    Secret Service Intimidates Private Citizen for Obama

    On Wednesday the 1st of October I received a call on my cell while in the car with my husband. It was a woman who identified herself as calling from the Obama Campaign. The phone # she called from was 903-798-6020 which lists as "Obama Volunteers of Texarkana" (Texas).

    She asked if I was an Obama supporter to which I replied:

    "No, I don't support him, your guy is a socialist who voted four times in the State Senate to let little babies die in hospital closets; I think you should find something better to do with your time." I hung up.

    Thursday, October 2, I answered the front door to find the Secret Service. Immediately I thought of the call and was furious that apparently you are not allowed to call Obama a Socialist without the Secret Service coming to investigate. Instead, they asked me about the following comment, relayed by the Obama Volunteer of Texarkana who called me, unsolicited on my cell phone:

    "I will never support Obama and he will wind up dead on a hospital floor."
    My husband laughed and told them “No, she called him a socialist but she never said a word about him dying.” I gave them my actual quote. The woman asked insolently “Oh? Well why would she make that up?”

    I replied that I supposed she wasn’t happy about what I said about her candidate and the Agent said “That’s right, you were rude!” The last time I checked being rude wasn’t a crime in America.

    Luckily the big file they had gathered on me didn't indicate mental instability or a past life of stalking/crime, however they did want to know how I felt about Obama. That was my limit.

    I told the Agent in no uncertain terms that my thoughts were not pertinent to their investigation, that this was America and the last time I checked I was allowed to think whatever I wanted without being questioned by the Secret Service. In fact, even if I had said what she claimed, that isn't a threat.

    I told them (again) and my husband verified that the statement reported by Obama's volunteer was a lie. I asked them if there was a tape of the call and they said no. I said, "So on the word of a ticked off Obama supporter you are on my porch with no other evidence and you want to question me about my THOUGHTS!?"

    They informed me that there was no evidence she was an Obama supporter…someone calling from his campaign…are you kidding?

    I was not allowed to know the name of my accuser at which point they informed me that it wasn't like I was in a court of law, YET, as if this was a good thing.

    I recognized this as a veiled threat. I told them I would happily go to court since I did nothing wrong and at least then my accuser would have to face me rather than sending the thought police to my house.

    They then said they were trying to do me a favor, that they came to me first before “embarrassing you by going to all your neighbors and family”, another threat? I told them to be my guest and talk to whomever they wanted but they weren’t going to investigate my thoughts on my porch.

    They also informed me that it would be easier if the next time a supporter calls me I just say "Yeah sure count me in, or just hang up" apparently so she won't get her undies in a bundle and give them more useless trips. Yeah right. I said "Look, someone calls me unsolicited on my cell phone to ask me to support their candidate and I can't tell them why I don't?" I said I was sorry they made a wasted trip but if they had a problem with some made up lie they needed to go talk to her about it because it wasn't my fault they had to drive from Houston for nothing.

    At one point I went inside and got a notepad to record their badge numbers and they refused to show me their badges. They had done the quick flip when they arrived. I asked for a card and the female Agent refused to give me one stating “You’re not going to get a card.” The male Agent gave me a card and told me I could contact Houston with any questions.

    The fact that the volunteer lied, the fact that the Secret Service came to my house to question me about my thoughts and feelings and threaten to embarrass me to my neighbors and go to court if I didn’t cooperate is not really the tragedy here. Because that girl on the phone doesn’t have the pull to send the Secret Service to my home. Someone high in the ranks of a campaign working for a man who may be the next President of the United States of America felt comfortable bringing the force of the Federal Government to bear on a private citizen on nothing but the word of a partisan volunteer.

    They were not Secret Service...they never argue about showing their badges, and they always have cards.

    They were not Secret Service.

    I see balls...lots and lots of balls....

    I going to post about this. This was a woman who made a call into Sean Hannity yesterday. There were kids in the car in that story. She sure sounded mad and I belived her. Yes, I fell for a bouncing ball!
    I'm glad S.H. told her if it really happened the way she said then they must have misunderstood her.

    I went to the link megimoo posted and it kinda sounds like this woman may have had a visit from some fake SS agents. The husband/kids in car thing still bugs me so I emailed her to ask her if she called S.H.'s radio show. I'll let you know what she replies. Her site seems kinda extreme.

    No we wont because I have serious doubts about its veracity. Secret Service doesnt work this way and never has.

    If there was a visit by people to their home, it was probably campaign workers - the calling lists have the addresses with them. Some rogue campaign worker probably tried a bit of intimidation.
    I long for the days when our President actually liked our country.

    They better watch their step in Texas. A homeowner can legally gun someone down if they feel threatened.

    They just lied to me
    I called the number and they tried to tell me that they don't know why people think that is the number for the Obama Volunteers of Texas. They told me that it is some Bowie county democrat office (and they do support Obama...duh) Well, I went to a website called anywho.com and put in the number (number reversal() and the name and address that came up is:

    Obama Volunteers Of Texas
    323 W 7 St
    Texarkana, TX 75501

    Wish I would've done the number reversal on the site before I called.

    Secret Service visits Lufkin woman after 'death threat' allegation from an Obama campaign volunteer
    A Lufkin woman received a surprise visit from the Secret Service last week because of a "death threat" comment she reportedly made about Sen. Barack Obama to a campaign volunteer asking for her support of the presidential candidate.

    Two federal agents arrived at Jessica Hughes' home Thursday to ask her if she said, "I will never support Obama and he will wind up dead on a hospital floor."
    Obama Campaign Communications for Texas director Josh Taylor declined to comment Monday, refusing to answer any questions and referring the matter to the Secret Service, which he said is conducting an investigation. A message left with a Secret Service agent in Houston was not immediately returned.

    Hughes said she was surprised to see two Secret Service agents at her door, and upset to learn that the conversation she had with the volunteer apparently had not been recorded.

    "I find it hard to believe that (campaign volunteers) don't tape these calls. They call people unsolicited and they aren't monitoring the calls or recording them? I think that is absolutely ridiculous," she said.

    "I mean, how often must this happen — that someone is rude to a volunteer that they don't want to talk to?"

    Hughes said she wants to file a countercomplaint against the volunteer.

    "She has made a charge that will follow me the rest of my life," she said.

    "I find that repugnant and violating — that some person got her undies in a bundle because she didn't like what I had to say.
