The Democrats Are Watching

The Democrats Are Watching

Republicans have noticed that footage of their homes is appearing online.

It’s not unusual for campaigns to keep tabs on their opponents, but Democrats are taking the tactic to a new level. Several videos have surfaced online that show the homes of Republicans. The videos have some candidates feeling as though their life is becoming a real-life version of George Orwell’s novel 1984.

In the minds of some, the privacy invasion is not as bad as the safety risk that presents itself when everyone knows where a politician lives.

“I feel it’s totally inappropriate,” said Representative Reid Ribble (R-Wis.). A silent clip featuring Reid’s home appeared on the Internet on June 18. “It was disturbing to me that they would put that online. I don’t understand any political benefit that can be achieved with that.”

 

 

“I’m more creeped out about this than Reid is, just because I’m home more,” said the Congressman’s wife, DeaNa Ribble.

Representative Jim Renacci (R-Ohio) was informed by a neighbor that someone had been hiding in his bushes and filming his house.

“I think your family or your personal life should be off-limits unless it enters the campaign. It’s hard for my neighbors or my family to get comfortable when someone is in the bushes,” he said.
