Per the Valley News Live story above, a woman in Fargo is feeling a little intimidated after a Democrat-aligned group mailed her voting history to her. She’s all the more upset because her neighbors got the information as well.
“We’re sending this mailing to you and your neighbors to publicize who does and doesn’t vote,” the letter from the group, America Votes, reads.
“I was pretty mad and felt they went a little to far. I wasn’t sure if my rights or privacy right had been violated,” Jessica Jahner told VNL.
This isn’t a new tactic, and yes this sort of information is public record, but you have to wonder if it’s an effective strategy to try and shame or intimidate voters this way.
America Votes is a very left-wing organization founded by, among others, a top union organizer and an abortion advocate.
“America Votes was created prior to the 2004 election by Ellen Malcolm, the founder of EMILY’s List; former Sierra Club executive director Carl Pope; Harold Ickes; Steve Rosenthal; and Andy Stern, the former president of Service Employees International Union (SEIU),” Wikipedia states.
