republican bait and switch

"Dozens of newly minted Republican voters say they were duped into joining the party by a GOP contractor with a trail of fraud complaints stretching across the country."

"Fliers warning that people with outstanding warrants or unpaid parking tickets could be arrested if they show up at the polls on election day appeared recently in predominantly African-American neighborhoods of Philadelphia. Zach Stalberg, the president of the nonpartisan watchdog group Committee of Seventy, suggests that a Republican Party supporter may have posted the fliers in an effort discourage voters."

Those "freedom" loving Goppers want to be "free" to be the only ones casting votes. Jim Crow has returned, in high heels and lipstick. That pig needs to be sent back to Alaska.

Republican election fraud and voter fraud... those are the only things that I fear will crush our hopes in 2008. Republicans know that they can never win a fair election, so they have to rely on denying peoples' right to vote, subverting the votes of those that do vote, and on and on as your links describe. We were laughed at when we approached these subjects following the last two presidential "elections". Thank goodness the media are finally devoting some attention to this.
