meat0918: How does an elected official not know their address is public record?


Better question, how does an elected official reach the conclusion, "I better call 911" when dealing with a published newspaper article? Even if you think it's a legitimate and grievous threat against you, why would you call a line for immediate emergency response rather than going to the police, lodging a formal complaint, requesting security in person, or otherwise treating the threat like a non-specific, non-immediate threat? If someone makes a death threat against you and they're not on the phone or inside the house, you go TO the police to file a report and get protection. You don't dial 911 because of a nasty note.

I love that the comments are full of people who did not read the article in order to discover that her address was already public record, along with all the other supervisors and that the article itself contained a less-exact set of details than the public record itself.

Stay smart, Great State of Arizona

Oh, FFS... Why didn't she call the paper first to complain about her address being put in the article?  Then if the paper told her to go pound sand, call the police (the non-emergency number, you dumb bint, not the one for folks that need immediate police/medical/fire assistance).

The fact that she JUST HAD TO respond to the comments in TFA tells me that she's a full-blown attention whore.

/You know she's reading the comments here too--can't wait to see what her Fark handle will be when she starts replying to us.  Anybody have any suggestions for her?

The comments are amazing. I love seeing a full meltdown from politicians. What I wonder in these cases is if there's a young, 20-something telling her, "please don't post in the comments it cant make anything better," and her responding with something like, "no, I'm going to stick up for my rights and values, the people will support me."

Then she gets the validation from the 3 people as dumb as her in the comments that are likely personal friends of hers that she has asked to support her in the comments while everyone else rips her hypocrisy to pieces.

FTFA's Comments from the Supervisor:

Guessing Sheriff Dupnik, Gabby Giffords and others wish they had made a different decision and called for security that Jan 8th where we had that terrible incident. I choose to be proactive to protect my family. Posting Maps to people's homes is irresponsible period.

I've noticed a new talking point (illustrated by the Supervisor in the comments) is for people identifying as members /supporters of the Tea Party movement to take the word "Teabagger" as a huge insult.


Even though they initially identified themselves as Teabaggers because they were too stupid to kow better.

Or go full Democrat and demand the government provide you a walled compound, armored limo, and a retinue of 24/7 bodyguards just in case "the people" -- who you love and only want to help -- don't harbor the same feelings for you.

I'm curious who you're referring to, hoss. Which Democrat is it that "demands" such things? Certainly, you're too smart to be referring to an elected official at the level where their status includes such protections no matter which party they're affiliated with. Right?

Not trying to be argumentative.

I would argue that contributing to a political climate where the tone of debate is one step short of actual violence is probably more irresponsible, given that your home address is a matter of public record.

I, for one am glad this vapid twunt is getting this sort of attention. Her fellow members of the Board of Supervisors bent over backwards in her first term to help her out. They gave her a lot of extra road money for several projects in her district. As a thank you, she protested any spending the county proposed in other districts, went on the radio to rip the county administrator a new one when possible and then as a slap in the face to the taxpayers, she spent tax money lavishly on herself and her staff.

Thank you Fark!!

Yes, no self respecting Republican President would be caught dead in the White House, or in Camp David, or with the Secret Service, or any of the vehicles provided to the office to utilize in order to protect the POTUS.  Nope, they just build a cabin in the woods with their bare hands and Jesus, armed to the teeth with all manner of firearms.  They drive the same truck they bought to haul that lumber and by golly if they have to go abroad, they'll swim the atlantic themselves.
