Secret Service Intimidates Private Citizen for Obama
Posted by Jessica Hughes on Friday, October 03, 2008 2:35:01 PM
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.

I want to file a counter complaint that false charges were made, that a false report was given to a peace officer. The Secret Service told me I cannot because they will protect the identity of the complainant. I also want the file they have on me destroyed and I want to know that my phone isn't tapped et cetera. I am hearing a lot of "Out of our Jurisdiction".

Do I also hear jackboots?

Wow, if that is true...I wish there was a way to verify it, I have way to many libs in my office but hate emailing them stuff without verifying first.

This has happened several times before during various campaigns. It is neither a republican or dem thing but a secret service thing(?). In most cases the protester was detained and not treated with kid gloves. It seems the protester crosses some line and is removed.

THAT needs to be reported on a live news network. I see on the news today ACORN is being investigated in multiple states for voter registration fraud. Obama was their lawyer in his younger days. Payback time. ??? If you are unsure STEAL the election.

I'm raising the BS flag on this one.

Are we sure this lady didn't just wake up and dreamt the whole thing up?

Secret Service (yes, the initials are SS) doesn't have the time or man power to follow up on loose ended BS claims AND Erkle isn't president (yet).  I'm sure there are ppl out there vehemently calling for harm on Erkle, ...and McCain, and Jorge Boosh.  Maybe the last one might get a call.  But until the SS quadruples it's size they ain't coming knocking at your door for BS calls.

There had better have been a recording, and no federal investigator would just go up and knock on the door the day after an alledged threat to "talk about it".  There would be much done before to confirm the credibility of the source.  Doing otherwise could easily get their badges pulled and agents ending up on the rubber gun squad.  And I find it very odd that the writer wanted to see their credentials and they refused.  The first thing to do, unless it's a UC operation, which this was far from it, is to identify themselves.  Since SS Agents do not wear uniforms that would mean showing creds.

As much as I hate the idea of Erkle being president, and do hope he chokes on his ciggies, during elections candidates do have SS limited protection.  And that is they are there to prevent some looney coming in and killing him and his family.  Being that half the country isn't a fan of him, there are many probably wanting to do so and admitting it openly.  But short of an all out threat, communicated by a verifyable source, which would not be a campaing volunteer, and possible include taking actual steps to commit such a threat, an investigator wouldn't go directly to the "alleged suspect" the day after the complain. Sounds as if either the tin foil hat is a bit tight around the head or the BS meter on this one is pegged high and someone has an overactive imagination. 

She is on the money on the phone number and perhaps she did get a call, but I'm calling BS on the jackbooted fantasy.  Houston Secret Service number can also be easily found, 713-868-2299.  I have only to wonder if it had bothered her so much why doesn't she state to seek a lawyer, since much has been claimed to have been violated, or at least call in and complain to OIG?

It's too much, too soon, and a bit over the top.  I say attention whore classification, someone wants their 15 minutes of blog-lory.

And BTW, SS doesn't need to come and knock on your door.  They have very sophisticated equipment.  If you knew what it can do, THAT would piss you off and justify the tin foil hat.  Maybe even the extra thick one too.

I'm with ya on the BS call... 8)

I have a couple associates who work in that particular area of operational support, so I called one a few minutes ago and asked.

He laughed out loud and said there is no way it would ever play out like that. I sent him the link so he could chuckle.

If you've ever seen inside the Suburbans staged over at Andrews AFB, you'd know what GM means by sophisticated equipment.

I agree. It is one thing to remove a protester from a rally and quite another to act like this. BS on this one.
