As noted by investigative journalist Greg Palast and others:


*Republican Secretaries of State of swing-state Colorado have quietly purged one in six names from their voter rolls.

*Over several months, the GOP politicos in Colorado stonewalled every attempt by Rolling Stone to get an answer to the massive purge - ten times the average state's rate of removal.

*Digging through government records, the Kennedy-Palast team discovered that, in 2004, a GOP scheme called "caging” ultimately took away the rights of 1.1 million voters. The Rolling Stone duo predict that, this November 4, it will be far worse.

Former U.S. Attorney David Iglesias (Republican) stated that "I'm astounded that this issue is being trotted out again" again (GOP trumping up ACORN contrived issue) as "Based on what I saw in 2004 and 2006, it's a scare tactic."

And so the GOP is engaging in systematic voter suppression across the country and we have seen the issues in 2000 and 2004 with the GOP attempting to curtail Democratic voting and the red flags of voting machines, yet the GOP shamelessly continues this evil agenda and has the nerve to try to create a contrived "voter fraud" case of its own based on trumping a non election day issue.

Keeping trying wingnuts.

What happened in Ohio? Is this what Obama meant when he said some Acorn staffers did something bad by filling in ballots to get paid? He did not condone that behaviour. You can't blame him for what they did no more than you can blame McCain for people who say that Obama is an Arab or a terrorist.

Really, you need to get back on your meds. 200,000 fraudulent voters in Ohio (courtesy of ACORN, barack hussein osama's buddies) and a DEMOCRAT sec of state there who is trying to hide it all. Not to mention voter fraud popping up all around the country courtesy yet again of ACORN. No surprise since your guy and his pathetic campaign know the only way he can win is by fraud, as his entire campaign is based on lies and cover up. Funny, when libs lie, cheat and steal it's business as usual and when Republicans try to fight it, it's "voter supression." Try again, wingnut.

The GOP is actively taking away the right of people to cast votes.

ACORN is registering a bunch of people. A small percentage of those are not valid. They don't equal fraudulent votes.

Yes, the GOP needs to be slapped for their anti-American tactics.

Oh yes I can blame John McCain for people believing that Obama is an Arab or a terrorist. McCain has used Palin--who has been more than willing to fill the role--to ratchet up the hatred and paranoia at their campaigns rallies, day after day--for weeks now. They have done nothing but spout lies and unfounded accusations. If anything happens to Barack Obama, if he is attacked by one of their looney followers, it will be--in part--because McCain did not step up to the plate and run a clean campaign. In fact, their campaign is positively criminal in its racism and hatred.
