Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-Calif.) sued [Rep. Mo] Brooks [(R) AL], along with former president Donald Trump and others, for the damage caused by the insurrection. But Brooks, unlike the other defendants, refused to accept service of the court papers — prompting Swalwell to hire a private investigator to hunt him down. A weeks-long cat-and-mouse game ensued, and Brooks proved so elusive that the judge granted his pursuers a 60-day extension.
Brooks tweeted the photo, of his computer screen, in such haste that he evidently didn’t notice it included what appeared to be a PIN and his Gmail password taped to his monitor. Apparently, taking a screenshot exceeded Brooks’s technical capabilities.
Rep. Ted Lieu (D-Calif.) helpfully tweeted advice to his colleague: “Never tape PW to computer.”
Could it be any more embarrassing for Congressman Luddite? Well, consider that he is a member of the House Armed Services Subcommittee on Cyber, Innovative Technologies and Information Systems.
