Individuals in at least three states have received literature from Democratic campaigns, organizations, or state parties warning that their voter records are public information. In one of those states, residents received documents that reveal if their immediate neighbors have voted in past elections.
Democratic candidate Scott Wallace, who is running against incumbent Republican representative Brian Fitzpatrick in Pennsylvania’s toss-up 1st Congressional District, is distributing door hangers in the area that oddly inform voters that “who you vote for is private, but whether or not you vote is public record” and adding that the campaign “can’t wait to see that you voted on November 6!”
Tony Evers, the Democratic candidate for governor in Wisconsin, is running on a renewable-energy environmental platform. But he has invested in the oil and gas sector, including in the company partly responsible for the Deepwater Horizon explosion and a petroleum distributor responsible for a pipe rupture that contaminated drinking water in the state he is now seeking to represent.
A document that was deleted from the website of a progressive group shows Democratic congressional candidate Katie Porter, who is running in California’s competitive 45th district against Republican representative Mimi Walters, would immediately back a far-left agenda and legislation if elected to Congress, including creating a commission to study reparations for slavery.
