Targeting the Mil Cty DIstrict Attorney
http://www.jsonline.com/blogs/news/146719805.html
" Media Trackers, which digs up dirt on Democrats and liberals, put out a release Monday identifying 43 people in Chisholm's office who signed the Walker petition. Of those, it said one was a deputy district attorney and 19 were assistant district attorneys. "
Note: this is the same orginzation who made the original threat to those who signed the recall.

School board again:
- http://www.belling.com/
"Sussex School Board Member Spelled Name Wrong Last Year AND This Year On Separate Recall Petitions!!

Belling was more or less advertising that you could get a persons address and then target them. He said that it was a more or less a guidebook to find liberals in Wisconsin and go after them for signing the recall.


Judges are being targeted:

"APPLETON, Wis. (AP) -- The publisher of The Post-Crescent of Appleton has written an open letter to readers apologizing for 25 Gannett Wisconsin Media journalists who signed petitions calling for the ouster of Republican Governor Scott Walker."


I a lowly blogger have been targeted;

Iverifytherecall.com is being used to target individuals for political retribution and intimidation.

The question is not that it is public information, but how that information is used.

The website uses signature identification software, you can put in a person's name or scan a zip code. Not only does it reveal your name or names of your family, it will also give out your address.

The types of retribution could be mild which is happening to me by aggressive posters on my blog, they mentioned my wife's name and what city we live in in a clear attempt at intimidation, to the Witch-hunts against public officials and journalists, people getting fired from their jobs, to what I fear next is they will be attacking the homes and property of recall signers.

1. This is what democracy looks like

when it is legally exercised by honorable citizens against the thugs and useful idiots of the 1%.
