    GOP unnerved by Democrats' candid camera techniques

    Politicians recognize they give up a degree of privacy when they run for office.

    But Democrats are testing the outer limits of that understanding with a practice that raises questions about when campaign tracking becomes something more like stalking.

    While most serious campaigns on both sides use campaign trackers — staffers whose job is to record on video every public appearance and statement by an opponent — House Democrats are taking it to another level.

    It depends on what the voters feel is moral or proper.

    If they think stalking the opposition is okay than they can vote accordingly.

    I think doing this, with the video/picture of people's family houses and their family's addresses being posted publicly, goes too far. its not a left/right thing this is a right/wrong thing.
