathy Calfo, Angeldies' campaign manager, said however, that the campaign did nothing improper and insisted that the file was left available on a public Web site.

"There was no hacking, no password, no expertise required," she told a news conference.

The California Highway Patrol has opened an investigation into whether the file was obtained illegally. Calfo said no one at the campaign had been contacted by the CHP.
