Yesterday Ann Althouse showed us a letter that she received that was an attempt to shame her into voting which produced a similar letter from one of her readers about using public info on political donations to shame , intimidate or silence voters .

Things are not sitting well with the progressives these days , considering the depths that they will sink to in order to try and win . I’ve followed politics for a long time and have never seen the likes of these tactics before . Reeks of desperation .

“A reader emailed me:

I got the same thing on donations about 2 weeks ago (see attached).  Ugh

A group of “researchers” using a Harvard University return address (108 Littauer Center – I checked and Harvard has that center.) is sending out campaign contribution information showing one Republican donor (me) and multiple (blinded) Democratic donors.  This reeks of intimidation tactics, i.e. “we have your name, etc and we will spotlight you”.  They claim this is information from “my neighborhood” – I know I live in a very Republican neighborhood so these names could be pulled from anywhere, e.g. the big UVA Democrat areas several miles from here.

Have others received similar notes?  They do it under the guise of “research” but the timing and tone seem very fishy if not illegal.  Is this research being funded by “stimulus” funds by the Federal Government?  I am sure there are other questions here.

I have not gone to their website for fear of tracking, etc.”
