    Not a whole lot of coverage of this story in the mainstream media, for some reason. I can't imagine why. :rolleyes3:

    ‘Angry’ Ex-Dem Staffer Who Doxed GOP Senators During Brett Kavanaugh Hearings Is Going to Prison

    A 27-year-old former Democratic staffer for Sen. Maggie Hassan (D-N.H.) who later interned for Sen. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-Texas) was sentenced on Wednesday to 48 months in prison for doxing Republican U.S. Senators during the Brett Kavanaugh Supreme Court confirmation hearings of 2018, and more. U.S. District Judge Thomas Hogan said that “We have … a society that has become very vicious,” adding that it was “very concerning to the court and unfortunate” that Jackson Cosko “played into that.”

    ...Cosko “became angry” on September 27, 2018, while watching the Kavanaugh hearings on TV, and ended up “maliciously publishing the personal home addresses and telephone numbers of Senators Lindsay Graham, Orrin Hatch, and Mike Lee.” Cosko’s intention, the government said, was to “intimidate the Senators, and with the knowledge and intent that others who learned of the information would then use the information to intimidate the three aforementioned Senators, as well as members of their immediate families, by using the information that the defendant had now made public.”

    Cosko proceeded to edit WikiPedia articles “so that the articles would include the Senators’ home addresses and telephone numbers. The defendant also helped publicize those edits, by posting or ‘re-tweeting’ posts about his edits over Twitter,” prosecutors said.

    When Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) called for investigation into the doxing, Cosko decided to publish the “personal home addresses and telephone numbers of Senator Paul as well as Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, with the intent to intimidate them, and with the knowledge and intent that others would use that information to intimidate them.”

    Meanwhile I found myself extremely unsurprised by the photo of this all-too-typical liberal white soyboy, with one exception: Usually this look gets capped off with a pair of horn-rimmed nerd glasses. Maybe he wears contacts?

        Seems like a light sentence, especially knowing no one actually serves the time given

          I imagine CNN covered this story with the negative tone deserved.

              These leftist clowns get it in their heads that it is their leftist duty to pull mess like this.

              Same as Comey and all those crooks with spygate and the coup attempt on Trump.

                lol! She looks like the misbegotten love child of Simon & Garfunkel, if such a thing were possible. And don't you dare tell her it's not possible, or she'll get her pencil-necked partner in crime to dox you.

                  Sheila Jackson Lee must be proud -- must be, she's been issued talking points.
                  All persons must be allowed unfettered pursuit of career happiness, whether you're a politician or a cake baker.

                        Not on the federal side. He will do 85% of that.

                        I wonder how you only get 4 years for a variety of crimes, seems like 10 or 20 would be correct.
