Ms. Cano Explains

Scott wrote here and here about Minneapolis City Councilwoman Alondra Cano who disregarded a judge’s order to participate in a Black Lives Matter protest at the Mall of America. That action drew critical emails from several of Cano’s constituents. Cano responded by tweeting the names and home addresses of the citizens who expressed their disagreement.

This is known as “doxing.” This local television report does a good, and brief, job of summing up what happened:

Cano later deleted the tweets, and said she worried that the online backlash from what she described as the “white supremacy community” was detracting from the broader point of the protests.

There you have it! People who think a city councilwoman should conduct herself in a legal manner are members of the “white supremacy community.” In Minnesota, this kind of insanity is not enough to prevent one from being elected to public office.
