Hillary Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta emailed his personal credit card info to his wife unencrypted, newly-leaked emails reveal.

The revelation is the latest embarrassing revelation from more than ten thousand emails from Podesta’s inbox released by the online hacktivist group Wikileaks.

Podesta’s daughter Mae emailed him in December, 2015, telling him they should make a charitable donation that day because it would receive a 20 percent match from another donor. To make the donation, she asked for Podesta to send over the family’s credit card information.

Podesta quickly replied, providing the American Express card’s number, expiration date, and security code, everything needed for somebody else to steal the information and make illicit purchases.

Emailing all of one’s credit card information without encryption is considered a major security blunder. It’s an even bigger one for Podesta, since political and government figures are routinely targeted by hackers.

Previously leaked emails have already exposed Podesta’s Social Security number.
