A mailer sent to Oregon voters by the AFL-CIO warns that their voting history is a matter of public record, Breitbart.com reported Wednesday.

"Your voting history is a matter of public record," the mailer declares, implying that the union can determine how people vote.

"The reverse cover of the pamphlet features an historic photograph of a union strike, in which the worker in front is carrying a poster that reads: 'DO NOT CROSS OUR PICKET LINE,'" Breitbart News said.

The blogger who sent the mailer to Breitbart wrote that the union calls "all the time" asking "all sorts of questions about who we would vote for." The blogger wrote that "if we say 'we will NOT vote for Obama,' they hang up."

"How you vote is a personal decision," the card reads, but the message on the front seems to suggest otherwise.

"It's an updated version of a tool that's served them well in the past: 'Nice little place ya got here. Be a real shame if something was to, you know, happen,'" said a post at Max Redline.

According to Max Redline, the mailer is "already starting to backfire among recipients of the pamphlet."

Despite the implied threat, voting records do not say how a person voted, only that they did.
