3 GOP senators doxed during Kavanaugh hearing

As the Senate Judiciary Committee heard from Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh and Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, who has accused him of sexual assault when they were teenagers, Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., Orrin Hatch, R-Utah, and Mike Lee, R-Utah, were doxed on Wikipedia.

Their home addresses, cellphone numbers and other personal information were revealed on the site as the committee questioned Kavanaugh and Ford during an often contentious and emotional hearing.

“Senator Hatch and a number of other Republican members of the Senate Judiciary Committee were targeted after they questioned Judge Kavanaugh,” Gizmodo reported Hatch spokesperson Matt Whitlock as saying. “It’s alarming that anyone would want to put Judiciary Committee Republicans and their families in danger.”
