Republican Threatens Liberal Donors

A Republican with deep pockets has mailed 11,000 letters to liberal contributors with a very clear threat:  continue giving money to liberal interest groups and he’ll out you in your local community and, perhaps, insure you face criminal charges.

Vote suppression doesn’t get any uglier than this folks.  Ben Smith broke the story at Politico:

Your name has been put in our database. We are monitoring all reports of a wide variety of leftist organizations. As your name appears in subsequent reports, it is our intent to publicize your involvement in your local community. Should any of these organizations be found to be engaged in illegal or questionable activity, it is our intent to publicize your involvement with those activities. You should know that instances of coordinated voter fraud are surfacing all across America and investigations into possible criminal coordination are underway.

The letter was signed by Howard Rich on behalf of Americans For Limited Government.

Note:  this is unacceptable from either side of the ideological divide.

One thought on “Republican Threatens Liberal Donors”

  1. I looked at their site and read some of their stuff.  

    They are utterly 100% certifiably bat-shite!  nutjobs.  

    I am sorry but they sound like an emerging incarnation of the Nazi party not some group that is concerned about America or American principles.  

    I have put them in my database of groups to keep an eye on and confront firmly should they feel the need to cross my path.  

    It would interesting if it could be legitimately linked to anyone in the GOP “tent” with people in this group that are clearly linked to McCain.  If it can’t then, they are just some malcontent rabid politico group who would rather wipe their arse on the flag and America so that they can run a vendetta against some groups they don’t like.  

    Sick idiots like these I give no measure of respect or shred of credibility in the name of trying to effect reform.  Draconian tactics are a page right out of mob-like business tactics and the Gestapo-like keeping of names for the purpose of trumping up future bad publicity and bad press and in the extreme criminal prosecution.  They want to be the next incarnation of McCarthyism.  They should look to the past and learn why that kind of nonsense is no long tolerated from either side of the major political spectrum.
