Scott Walker Supporter Identifies Petition Signers From TV Clip; Harasses Them by Phone
http://www.dailykos.com/story/2011/12/09/1043864/-Scott... ;-Harasses-Them-by-Phone

From Daily Kos:
Some organizers of the recall against Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker are a little hesitant to highlight stories like the one that follows, because they worry it might discourage people from volunteering or from signing recall petitions. I disagree. I think it strengthens the resolve of volunteers and exposes the desperation of Scott Walker's supporters.

In what might be the creepiest attempt yet by one of Walker's supporters to intimidate recall petition signers, WKOW TV in Madison reported tonight that a man used brief video clips of signed petitions from a previous newscast to identify signers. The man, from Hartland, Wisconsin in Waukesha County, then called some of those petition signers at home by telephone to harass them.

I cannot get their video to embed, but here is the link. If you can take a couple minutes to watch it, please do. It includes an interview with the creep from Hartland and will give you a good sense of how unhinged the Walker supporters have become.

4. The unhinged are the foot soldiers. I witnessed some of their unlawful acts during the '88 campaign
and the local police stood and observed.
