Would it really be surprising to learn that Organizing for America's progressive Democrats may be better at vote fraud and stealing elections, as opposed to running information-based GOTV campaign? Probably not.
After all, these are the same people who aired Joe the Plumber
Wurzelbacher's information, put czars in charge of everything and want to get their hands on your health care records under ObamaCare. They may not be looking out for you, but rest assured, they will be looking at you if you oppose them. And since they can't even seem to protect the information of their friends, just imagine how they might handle yours
Ahead of the midterms, OFA, which was folded into the Democratic National Committee following Obama's election, has created an online "virtual" phone bank ostensibly for use by Democratic volunteers. As of Monday, the web page provided the names of Democrats who voted in 2008 but who aren't always regular voters, plus their phone numbers, ages, locations, and party affiliations. OFA also includes a script to use to encourage those voters to vote (and for the right candidates) on Election Day: "Will you help the president by committing to vote in your local elections in 2010, including the midterm elections on November 2nd?"
Anyone can access the information without so much as logging in.
And as it turns out, some conservative activists are doing just that. Entrepreneurial tea partiers have seized on the Democrats' GOTV tool to lobby for their own candidates, and sometimes just to annoy Democratic voters while posing as members of Obama's campaign machine.
