I recently wrote about how mediatrackers and Verify The Recall were working together to "out" people who signed the recall petition. The sole purpose of VTR was to intimidate and harass anyone who signed the petition. They have done a very good job of it even getting some media outlets to punish employees who have signed.
Now we get confirmation that their “outing” of community members and fellow citizens has worked exactly as planned. Madison morning news anchor Rob Starbuck was recently subjected to death threats. Police report here!
The anonymous male walker supporting caller made the threat that Starbuck should wear a bulletproof vest and better yet should wear it on his head because that was where he planned on shooting him. This is obvious code for I am a strong republican and I watch Fox News religiously! Fox News contributor and former Nixon Aide G.Gordon Liddy gave that advice out a few years ago (when speaking about the best way to kill federal agents).
Yes, VTR is working just like they planned it! Every time something like this happens the Founders of the VTR database should be held for questioning.
PS: It is finally time for Governor Walker to denounce these acts of violence in his name. He can be reached to be reminded Via twitter at @govwalker or Rebecca Kleefisch at @rebeccaforreal!
