GOP voter suppression

Sorry, this is just plain scary.......
Watchdogs Flag GOP and Tea Party Voter Suppression Tactics - COLORLINES
Kirk’s plans are just the tip of the iceberg.

Fire Dog Lake reports that GOP politicians are carrying out a similar effort in Wisconsin:

Basically, the Republican Party of Wisconsin would identify minority and student voters in Wisconsin using the voter file. Americans for Prosperity would send mail to this list “indicating the voter must call and confirm their registration information, and telling them if they do not call the number provided they could be removed from the voter lists.” This is untrue, and also could be illegal coordination between a state party and an outside group. But this highly mobile group of voters may no longer live at the addresses provided, meaning that the mail sent by AFP would get bounced back to them. Then, tea party affiliates would send their members as monitors to the polls on Election Day, with a list of individuals whose postcards were returned to challenge those voters at the polls. This is textbook voter caging, a technique Republicans have used in past elections.....................

Michael C. Dorf, a lawyer for the Giannoulias campaign, sent a letter to the office of the Cook County State’s Attorney. In the letter obtained by TPMMuckraker, Dorf alleged that the tactics used by Republicans and identified by groups like Project Vote are “scare tactics” which he said “violate both state and federal voter protection laws.”

In a statement, Giannoulias said, “That sort of Florida-style voter intimidation is disgusting, illegal, and smacks of the Karl Rove politics that Illinois voters are sick of.”

TPM makes clear that Kirk is not a lone Republican actor in his endeavors. The Republican Party is orchestrating the effort:
I welcome moving this article to the "misleading" thread if anyone can prove it is.......
Of course what do you expect........
Who among us hasn't donned duckie pajamas for a night out with scantily clad women, then run for Congress?
Does this tie into the fat poor thread?????

You mean the two New Black Power guys dressed in ducky pj's, armed with a pair of bimbos? That's very different, as those guys in Philly aren't going to run for Congress, despite their obvious qualifications.
