RNC Trashes Democratic Voter Registrations

The Republican National Committee (RNC) has hired firms in serveral states including Oregon and Nevada to pretend to register democrats and then throw the registrations in the trash. Sometimes using the names of Democratic groups to fool Democrats into thinking they are registering when they aren’t.

The Republican owned news media is trying to avoid this story and is not giving it the attention it deserves. I think that this is at least as big as dan Rather’s mistake – and you can bet that if the DNC were tearing up Republican voter registrations it would be a national scandal.

In order for Democrats to win – they have to get 60% of the vote to offset Republican cheating. It looks like everything is being set up for yet another stolen election.

This comes as a surprise to anyone? We are talking about the GOP, after all. What they did in 2000 is nothing compared to what they will do to retain power. They certainly will not leave it up to an election.

What happens on election day when all these Democrats who registered in Oregon or Nevada through “Voters Outreach of America” are told they can’t vote because they haven’t registered?

They’ll probably be told to “get over it”.

Might have answered my own question. Just saw this: http://story.news.yahoo.com/news?tmpl=story&u=/ap/20041017/ap_on_el_pr/florida_felons_voting&cid=694&ncid=716)

“Election officials have said that anyone who feels they have been inadvertently removed from the voter rolls on Nov. 2 will be allowed to use a provisional ballot that will be examined later to determine eligibility.”

I imagine that applies to voters in general and not just ex-felons in Florida. After last election, this one is going to be heavily scrutinized.
