GOP Tweets Democratic Staffers' Home Addresses Perriello-Hurt race in Virginia takes nasty turn By Nick McMaster, Newser Staff Posted Sep 8, 2010 5:41 PM CDT 71 comments Comments In this Aug. 17, 2009 file photo, Rep. Tom Perriello, D-Va., speaks in Fork Union, Va. (AP Photo/Steve Helber, File) (Newser) – A nasty congressional race in Virginia has gotten a little nastier, via Twitter. A National Republican Congressional Committee spokesman tweeted the home addresses of several Democratic campaign staffers, the Richmond Times-Dispatch reports. He posted the addresses of staffers working for Rep. Tom Perriello's campaign after the Perriello camp called his opponent's spokeswoman a "carpetbagger." Background of note: In March, a tea party activist posted the home address of Perriello's brother (he thought it was the congressman's), and someone then cut a propane line to a gas grill in his yard. Worse for Perriello: He's in serous danger of losing, and the national party may divert funds to closer races, notes the Washington Post.
