Democrat Deep Staters Started Posting GOP Senators Private Info Online During Kavanaugh Hearings

Several Republicans on the Senate judiciary Committee had their home phone numbers and other personal information posted on their Wikipedia pages in a plain effort to intimidate them into voting against judge Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation just as Wednesday’s hearings were being conducted.

Leftists used Wikipedia as a weapon to attack the Senators in an act called “doxing.” The victims included Mike Lee, Orrin G. Hatch, and Lindsey Graham.

“They appear to be targeting Republican members of the committee after they question Judge Kavanaugh,” a Hatch spokesman told The Daily Caller.

The edits were quickly reported by Congress-Edits, a group that monitors Wikipedia.

Staffers reported that the Senators’ families immediately began getting hundreds of harassing phone calls.

“This is outrageous,” tweeted White House spokesman Raj Shah. “Please stop.”

Daily Caller also reported that the computer system the edits were made from turned out to be inside the offices of the House of Representatives. Clearly it was another evil act of Democrats.

To ell the truth this is a perfect example of how useless and corrupt Wikipedia really is. The fact that just anyone can use the site maliciously proves that it is pretty unreliable.
