About the RNC List...
Federal prosecutors said in a subpoena that the information was needed as part of a criminal investigation into possible voter intimidation. But civil rights advocates argue that the Internet postings amount to political dissent, not threats or intimidation.
You will remember that the site featured two worrisome statements:
"The earth is not dying, it is being killed. And those that are killing it have names and addresses."
And this little admission:
Our objectives are to:* Supply anti-RNC groups with data on the delegates to use in whatever way they see fit.* Supply a body of information that can be easily added to.* Encourage the republishing and redistribution of this data.* Facilitate making local connections. Many of these delegates are involved in politics and business on a town or county level.
Given the amount of coordination between these outside groups and the DNC, this could get very interesting.
