GOP Runs Ads Threatening To Out Iowans Who Don't Vote GOP

All that was missing from the ad was a horse's head.
GOP Runs Ads Threatening To Out Iowans Who Don't Vote GOP

Here's your latest Republican tactic to encourage voter participation in Iowa. Well, some voters anyway. Republican voters.

ThinkProgress:

Screenshots of Facebook ads, promoted by the official Facebook page of the Republican National Committee feature an ominous message: “NOTICE: All Voting Is Public.” The ad tell voters that “In a few months, Iowa will release the list of individual who voted in this election.” Most troublingly, the ad includes an aerial view of a neighborhood with checkmarks indicating that “These People Voted GOP.”

The sanctity of the secret ballot has been destroyed by microtargeting efforts, it seems. You Iowa Republicans are going to be shamed before your neighbors for not stepping up and electing Joni Ernst, Ted Cruz' soul mate and Cliven Bundy's philosophical equal.

It still boggles my mind that Ernst is surging in the polls. Who is in charge of the voting machines in that state, anyway?
