GOP senators are literally being doxxed during their question periods in Ford-Kavanaugh hearing, by someone on Capitol Hill

Philip Wegmann reports at the Washington Examiner that the effort is coming from somewhere in the House of Representatives.  The Wikipedia entries for several senators have been altered to post their home and other personal contact information, just in the last couple of hours.

Wegmann has a screen cap of a tweet from the account @congressedits, showing that the updates have been made. (Wegmann’s image blacks out the personal contact information.)

Earlier, other Twitter users were reporting the same thing.

“Undercover Huber” and Gabriel Malor also indicate the complicity of @congressedits.

Gabriel Malor cautions that there is public wifi in the House office buildings, which means anyone could appear to be using a congressional IP address. Implication: the perpetrator(s) may not actually be congressional staff.  A valid point, and good to keep in mind.

We can assume this is not being done by Republicans on the Hill.  Harassing Senator Hatch’s wife is particularly — to use Wegmann’s word — despicable.
