Via Hoyden About Town comes this article about the latest Republican dirty election tactic (which should surprise none of us). But one sentence, well, really stuck out at me. Emphasis mine:
Republican John McCain is facing accusations of using a false crusade against voter fraud to suppress legitimate votes as battles over who ought to be able to cast a ballot in the November 4 election intensified.
The top lawyer for the Barack Obama campaign, Bob Bauer, accused Republicans of recklessly “plotting” to suppress legitimate votes and to “sow confusion and harass voters and complicate the process for millions of Americans.”
An estimated nine million new voters have registered for the hotly contested presidential election, and the Obama campaign says Democratic registrations are outpacing Republican ones by four to one.
The McCain campaign contends that an untold number of those registration forms are false and warned that illegally cast ballots could alter the results of the election and undermine the public’s faith in democracy.
We’re supposed to believe that Republicans, are worried about voter fraud and “undermining the public’s faith in democracy”?
Well there you go; sometimes I am left speechless.
