I've read that the GOP in Iowa threatened to shame voters who chose not to vote by stating their name publicly. While this may be legal it is a pretty nasty thing to do. I personally can't remember a time in this country where politicians treated voters with such contempt. In my opinion, it is a symptom of a much larger disease that has been growing in this country. I'm sure there are stories of democrats doing this as well such as when accusers of BIll clinton were shadowed during the Lewinsky scandal in the 90s. It just seems like the people in power have no real fear of the people anymore.
