Web page reveals addresses of campaign donors. (this sux!)
http://www.fundrace.org/neighbors.php ^

Posted on 07/01/2005 1:24:47 PM PDT by Names Ash Housewares

Can they do this? I am not thrilled that my home address and place of employment appears now from a simple google search because of this web page....

http://www.fundrace.org/neighbors.php

I know we must keep track of who contributes to campaigns but zip code should be enough. Not the home address! They have ignored my emails thus far.

So, I cant participate in democracy by donating to republican candidates without losing a level of personal security?

This sux.

So do I have to come up with a special PO box or something to contribute?

I don't want to participate in a democracy.

Democracy = mob rule, and produces things like elimination of eminent domain restrictions.

Thanks. Just looked up my zipcode and now I know who not to give money to IE DOCTORS DENTISTS STORES etc.

As for yourself.... its all the fault of the PATRIOT ACT...(sarc off.)

Seriously is your phone number public?
I'm just wondering why this would bother you so much.

Do what I do: lie. If 10-20 million illegals can live here without a problem, is anyone really going to check that my address on a campaign donation is accurate? I don't think so. If you fear discovery anyway, transpose some of the street numbers and plead dsylexia if anyone ever questions it.

Full disclosure was the law long before McCain/Feingold.

It's nothing new. Federal campaign laws have long required it. Of course, if you donate chump change like me, your name won't come up at all on most reports, lists or searches.

You can bet that a sharp campaign will be checking the donor lists of their election opponent, and if they find fake addresses, it's not going to look good for the side you donated to.

I never realized there were so many Michael Moores in America. At least they didn't all donate to the Kerry/silky pony campaign.

I did contribute chump change. Like $75. Not like thousands and thousands. Chump change is relative of course.

If you own your home, you've got another problem. Your county registrar probably publishes the property records online. All somebody has to do is enter your name and they'll get your address. About the only way around this is to create a trust (DON'T use your name as part of the trust name), and buy a new house under the trust name. It wouldn't help to place the existing house in the trust because the old records would still reveal that you resided there.

This was already public info before CFR.

This info is public. If you don't like it, don't donate.

Nothing yet, probably wont be anything. But I am a well armed male. Imagine someone stalking a young woman. Bingo, I know where she works, I know where she lives. That is not right. Zip code should be enough. Nobody needs know your exact address for this kind of thing.

My zip code revealed almost all donations going to the DNC, John Kerry, Howard Dean, Wes Clark, and even some for Dennis Kucinich.

They could get your phone number through a public records search. Of course, they would have to pay for it.

Give your business address or something. That usually works.

I think donations only greater than $250 are public.

It's public. So are some state contributions.

I don't like it either, but it's public record. We have full disclosure in my state.

A) Nobody is likely to check because of the size of donations that I make, and because I'm a nobody. B) If they did, the "Whoops I transposed digits" defense would work fine. C) I've been doing this for a couple of decades and nobody has tumbled to it. I imagine that there's a big pile of campaign mail in that vacant lot, however.

In my zip code there are probably 300 names total with only about 10% of those donating the DNC candidates. About half of the people who donated to DNC candidates are college professors or teachers.

I live in a college town, which explains it. Good thing my state is always the first to be declared for the GOP candidate.

It would probably scare you to know how easily all of that information is found online anyway.

Anyone who knows your phone number can get your home address.

Hmmmmm?

Just curious, not pointing any fingers.

I came across a efw interesting ones:

1. Robert Haynes Teacher - MASS AFL-CIO John Kerry $250 63 Lincoln Rd (map) Medford, MA 02155

2. Leonore Efaro Not employed - Not employed Howard Dean $500 48 Rulal Ave (map) Medford, MA 02155

3. Philip Pratt Organizer - NEA New Hampshire John Kerry $1,900 696 Fulton St (map) Medford, MA 02155

1 - Since when did the AFL-CIO employ teachers? Does he teach how to lie on a timecard and attack those with opposing views?

2 - How does someone who's unemployed donate $500 to ANYTHING??

3 - More evidence towards the infestation in NH, they're being overrun by Massholes.
