johnsonav (1098915) writes "The AP reports, "An audit by the inspector general last year found the FBI demanded personal records without official authorization or otherwise collected more data than allowed in dozens of cases between 2003 and 2005." Testifying before the Senate Judiciary Committee, FBI Director Robert Mueller said the breaches occurred before the FBI enacted reforms in 2007 to prevent abuse. A previous audit by Justice Department Inspector General Glenn A. Fine, "blamed agent error and shoddy record-keeping for the bulk of the problems and did not find any indication of criminal misconduct." Far from unusual, more than 5% of requests are unauthorized, "In 2005, for example, Fine's office found more than 1,000 violations within 19,000 FBI requests to obtain 47,000 records.""
