Who me?

Danville Tea Party leader Nigel Coleman was one of the two activists who posted Bo Perriello’s address online Monday.

“This is Rep. Thomas Stuart Price Perriello’s home address,” Coleman wrote Monday. “… I ain’t holding back anymore!!”

According to the Politico Web site, when Coleman learned that the address actually belonged to the congressman’s brother, he responded on a blog: “Do you mean I posted his brother’s address on my Facebook? Oh well, collateral damage.”

Coleman told The Daily Progress today that he is “shocked” and “almost speechless” at the possibility that someone would sever the propane line to Perriello’s brother’s house.

“I obviously condemn these actions,” he said. “I would hope that people aren’t thinking about doing anything crazy. We just wanted people to get close to the congressman and have their voices heard. Violence is not going to answer anything. I’m a little shocked and amazed.”

Coleman added that he is not certain that the incident is related to the posting of the home’s address. “Of course, we don’t know this is a related event,” he said.

BTW: Dday makes a brilliant observation. Periello is anti-choice as are others like Stupak and Steve Dreihaus, all of whom are enduring these threats from the teeabaggers:

I would say that Driehaus, an anti-choice Democrat who was among the last holdouts of the Stupak bloc, now knows what young women who seek a legal abortion go through when they have to endure threats and intimidation and shouts of “Murderer,” but that’s only tangential to my point. (He should think about it, though. Leadership matters.)

They should all think about it. And think about George Tiller too. The anti-choice people have been terrorizing women and clinic workers like this for decades.
