Bracing for a new wave of threats--posted by Tony Garcia on 9/13/2006
Three times this has happened. A wave of hits comes from http://www.hrccadmin.com/sound_and_the_fury.asp which seems to be a page within the membership protected area of the House Republican Volunteer Center. Then within a few days of those hits I get threats via e-mail, blogs and comments. These three were actually the 2nd, 3rd & 4th "isolated incidents" in this manner.
There was what turned out to be the first rash of hits where I thought nothing came of it. After spending a good deal of research from colleagues we discovered that coinciding with that first wave of hits was the beginning of a movement to attempt to destroy my livlihood and threats to my family in a similar manner. THAT did originate from GOP members and GOP employees.
As Jason Lewis frequently says, enough anecdotes lead to a reality.
So, I have begun getting a new wave of hits from the above mentioned link. I wonder what number of threats and harrassment I can expect in my personal life over the next few weeks.
