Progressives in Full Panic Mode in Wisconsin

There's a lot of activity in Wisconsin. Via Memeorandum, we see that the so-called Wisconsin Citizens Media Cooperative has published some pathetic rumors about a Scott Walker love child. And Althouse responds: "Wisconsin Citizens Media Co-op drops a load on Scott Walker."

But it's the earlier Althouse reporting that's especially messed up, and reminds me of the thug intimidation in California after Proposition 8 passed. See "'We have seen the power of a single mailer disclosing the voting behavior of oneself and one’s neighbors'."
The surveillance effect! It's important for people to know when political organizations, like the Greater Wisconsin Political Fund, are deliberately using a psychological manipulation that has been tested and studied. Please, get out the word that mailers like this are trying to mobilize...

The Surveillance Effect.
And here's the mailer Althouse received, complete with a list of her own and her neighbors' voting activities, "'We're sending this mailing to you and your neighbors to publicize who does and does not vote'."

Althouse Voting

William Jacobson has more: "Just letting you know your neighbors’ political contributions."
