The Democratic gubernatorial candidate from Camden addressed the anniversary in what the campaign calls an open letter to South Carolinians. It is being emailed Tuesday to thousands of supporters and posted online.
Haley announced Oct. 26, 2012, that a cyber-thief had stolen taxpayers' unencrypted personal information from the Department of Revenue. It was revealed over the coming weeks that 6.4 million people and businesses had been affected.
Sheheen points out Haley said for weeks that no one was to blame. She later acknowledged state officials did not do enough to prevent the theft.
