SEE HERE Well a Tea Party leader sent the following email to Oklahoma State Senator Cliff Branan:
“I will make you the laughing stock of the Senate if I don’t hear that this bill will be heard and passed,” the email continued. “We will dig into your past, your family, your associates, and once we start on you there will be no end to it.”
This got the author charged with felony blackmail and computer crimes because poor old Cliff Branan felt threatened. Ooooo.... Interesting thing to me is that this is a standard Democrat liberal tactic which most of my Conservative friends call demonization. Apparently it works wonders on Republicans like Branan who feel threatened by the idea that someone would check up on them and publish what they find. Sounds like standard political speech. I think Branan needs to develop a thicker skin. That's probably the problem we have with Republicans ... they often have the right ideas but they tend to be gutless wonders.
