Copy/Paste from her “Crowd Source the MF.odt” file (with some Reddit comment formatting):
FAQ’s to follow, later today. Like, no, I never had a terabyte of data and 750,000 files copied, here’s why:
I didn’t have a terabyte of storage handy, at the time, and…
Most of the 750,000 tally consists of duplicative material.
Dad made backups, and backups, and backups. On Disk 3, for example, were almost 100 backups of the same computer, made in relatively close succession. You get the gist…
The actual, external disks themselves contain the authenticated files (authenticated, as in, admissible as evidence in courts). Those remain in the posession of attorneys for the plaintiffs (of Common Cause v Lewis, and other cases in NY and MD) as the matter of THE Files is still open…
What you’re observing here, is my effort to crowd-source The Hofeller Files.
That means that I don’t, by myself, know exactly what We the People should do about our serious problem, the government of our country. All I can say, for certain, is that what we’re doing now does NOT seem to be working very well.
The files in this Google Drive were uploaded from my laptop, from a folder I named, “Backups for Gerrymander!”. When you open that folder, you find five sub-folders,
Disk #4 and
The extra folder, “emails” is a new creation, because on the drives themselves, those emails existed as very, very, very large .pst and .eml files. The backups were unwieldy in size, and difficult to upload.
Also, since the folks that have already had a look at this material have found all sorts of interesting stuff in the emails, and I wanted y’all to be able to see them, too. I also needed to be able to read everything before I published it (don’t ya think?). That’s one of the tasks that took so very long…
“But Steph”, you might say, “…there’s so much, super personal, stuff of YOURS in here…why?”
It’s because these backups were, in large part, backups of my parents’ home computer…from a decent number of years back. The desktop DID have a folder that I made, back in 2012 (or ‘11?) called “Steph’s Stuff”. I leave all of it in place for the same reason I sent everything to Arnold Porter, to preserve the forensic integrity of the material (not just for legal, but for historical purposes).
So, when it comes to myself, I have the right to sacrifice a certain amount of my own privacy. Also, our ringers of the GOP, when they finally figured out that Hofeller’s daughter (as in, “…my god, is that Hofeller’s daugher?!” actually had something that embarrassed them, they started a campaign to highlight my already public private life, and imply that my character or motivation was relevant to the authenticity of the files, themselves, ie, the evidence against them. It totally isn’t relevant.
I was not the party that brought my personal life into this matter, it was the GOP, trying to object to evidence on sole grounds that it was devastating to their case.
I also leave my shit here so that everyone can see the ridiculousness of the GOP’s assertion that these files belong to them. No, they belong to everybody, as they are evidence in matters that concern The People, their right to franchise and their access to shared resources.
And, if they belong to any one person, that person is me. So, here I go sharing again.
I’m going to be adding source materials, further information, research ideas and links to resources.
In the meantime, Mishka and I have been shut up in my apartment for a few days straight, now. So, I’m going to go for a ride, pick up some ciggies, and drop her off at home.
