“This suggests she doesn’t have the temperment to be a Member of Congress.”
During the testimony by Dr. Ford and Judge Kavanaugh this week, someone doxxed three Republican senators by adding their home addresses and private phone numbers to Wikipedia.
Gateway Pundit and RedState have claimed in separate reports that the internet footprints lead to someone in the House of Representatives office of California Congresswoman Maxine Waters. She denies the charge.
Aris Folley reports at The Hill:
Maxine Waters responds to ‘despicable’ accusations her office leaked GOP senators’ information
Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) denied allegations being pedaled by “ultra-right wing” pundits and outlets claiming that a member of her staff was responsible for the release of personal information regarding U.S. senators.
Waters’ statement arrives on the heels of reports this week stating that three Republican senators’ personal information was leaked just hours after the Senate Judiciary Committee heard the testimony of Christine Blasey Ford, a college professor who accused Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault while they were in high school.
The three Republican senators whose information was leaked onto Wikipedia were reportedly Lindsey O. Graham (S.C.) , Mike Lee and Orrin G. Hatch (Utah), according to The Washington Post…
“Lies, lies, and more despicable lies,” Waters said in a statement shared to Twitter on Saturday. “I am utterly disgusted by the spread of the completely false, absurd, and dangerous lies and conspiracy theories that are being pedaled by ultra-right wing pundits, outlets, and websites who are promoting a fraudulent claim that a member of my staff was responsible for the release of the personal information of Member of United States Senate on Wikipedia.”

Some people have noted the tone of Waters’ response. Twitchy reports:
Let’s apply the new rules to Rep. Maxine Waters’ angry denial that a staffer of hers doxxed GOP senators
As Twitchy reported, a handful of Republican senators had their personal information, such as home phone numbers and addresses, published on Wikipedia this week as they were questioning SCOTUS nominee Brett Kavanaugh about allegations of sexual assault. The IP address suggested that the edits were coming from a computer in the House of Representatives.
Word got around that the edits had been made by a staffer in Rep. Maxine Waters’ office.
This denial is angry. This suggests she doesn’t have the temperment to be a Member of Congress. When someone is accused of something they didn’t do, they must not be angry. They must not be defiant. They must not question the motives of the accuser. They must be calm and serene. https://t.co/IcMiozv5mk

I can totally see her holding her hand over the mouth of the aide that did this.#JenRubin

You seem angry.
You don’t possess the disposition to be a member of Congress.
The accuser must be believed.
As the accused, you must remain calm.
No one has come forward to verify your statement.
Therefore, you are guilty.
Welcome to the new #Democrat rules.

I’m sorry. One person said it so we must treat it as completely valid. It matters not if a single other person on earth backs up your statement. It matters not if a single fact can be verified. That’s how this works now. Enjoy your new rules. https://t.co/2nkXELgE77

They feel a bit different when accused.
