“Doxxing” is the latest word to hit the American lexicon. Slang for “documenting,” doxxing when used in the context of the internet is when someone’s private information is made very public.
Depending on whatever jurisdiction criminal doxxing may take place, the act in and of itself, is usually illegal.
But in this day and age of the likes of James Thomas Hodgkinson, an admitted “Bernie Bro,” who essentially went hunting for Republicans to assassinate last year (wounding House Majority Whip Steve Scalise, R-LA, as well as Capitol Police officer Crystal Griner; Zack Barth, a congressional aide; and Matt Mika, a Tyson Foods lobbyist), as well as Barack Obama urging his supporters to “get in the face” of those who disagree with the Leftist agenda, doxxing can be down-right dangerous.
When any person in the public eye constantly has a camera or a microphone shoved in their face, more often than not the opportunity for cringe worthy comments increase exponentially. But for Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-TX) , cringe worthy seems to be the norm vice the exception, as reported by the right-of-center news portal Breitbart.com on March 12, 2014.
Rep. Jackson Lee took to the floor of the US House of Representatives (see video below) where she matter-of-factly stated that the United States has been “operating under” the Constitution for the past 400 years.
