As Twitchy told you last night, a group of women outed as sexual assault survivors (in some cases incorrectly) in a campaign ad for Democratic Sen. Heidi Heitkamp are currently exploring legal action. With good reason.
What Heitkamp’s campaign did isn’t just reckless and outrageous; it’s also potentially very dangerous. At least one woman outed in the ad is now reportedly fearing for her life:
I am informed that a victim of the Heitkamp ad credibly fears the ad has exposed her location to her abuser.

What in God’s name possessed Heidi Heitkamp’s campaign to ever do something like this?

OMG that's horrific.

This is horrific, and should be just cause for impeachment.

Is there any remaining doubt that Heitkamp’s career should be over?
I hope they sue the hell out of Heitkamp. 🙏 for the victims

Pray that all of these women stay safe.
