Tim Griffin's enemies list

MAKING A LIST: Tim Griffin
  • Think Progress
  • MAKING A LIST: GOP Reps. Dan Webster (L) and Tim Griffin.
Think Progress devotes more attention to U.S. Rep. Tim Griffin's efforts to suppress and intimidate critics at his public meetings. Wonder if he'll follow with photos of his enemies next go-round, as his colleague in Florida did.

At a Griffin town hall, staffers were handing out the Watch List to attendees, calling it their “homework.” Griffin staffers were also spotted taking photos and shooting video of attendees, creating an extra layer of intimidation.

While Webster and Griffin are ostensibly making these lists to screen out paid activists, the people they are targeting are regular constituents who have simply spoken up and expressed their disagreement about important policy decisions.

Run, Pat, run.
