See how easy?

Posted By on Mon, May 4, 2009 at 12:53 PM

KNWA TV in Fayetteville is apparently doing a story on the online posting of names and addresses of supporters of Arkansas Families First, the coalition that formed to fight the anti-gay Act 1 ballot issue that keeps unmarried people from taking in Arkansas's homeless children. What prompted the story is, of course, that folks who signed a petition to put the initiated act on the ballot freaked out when they discovered that they'd put their names on a public document. (What, they thought only the Secretary of State's office and staff should validate their names and then eat the petitions?)

A reporter called Times reader Susann Walters and asked her how she felt about having her name and address on-line.

She said it was just fine. It's public information, and she's not ashamed of her support (or naive about how easy it is to get anyone's address). See how easy that is, Family Council folks?

The list is published on the Tolbert Report.  (LINK FIXED.) As the teen-ager in my life says, big whoop.
