When Wisconsin Rep. Sean Duffy started taking heat for complaining that he was struggling to get by on his $174,000 salary, the Polk County GOP yanked the video of the townhall meeting from its website; now it's trying to eradicate the video from the Internet, reports Talking Points Memo. TPM reposted the video; the county GOP then demanded that TPM's video provider, Blip.tv, take it down. Thus far, no dice—you can still watch it here or read all about it here.
