A parade-goer watching the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade on New York’s Upper West Side noticed that the confetti that fell on him and some friends contained what appeared to be confidential personal information about Nassau County Police Department employees, including names, addresses, Social Security numbers, bank routing numbers—even references to Mitt Romney’s motorcade during last month’s presidential debate at Hofstra University.
Ethan Finkelstein, a Tufts University freshman who was home on Thanksgiving break, showed WPIX-TV some of the confetti, which led to a police investigation.
“I’m just completely in shock,” Finkelstein said. “How could someone have this kind of information, and how could it be distributed at the Thanksgiving Day parade?”
