 After l’affaire Spitzer, readers in comments have repeatedly noted that Schneiderman had better be squeaky clean since he would be targeted by private investigators, as Spitzer clearly was. This Post “story” looks to have been the result of private investigators going after Schneiderman’s staff, with the intent of intimidating them and embarrassing and discrediting him. This report is even less specific than the one the Post filed on the maid who accused Dominique Strauss-Kahn of rape and clearly came from private investigators in the employ of DSK. And those sensationalistic charges, that she was a hooker, that the union had placed her in the hotel and had some sort of profit sharing arrangement, that she was turning tricks while under protective custody, all appear to have been fabrications (they initially sounded plausible because they were detailed, but the maid is suing the Post for defamation, and a source has indicated that there is no evidence that she was a prostitute).

The plugin, which came out of beta today, works with a list of sites that support HTTPS, but may be doing so in an incomplete or limited fashion. If a site defaults to unencrypted HTTP or links to unencrypted pages, the plugin will rewriting requests so that true HTTPS is utilized. It currently works with a number of big sites, including Google Search, Wikipedia, Twitter, Facebook, bit.ly, PayPal and all Wordpress.com blogs.
