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.
