Jack Ryan is harassing Barack Obama.

The Chicago Sun-Times story "Obama admits he dislikes his most loyal follower" reports that Senate candidate Jack Ryan has sent a staffer with a video camera to tail his opponent, Barack Obama every minute that he's in public. It's standard practice to record the opposition's speeches, but this guy follows Obama in his car, waits outside the bathroom for him, and heckles him at public appearances.

I found out about this from a entry on Lawrence Lessig's blog, which points out that Jack Ryan probably doesn't feel about privacy the way I do. That, in turn, came from this entry on Talking Points Memo.

Despicable.
