Now, just a few days ago, it appears a deranged man might have been inspired by their suggestion:
A Dane County resident named Michelle, who asked that her identity be kept private because Stoll had already obtained some of her personal information, characterized a call she received from him Nov. 25 as harassing.Now, there is nothing to indicate a causal relationship between the Media Trackkker's false report and the stalker's action, but one must admit, the coincidence is rather eerie.
“It’s 10:30 at night and there’s apparently somebody who knows where you live. It’s just a very unnerving and frightening feeling.”
Michelle said Stoll was a stranger to her, refused to identify himself and challenged her to defend her decision to sign a recall petition.
“When this person seemed to be getting a little bit hostile, I ended the phone call and immediately contacted the authorities.”
Stoll told 27 News he used video from a 27 News story on the recall effort to get identifying information on people who signed petitions. The story was ninety seconds in length and included less than ten seconds of names, numbers and signatures on recall petitions, but that videotape was in motion and not highlighted.
Another Dane County resident, who also requested anonymity, said Stoll called her home three times shortly after the 27 News broadcast. The resident said she refused to answer Stoll’s final call, but an answering machine recorded it.
“You can’t even defend your position, now you won’t answer the phone,” the caller said in the recorded message reviewed by 27 News.
“You’ve signed a petition, where they put your name and number up on TV and you’re behaving like a (expletive) coward.”
And with all the video camera and phone cams that the RWNJs are using to try to intimidate petition canvassers, it makes one wonder what they are up to.
