Someone in Congress posted Republicans’ home addresses & phone numbers on Wikipedia

There is no limit to how low Democrats sink.

During yesterday’s Senate Judiciary Committee’s hearing on Judge Brett Kavanaugh and his accuser Christine Blasey Ford, someone(s) using a House of Representatives computer edited Wikipedia‘s article on the U.S. House of Representatives by posting the home addresses and phone numbers of Republican committee members.

Politico‘s congressional reporter Burgess Everett tweeted:

Someone is doxxing GOP senators on a computer from the House of Representatives, began shortly after the Graham speech. I’m not going to retweet the account where this is posted.

Victor Morton reports for The Washington Times that committee members who were doxxed included Lindsey Graham (R-SC), Mike Lee (R-Utah), and Orrin G. Hatch (R-Utah).

Independent Journal Review editor Caleb Hull said Mrs. Hatch has been receiving “nonstop” harassing calls nonstop on her birthday, and that their home address was made public.

The doxxing came from an IP address associated with the U.S. Congress. We know this from CongressEdits, an automated TwitterTwitter account (@congressedits) created in May 2014 which tweets changes to Wikipedia articles originating from IP addresses assigned to Congress.

White House principal deputy press secretary Raj Shah tweeted:“This is outrageous. Please stop.”
