Obama campaign mobile app reveals which of your neighbors are registered Dems

posted at 5:01 pm on August 5, 2012 by Howard Portnoy

Just when you thought the Obama campaign couldn’t get any weirder, along comes its latest high-tech gift. Meet the Obama for America app for iPhone, a tool that allows you to spy on your neighbors to determine which of them are naughty (read: not Obama supporters) and which are nice. What you do with that information is entirely up to you.

The website ProPublica explains how the app works. The end-user types in his current location. The app returns a Google map of the area that flags households with one or more registered Democrats. Clicking on one of the blue flags reveals the first name, last initial, age, and gender of Democratic voters who live there. Not creepy at all.

ProPublica’s Lois Beckett notes that this information is publicly available and that canvassers for political campaigns have long had access to it. The question is why Obama for America thinks the average man on the street should have it at his fingertips.

An Obama spokesman is quoted as saying:

The campaign is strongly committed to ensuring the safety and privacy of the public and follows up with appropriate action, including alerting appropriate authorities if necessary, in any case of abuse or inappropriate behavior. Any voter who requests not to be contacted again is immediately removed from any provided to volunteers.

The assurances about “safety and privacy” might be easier to swallow if the campaign hadn’t previously come out with other online gems, including:

Careful readers will recall that the Obama campaign’s efforts to get voters in other voters’ faces predates his presidency, finding expression in then-candidate 2008 Obama’s “Neighbor to Neighbor” campaign.

This shows that the modern age requires a modern attitude. This type of thing, including “internet transparency” for donations, is going to seriously disadvantage conservatives.

The leftist activists are going to be active and often effective in working to publicly disgrace and humiliate conservatives, especially donors; stodgy conservatives cannot compete with the activists in the arena of public humiliation. Anonymity is needed. Conservatives, such as the misguided McCain, need to stop and desist all seemingly good-intentioned effort to reduce anonymity in politics.

I would download the pc version of that as I would love to go meet democrats in my area. I believe I could get as many as 10% of them to consider changing partys this year, and even get a few votes for Governor Gary Johnson.

Ah, so THAT’S how this works. Rather than first ask permission to invade one’s privacy, they invade it anyway and then said person has to ask THEM [pretty please, with lot$ of donation$ on top] to stop.

I really, really, REALLY can’t fathom how ANYONE with a sound mind, a job, and a decent self-esteem would register themselves as a DemocRAT.

SnarkySam on August 5, 2012 at 5:15 PM

For those who believe this is creepy, you should know that your voter registration information is availiable to anyone who wants it here in MI. We can get a copy of your information just by requesting it from your local registration office.

We use it to connect with voters when working out GOTV efforts, and individual candidates use it when trying to get votes in the general elections.

If you get political mail it is because your information is out there.

rob verdi

You’re missing the point: This app ALREADY tells you where the Republicans are.

Simple: Stand on any block, launch the app, and it will highlight all the Dem houses. All the remaining houses therefore will be Republican, or at a minimum “independent,” whoch is as good as Republican these days as independents are breaking toward R.

Thus, the “negative information” in the app is essentially a list of Republican or conservative homes.

Dem operaives can now walk down any street in America and “key” Republican cars, to diminish the amount of free cash they might to donate to Romney. Etc.

And Obama knows it.

Zombie on August 5, 2012 at 5:16 PM

Don’t need that. The app shows Democrat voters, so the good little O-bots are free to terrorize anyone who’s not a Dem. If they make a mistake and terrorize a few imdependants, well you can’t make an omlette without breaking a few eggs.

crazy_legs on August 5, 2012 at 5:17 PM

So they recognize that “abuse or inappropriate behavior” could result, and they implemented it anyway? Is there some legitimate purpose for this app that makes it worth the downside risk?

No need for that. Simply not being a registered Democrat is sin enough, as far as these thugs are concerned.

Yeah. I’d say the vast majority of people know their voter registration is public information. But we’re used to it being available to people who actually want to make an effort to find it out. Someone would need a rather legitimate need to spend time to go down to the registrar’s office and look that information up.

But at someone’s fingertips no matter where they’re at. Immediately?

