Iverifythe Recall (Scott Walker- WI) Being used for Political Retribution & Intimidation

"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."

Iverifythe recall.com is being used to target individuals for political retribution and intmidation. We need to get this story out there.

Not only does this site give names, but it gives home addresses as well! It may be public information, but this sit ehas been set up to use to target people.

We are being targeted for using our rights.

I've been targeted, school board members have been, judges have been, this is not going to stop.

Timeline:

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

Judges are being targeted

Here's the rightwing threat:

If they say it is wrong to use the public information where Scott Walker lives in tosa to hold a rally across from his house on the public sidewalk, then this form of political retributon by there own measure is wrong as well.

from 'targeting' people who supported Prop. 8 in California.

2. Gannett doesn't have 25 "journalists" on their entire staff.

3. McCarthyism

I'm old enough to remember when Sen. Joe McCarthy was accusing many of being a Communist. It was a pretty sad time in our history and I see this as being the same.
