A.C. Thompson at the SF Weekly reports that we have our own phone surveillance scandal in the San Francisco Police Department. link. Thompson reports that, in an effort to whitewash the infamous Fajitagate incident, key players within the police department gathered phone records between cops and journalists covering the Hall of Justice, in order to determine who leaked an internal memo describing Officer Alex Fagan Jr., the Fajitagate perpetrator and son of the number two man in the department, as having anger management problems.

Has there been any follow up to this story?

For more on leaking secrets, here’s one of my Wired News columns on the topic.
