GOP leader in Colorado posts names and home addresses of public health workers online

On Monday, a leader of a Colorado town’s Republican group began posting the names and home addresses of public health employees, apparently in response to COVID-19 restrictions.  

Mark Hall, lead co-chair of the Parker Republicans, posted the information about two Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment officials on his personal Facebook page on Monday night, then shared the post in a Facebook group that he created, according to 9 News.  

“Every day in our group I’ll be posting the name and address of unelected, non-law enforcement officers who think they can flex muscles in businesses. We’ll see how strong they are at their homes,” Hall reportedly wrote in a since-deleted post.   

Hall released a statement apologizing on Tuesday, saying that “the actions I took were an attempt to express my frustration. But in hindsight, this was a very inappropraite decision.”

Hall, who unsuccessfully ran for Parker Town Council earlier this year, began posting to his personal page on Sunday night about Monday being “the day we as citizens stand up.”
