GOP Attacking American Voters

GOP attacks on American voters turn desperate, ugly and dangerous

The GOP assault on American voters has hit full stride as the economy and John McCain tank in synch.

With just over three weeks until election day, the Republicans have mounted an all-out attack against newly registered voters and the organizations working to sign them up. As many as 75% of these new voters are expected to vote Democratic, but the attacks have also spread to long-established voters as well. Recent calculations show more than a million more newly registered Democrats in Ohio than Republicans.

The usual drumbeat claiming massive voter fraud has become ceaseless at Fox "News" and other right wing media mouthpieces.

Dude, the Leftist ACORN group has been committing voter fraud in practically every state its operating in. And, who worked with ACORN during his glorious community organizing days? Barack Obama, of course!

The GOP isn't attacking American voters, and to say so is ludicrous. Sorry they don't want dead people registered, or people registered in multiple counties, or felons illegally registered. If that's the only way you Dems can win, that's pathetic.

Hey spoon fed talking point "Dude", Did you even read the article?
Seems we have this kind of issue right here in the Burg. Evidently hundreds of registrations have been refused and when people called in to find out why the office wouldn't tell them.

That happened to my friend! The person he talked to (by phone) in the office said that there were "irregularities" in his form. He asked what and the lady wouldn't tell him. He went down to the office and it turns out that he got two numbers inverted on his social, crossed through them and wrote it in correctly. They refused the form because it had been "altered"!
Good grief!

Quit trying to steal the election with illegal votes and you'll have nothing to fear. ACORN and their ilk are to blame. Now we have to be more careful because they have been demonstrated to have tried fraud. Don't you democrats WANT fair elections? Do you think it is a fair election if people are cheating enough to possibly effect the election?
