Wow: Heidi Heitkamp Puts Out Campaign Ad Identifying Sexual Assault Victims by Name and Address... Without Their Permission

The wheels are coming off all the buses.

Some women say they're not even sexual assault victims.

"We are here to let you know that you are wrong -- this is not 'a movement toward victimization' it's about being a survivor," the ad reads. "We are here to let you know that we have all suffered from domestic violence, sexual assault, or rape -- and that yes, we expect somebody to believe us when we say it. Because it happened."

At the bottom of the letter is a long list of North Dakotan women who are identified as sexual assault survivors. However, some of the women named in the ad say the campaign did not seek their permission.

"A lot of these people listed, including me, did not give anyone permission for our names to be posted," Kady Miller wrote on Facebook. "I don't even support Heidi Heitkamp and I am not a domestic abuse survivor."

"This is completely unprofessional," commenter Keeley Beck, who also found her name on Heitkamp's list, wrote. "I want justice," she added. "For myself and others who were illegally used and taken advantage of for corrupt, infactual, political propaganda."

Another women wrote on Facebook that she was "disgusted" and "furious" to see her name in the ad.

Phil Kerpen has a long thread in which he quotes Heidi Heitkamp's response, presumably from a press conference. She takes responsibility, which isn't really a heroic gesture -- she is responsible for this. She's not being magnanimous.


Here's one of the women, venting:
