Repubs Tear Up the Vote

"Earlier this week former employees of Sproul & Associates (operating under the name Voters Outreach of America), a firm hired by the Republican National Committee to register voters, told a Nevada TV station that their supervisors systematically tore up Democratic registrations. The accusations are backed by physical evidence and appear credible. Officials have begun a criminal investigation into reports of similar actions by Sproul in Oregon," says PAUL KRUGMAN in a NY Times Op-Ed piece (NY Times > Opinion > Op-Ed Columnist: Block the Vote).

Op-Eds shouldn't be trusted any more than -- well, any more than a ranting blogger, I'd say. But the thing with ranting bloggers (and Op-Eders) is that sometimes they're right. And if this Nevada tale holds water for longer than a typical Nevada lawn does, then somebody better get thrown in the slammer for this one. Yeah, yeah ... we've heard stories like this a million times before, but to try and pull this off when everyone is finally paying attention ... when everyone is just WAITING for the next Florida 2000 to happen ... that's takes some chutzpah. Evil chutzpah.
