Dirty election tactics in Missouri

So I’m at a phone bank in LA. One of our phone-callers lets me know that someone has been flyering Democrat leaning households, with a poster saying that if voters get annoyed with the long lines tomorrow – they can request a mail ballot on the day and vote later. Of course, it’s pure rubbish.

This is just to give you an idea of the sort of tactics Republicans get up to on election day here. The number of reports that will come out today and tomorrow on voting irregularities are going to be staggering. Tomorrow I’m going to be poll monitoring in the morning.

    Yep we’ve been hearing of some of this over in the UK. Flyers being handed out telling people that democrats vote the day after the polling day and republicans on the day it self.

    The thing that interests me is we don’t seem to hear much about who’s putting this shit out. Yet when a democrat linked group like ACORN make a few mistakes it’s national news…

    Leon,

    Well, with the tech available today, one person (if they’re prepared to invest a little time and a modicum of money) can act in ways that would before have taken quite a significant campaigning group…
