I am facing an inconvenience with a person that I know because

Resolved Question:

I am facing an inconvenience with a person that I know because I disclosed some private information to him about what I saw during my participation as a member in a presidential voting table to select a candidate for president at my country( The Dominican Republic) which voting activity took place in the United States.

I informed my friend by email about all the fraud and illegal activities that happened during the voting process and I told him that his name was in the voter list. He got mad and surprised because according to him he never has provided any of his personal information to the political party where I participated.

He wants BADLY to contact the HISPANIC TV press to reveal the illegal process i confessed to him for the use of his name on the voter list without his consent; since I participated in the voting table for that party I told my friend not mention my name and not to show my email where i testified HIM the fraud that I saw but now he wants me to act together with him to report this incident through the press and he told me if I dont cooperate with him, he will report the incident and he will show my email to the press and will reaveal my name to the party i participated with..

my question is : is it legal that he reaveals my name and email that i provided him in the TVpress without my consent?

Yes, it is legal because you sent him the email and if you wanted to remain anonymous you should have sent him an anonymous note. However, since you actually witnessed this illegal activity he has a right to disclose your information to the authorities and to the press as well and I am afraid you would have no grounds to stop him.

ok.. in conclusion he can disclose my name in The TV PRESS without my permission?? is it legal do that without consignment?
Expert:  Law Educator, Esq. replied 6 years ago.
Yes, it is legal, you sent him the email, he owns the email that you sent to him and once you sent it you lost control over what he does with it.

ok, is it legal as well if he has recorded some our conversation when I am attesting the fraud?

Expert:  Law Educator, Esq. replied 6 years ago.
Yes, in NJ only consent of one party to a conversation is required to record the conversation and as he was a party to the conversation he could consent to recording it.
