GOP: Lose Your Home, Lose Your Vote


www.thenation.com

Senator John McCain was a foot soldier in the deregulation revolution, which triggered the current banking crisis and the wave of foreclosures. In Michigan, his party wants to deny the right to vote to victims of the GOP's misguided economic policies and the sleazy banking practices they encouraged.

James Carabelli, chairman of the Republican Party of Macomb County outside Detroit, said, "We will have a list of foreclosed homes and will make sure people aren't voting from those addresses," the Michigan Messenger.com reported September 10. Barack Obama's campaign and the Democratic Party quickly filed a lawsuit in federal court on behalf of three Michigan residents who lost their houses to foreclosure, to stop the Michigan GOP from carrying out what Democrats called an "ugly" and "horrific" plan. Michigan is a key swing state where a few thousand votes could determine who wins its seventeen Electoral College votes.

And so it begins... the Democrats try and get people to vote and the Republicans try and prevent people (only those inclined to vote against them) from voting.

What is wrong with this picture?

I've been following this story for a week or so and I have been so surprised that the MSM has not picked it up.

Of course they want to disenfranchise those voters because they are very likely to boot their asses out of elected office.

That's all I can really comment on the topic. I don't want to get the ban hammer and I just have nothing measured to say about this Rovian tactic being used in Michigan.
