ABC 17 News has learned Social Security investigators did see personal information obtained from conceal and carry permit applicants’ driver’s licenses.
The recent outrage at the state capitol is over the fact that private information of people in Missouri made it all the way to Washington, DC.
Columbia Senator Kurt Schaefer said he’ll hold more hearings on the department of revenue’s use of that information.
U.S.representative Blaine Luetkemeyer told ABC 17 News he’ll have more information from Washington at a briefing Monday in Jefferson City.
“Apparently the disc that was sent in January was accessible by the Social Security Administration and upon them realizing they had the entire list of conceal and carry permit applications, they realized it was a lot more than they had requested,” said Luetkemeyer.
Senator Schaefer and house speaker Tim Jones have planned updates for Monday across the state as well.