That just screams out “here comes trouble”!

skeeterbite on August 5, 2012 at 5:27 PM

Interesting. If you’re a registered Democrat, now, if you are unfortunate enough to live anywhere near a Democrat who has the itch to be an ‘organizer’, you can expect to be visited by your fellow Democrat regularly for donations, to demand your ‘help’ with canvasing, protesting, or anything else they deem necessary.

Don’t want to participate or donate? They know where you live.

They needn’t go to the trouble to get that information in the time consuming old fashioned way of requesting the registry from officials… they can just look you up on their phone.

The rest of us are actually fairly safe by comparison. We may be a conservative, a moderate, a registered member of the GOP, and Independent, or we may not be a registered voter at all. Not everyone does their civic duty or even chooses to participate. We may even be a legal immigrant and not have voting privileges at all. Those looking to identify ‘fellow Democrats’ will have no way of knowing.

Why do I have the sense that this app is aimed, not at the GOP or Independents, etc. as much as it is at Democrats. I wonder how long it will be before that app also lists how often they have voted, how much they donated… or didn’t… and how many hours of ‘volunteer’ service they’ve expended on behalf of the party.

thatsafactjack on August 5, 2012 at 5:29 PM

Any voter who requests not to be contacted again is immediately removed from any provided to volunteers.

UNADULTERATED BULL. First, the campaign has a virtual enemies list and been targeting private citizens who are supporters and/or donors to Romney’s campaign or PACS, as well as ordinary people who have appeared in ads responding to O’s “you didn’t build that” fiasco. Second, how would they know if “inappropriate behavior” or “abuse” occurs? Third, if the campaign cares about “privacy” why is it spreading false rumors about Romney’s private tax returns?

The idea being that they want to pressure dems who realized that HopeNChange wasn’t what they were sold who prefer to stay home to board the Democrat voter fraudbus and go vote.

This may have a negative effect. Dems who don’t want to vote pressured by other Dems into voting to save the Boy-King’s ass might vote Romney just to spite them…

How much you want to bet they soon put out an app they will ostensibly claim is for “persuasion” of Romney donors and their addresses that instead will be meant for the use of the “persuasion of power”.

Well, the privacy concern expressed by those who don’t reflexively vote Democrat is understandable. But when you consider the history of the Democrat Party includes a supportive home for the dehumanizing institutions of slavery and partial birth abortions, the loss of a little privacy is probably not a big deal to the liberal lap dogs.

This enables the Obama administration to round up and separate Americans quickly and efficiently by political affiliation when elections are outlawed on Nov 5, 2012, and martial law is declared simultaneously.

TexasDan on August 5, 2012 at 6:20 PM

Congratulations! You post is as irrelevant as any I’ve read from a liberal. Devoid of content, off topic, and all it lacks is the fall into sophmoric filth.

Maybe that is an improvement for you?

DannoJyd on August 5, 2012 at 6:24 PM

Go down to the bottom of the page and select “privacy”, then follow the instructions. It is a 2 step process. Make sure you delete your former addresses as well. It also tracks your family members so you should alert them.

Key West Reader on August 5, 2012 at 6:16 PM

Thanks, I just found it.

TexasDan on August 5, 2012 at 6:25 PM

You can’t be serious. Download an app vs. contact registrar’s office and slog through all the files.

Buy Danish on August 5, 2012 at 6:19 PM

I certainly can be serious. Only the registrar would be forced to ‘slog through all of the files’ since the person wanting the information would know exactly where to look on the list.

Besides, since when was anyone concerned about Democrat voters? Do you believe they are under attack?

So what? Is there a movement going on to harn unregistered voters? You DO realize that appx. 60% of Americans are not registered to vote, right?

Maybe they are looking for illegal aliens?

Intimidation. It’s what Dems do. “You gonna vote for Obama, right? Nice house you got there. Shame if anything happened to it”

That makes no sense.

Key West Reader on August 5, 2012 at 6:29 PM

ROTFLMAO! I would pay HUNDREDS of dollars to support any such effort. OMG! The liberal politicians and press would be changing their Depends every few minutes if that came to pass on a national scale! HAHAhahahaha….

