If Dems want honest elections, why did a Soros-backed group hire criminals to get out the vote?

Monday, June 28, 2004 12:01 a.m. EDT

When the Associated Press last week turned up evidence that America Coming Together, an anti-Bush group funded by $5 million from financier George Soros, had hired dozens of felons to go door-to-door and register voters in Florida, Missouri and Ohio, the defensive fire from ACT was swift and predictable.

First, ACT claimed it hadn't employed violent felons. Then when the AP reported that ACT employees included people convicted of assault and sex offenses, the group admitted it might also have hired felons in 14 other battleground states. It also promised to fire anyone guilty of "violent or other serious offenses." In some cases it won't have to; four felons it hired in Missouri have already gone back to prison, including one for endangering the welfare of a minor.

That's one reason the Missouri Department of Corrections banned ACT from its list of potential employers for parolees in halfway houses. Noting that the felons would have to handle driver's license information and telephone numbers as part of the voter-registration process, the department concluded that "from a public safety standpoint, we didn't want offenders to be in a situation where they would be handling that information."

George Soros is not the "Dems," George Soros is George Soros.

Who said the Democrats want honest elections? The Republicans took us to school in 2000 on the subject of dirty election tactics. Both before and after the election in Florida, the Republicans pulled every dirty trick in the book in stealing the Presidential Election from us. Screw it. The Republicans want to play rough? We'll show you rough. Ever hear of Mayor Daley in Chicago? He was a Democrat.

Well put, don. No offense to you, but that's why I'm glad I'm an independent, because I don't have to sit around defending anyone
