In an election year where nothing horrible seems all that surprising, Lou Dobbs managed to surprise the world via Twitter by sharing a tweet that doxxed one of Trump’s accusers, Jessica Leeds. Doxxing means he shared her name, her address and her phone number on the social media giant; nearly 800,000 people follow Lou Dobbs, and the tweet he shared was retweeted nearly 1000 times.

And Trump supporters and Clinton supporters wonder why women who are sexually assaulted by a powerful person may not come forward.

This is what trolls do, Lou.
They share people’s information on Twitter to shame, intimidate and threaten … and to silence.

It would seem Lou and others have shown EXACTLY why these women (on both sides) have kept quiet for as long as they have.
But don’t worry, he’s sorry.
