It looks like Maxine Waters’ office apparently tried to get violent against Republican Senators.  As Republicans held a hearing on the sexual assault allegations of Dr. Ford against Supreme Court nominee Brett M. Kavanaugh, someone uploaded the personal information of GOP senators on Wikipedia — plain for the world to see.

This included phone numbers and home addresses for Sen. Lindsey Graham (S.C.), Sen. Mike Lee (Utah) and Sen. Orrin G. Hatch (Utah) — all members of the Senate Judiciary Committee. Consequently, Sen. Hatch’s wife “has been receiving calls nonstop ON HER BIRTHDAY and their home address was made public,” according to ZeroHedge.

Who did this anonymous evil doxxing? Though the information was quickly removed, the IP address of the offender was traced back to none other than the House of Representatives.

In fact, it was traced back to Maxine Water’s (D-Calif.) office.

Waters denied her staff did this.

“Lies, lies, and more despicable lies. I am utterly disgusted by the spread of the completely false, absurd, and dangerous lies and conspiracy theories that are being peddled by ultra-right wing pundits, outlets, and websites,” Waters said in a statement Saturday.

Here’s the thing — this sort of activity is not a joke.  It’s dangerous and someone is going to get killed, if the rhetoric over this hearing — and politics in general — does not settle down.

And fast.

Whoever did this needs to be arrested.  It’s time to bring some order and decency back to our politics.  And — short of that — I’d be satisfied with a little justice.
