WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. lawmakers on Wednesday asked Neiman Marcus for information and documents related to the upscale retailer's recent cybersecurity breach that affected customer's data.

Democrats on the House Energy and Commerce Committee, in a letter to the company's chief executive, Karen Katz, said they are seeking more details so they can "fully understand ... how this theft of confidential customer information occurred" ahead of a February 3 hearing.

Again,,,, ask pretty please if the disinterested merchant will chrome the turd that is their lackluster protections for consumers. Meanwhile,,, some hapless fellow goes to jail for a parking ticket overlooked. What a wonderful world we live in where the greediest fear no repercussions and the working man can be beaten down.
