ShutDownDC issued the offer last week, offering payouts to “DC Service Industry Workers.”
“We’ll venmo you $50 for a confirmed sighting and $200 if they’re still there 30 mins after your message,” they continued.
DC Service Industry Workers… If you see Kavanaugh, Alito, Thomas, Gorsuch, Coney Barrett or Roberts DM us with the details!

The offer comes after the overturn of Roe v. Wade, which lead to protesting outside of the private homes of the Justices and an attempted assassin was found outside of Justice Brett Kavanaugh‘s home.
Kavanaugh was targeted again in a Morton’s Steakhouse, where he departed out the back while the protesters caused a disturbance out front.
It is unclear whether the bounty placed on info about conservative justices is allowed under Twitter rules, but it has not been removed. It is also unclear whether this constitutes stalking.
According to their Twitter bio, ShutDownDC “is an organizing space where individuals and groups can come together to organize direct action in the fight for justice.”
They have not taken direct credit for the protest outside of Morton’s Steakhouse, but they seem to be aiming to put together more protests in that vein.
Ffs, you’re going to get someone killed

What does this accomplish besides disrupt lives of everyone? Why not donate money to a democratic candidate who needs it? Republicans sink low, and we are just racing them to the bottom. Do u think this will change Kavanaugh’s mind? I don’t. Protest by his house or Supreme Court.

The left can’t keep the game where it’s supposed to be played. They can’t win that way. They have to get nasty and take it out of bounds. When somebody plays by their new rules, and it will happen, they will be the first to cry foul. I hope they all get what’s coming to them.
