A right-wing hate group funded by Art Pope, who is also the budget director of North Carolina, today began posting mugshots of Moral Monday protestors as a "game" of intimidation. The story is unfolding as we speak.
Here is a link to the website in question.
In the meantime, I have sent an urgent message to Mr. Pope demanding that he shut down the work of his minions.
Dear Mr. Pope.
Do you remember a couple of years ago when you called the Attorney General's office and asked them check up on me? I sure do. I had been writing about my weapons training in the military, and you managed to think it was all about you. Or maybe I should just say you were scared.
So imagine my surprise today when some of your minions began to single out Moral Monday protestors on the Civitas website by posting their photographs.
I will be contacting the Attorney General's office tomorrow with a formal complaint and a request that he investigate the Civitas Institute. After that, I will be looking into filing charges against you and your organization for intimidation.
Your people are out of line. You have 24 hours to shut down your little game.
