There’s a very troubling report on MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow show that a Political Action Committee(PAC) alligned with House Speaker Paul Ryan is knowingly using illegally obtained information to attack a Dem congressional hopeful Abigail Spanberger.
According to Maddow, Speaker Ryan’s PAC is using very personal information illegally obtained from Abigail Spanberger’s SF-86 form. The Trump admin maintains Abigail’s info was erroneously released to the PAC following their FOIA request.
However this is where it gets interesting. Turns out that Speaker Ryan’s PAC got Abigail’s documents only 3 weeks after submitting their FOIA request. Abigail Spanberger’s campaign also filed a FOIA request to the same agency but interestingly, its still pending several months after it was filed. This calls into question Trump Admin’s stance that Abigail’s info was released “erroneously”. As Maddow correctly points out this appears to be the new GOP shady campaign tactic–doxxing Dem candidates who have filed SF-86 forms.
Bottom line this is out and out criminal conduct for which Dems and the mainstream media must call out Speaker Ryan and his PAC. Its also further proof that the GOP has indeed become a criminal enterprise as Yours Truly recently stated.
For those of you very happy with @Emolclause’s activism don’t shy away from the “tip jar” below on your way out
