Another Bad Idea

From "Tea partiers told to 'drop by' Tom Perriello's home" by Andy Barr (Politico 3/22):

A tea party organizer angry over Rep. Thomas Perriello’s (D-Va.) vote in favor of health care reform published what he thought was the freshman member’s home address on a blog, in case any readers “want to drop by” and provide a “personal touch” to their views.

Rather than giving out Perriello’s address however, the tea party activist mistakenly printed the home address of the congressman’s brother. Perriello’s brother and wife have four children under the age of 8.

This is dangerous and a primary reason we sometimes have trouble finding people to run for office. Cut it out!
