Teabagger Tries To Harass Congressman’s House, Lists Wrong Address, Stands By His ‘Journalism’

Something else entirelyThe Politico has a funny story, so /LINKBAN temporarily: Teabaggers are harassing poor Virginia freshman Rep. Tom Perriello. (To whom you libtards might want to spare some reelection $$$ if you can, since he’s a good, populist voice who has made many tough votes and could use a Reward. This is how it works when Democrats actually pass major laws; we’re so used to just bitching about everyone and everything and ruining their careers, which is more fun.) ANYWAY, the teabaggers are trying to destroy this guy’s life, and having some trouble.

A tea party organizer angry over Rep. Thomas Perriello’s (D-Va.) vote in favor of health care reform published what he thought was the freshman member’s home address on a blog, in case any readers “want to drop by” and provide a “personal touch” to their views.

Rather than giving out Perriello’s address however, the tea party activist mistakenly printed the home address of the congressman’s brother. Perriello’s brother and wife have four children under the age of 8.

In the post, the author gives out the address to his “friends” in Perriello’s district.

The author was tracked down and is this idiot named Mike Troxel, head of the Lynchburg Tea Party, which may or may not even be in Perriello’s district. But who cares? Teabaggers won’t be redlined into obscurity by these damn Democrats.

Troxel, however, still thinks that the address is Perriello’s house, because of Journalism:

Troxel found the address through a directory website and said he would only replace what he currently has on the blog with an address provided by Perriello’s office.

“If they would like to provide me with the address of Tom, then I’d be more than happy to take it down,” he said. “I have no reason to believe it’s not his house.”

“We’re pretty ticked off he voted for it,” Troxel said.

Troxel, a 2005 graduate of Liberty University, added “I was a journalism major in college, so I have every reason to believe my research is accurate.”

Emphasis ours, because why not emphasize the funniest sentence ever?
