My sister and I decided that whatever penalty the administration (low level) will pay, it will all be worthwhile because they got what they wanted. The names and addresses of all donors and the names and addresses of volunteers and staff and close family members was their end game.
Kind of spooky.
Yep, remember this illegal tactic by Linda Douglass in the White Hut with their health care propaganda push:
"There is a lot of disinformation about health insurance reform out there, spanning from control of personal finances to end of life care. These rumors often travel just below the surface via chain emails or through casual conversation. Since we cant keep track of all of them here at the White House, were asking for your help. If you get an email or see something on the web about health insurance reform that seems fishy, send it to firstname.lastname@example.org."