DannoJyd on August 5, 2012 at 6:33 PM

I would love for one of these liberal dbags to knock on my door.

Go ahead punk, make my day….

LevinFan on August 5, 2012 at 6:34 PM

That makes no sense.

VegasRick on August 5, 2012 at 6:31 PM

That is my point! It makes no sense to worry about registered Democrat voters since NO ONE is reportedly targeting them.

IF ANY GROUP went after registered Democrat Voters we would never hear the end of it.

SEIU

The Oministration IS worried about Dems voting for Romney so stop kidding yourself.

The purpose of the app is to target Democrat voters.

Key West Reader on August 5, 2012 at 6:44 PM

I think Moocher Map would be more appropriate.

hillsoftx on August 5, 2012 at 5:08 PM

This is a GREAT idea!
There should be a at to see which people are collecting state or federal assistance – now THAT would be eye opening! When people start looking around themselves and seeing how many people are recipients of aid, it will really drive home the point that there is WAAAAY too much government largesse taking place, and far too little individual responsibility.

Key West Reader on August 5, 2012 at 6:42 PM

That is THEIR PROBLEM! They made their beds. It is their right to go sleep in them. Since they gave us the 0bama Regime I’m quite happy with the unproven notion that they will be visited by the SEIU members who cannot speak English, or the unwashed masses of OWS protesters.

Shall we discuss the Easter Bunny next? Some people believe in that too.

DannoJyd on August 5, 2012 at 6:52 PM

IMHO, the only way this could be a problem is if it showed which democrats voted for republicans in 2010, or showed who stayed home.

IF they try to use it to target Romney supporters they just made that job a LOT harder to do since less than 60% are registered to vote, and those households will fall in with those not registered as Democrat voters.

For those who believe it will be used to strongarm democrats, … DO SPREAD THAT MESSAGE!!! Pass along the rumor if you think it will get people to vote for ABO. I will not because people listen to what I say, and since I work to get Conservative politicians elected I dare not allow them to be indirectly associated with anything that might very well prove to be a lie.

Finally, people worried about how this effects keeping their own information private, it is up to you to discover which candidate is running on restoring civil liberties.

America always gets the government it deserves.

DannoJyd on August 5, 2012 at 7:03 PM

Cool! Now I’ll be able to pinpoint which houses to steer the dog to for biolgical functions without remorse over not having a waste bag. I figure anybody who defecates on America with their vote is deserving of gratitude from our furry friends.

Happy Nomad on August 5, 2012 at 7:55 PM

Cool. When the zombie apocalypse happens in December, I know which neighbors not to protect… of course how can you tell a democrat from a zombie?

Wolftech on August 5, 2012 at 7:56 PM

My trashcan has an old “Nixon/Agnew” sticker on it? What do you suppose a Democrat might make of that?

Dee2008 on August 5, 2012 at 6:18 PM

Your average democrat of today won’t even know those names.

wildcat72 on August 5, 2012 at 8:04 PM

1. You can be absolutely sure that there is a similar app targeting Republicans. If someone went to the effort to download all Democrats, it is not any harder and in many ways easier to download all Republicans into the Democrats’ computer database at the same time.

2. The Democrat app was probably created with the intent of “persuading” Democrats to be sure to go to the polls and vote for “Teh Won” one last time ["One Man, One Vote, One time"]. It does not mean that persuading will be a one time effort. I suspect that the end stage if there are signs that the registered Democrat will not do the “Patriotic” thing will be what Key West Reader on August 5, 2012 at 6:29 PM said.

3. See 50 Rules of Combat They Never Taught You, especially #22: Tracers work both ways. http://www.intercom.net/user/logan1/rules.htm

I’m sure that no one at the RNC will act on the information, because responding to Democrats seriously is not in their mental universe. Not all those opposing Obama are in liege to the RNC. I would hope and assume that there are those who have downloaded the app for use who mean the Left ill, for use before or after the election, or in the event that there is not an election.

4. I am sure that the Democrats have their own similar uses planned for the Republican database that they surely have.

5. Whatever happens, I am pretty sure that it will be futile to ask for quarter at this point. If homes become targets, and the rule of law is gone [see the last 4 years] …..
