On Friday night, Rep. Rod Blum (R-IA) posted the contact information of a reporter who’d asked him about his being a member of a Facebook group full of racist posts. Florida gubernatorial nominee Ron DeSantis was a listed moderator of the same group. Instead of answering, Blum published a screenshot of the reporter’s email, including the reporter’s contact information. It remained public on Saturday.
