Group with Clinton Ties Behind Dubious Robocalls<br><br>We've heard all the stories before from general elections of the past. Partisans on the Republican side target predominately black neighborhoods and churches with misleading pamphlets telling them to either remember to vote one day after the election is over, or warning that they might be arrested for any petty tax or parking fines if they vote, etc....<br><br>But this time, it's not a Republican group doing it. This time the group responsible is lead by former Clinton staffers... ya know... Democrats. The group that is doing this, Women's Voices Women Vote, a group whose mission reportedly is to register single women to vote. They say that the calls were just a mistake.<br><br>That's a little hard to swallow.<br><br>Especially since this isn't the first time they have made this "mistake".<br><br>I genuinely hope that Sen. Clinton has nothing to do with this. Make no mistake. This is voter suppression and it's illegal although pretty consistent with the Clintons' well-worn scorn for the black vote in this election.<br><br>-- Cee Bee Double-U
[color:blue]"This sounds like a classic example of voter suppression — sowing confusion in order to drive down turn-out. The calls seemed to be aimed at African-American communities, places where Illinois Sen. Barack Obama is expected to run well ahead of New York Sen. Hillary Clinton."</font color=blue><br><br>Clinton reminds me of Bush. She is so sleazy you come to expect these things from her without batting an eyelash.<br><br>I hope the North Carolina newspapers are all over it and are telling the people that they should be outraged at Clinton.<br><br>I hope they are able to prosecute that group. It's illegal.<br><br>
Do not argue with an idiot. He will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience.
This is troubling... since Bill came on the scene in 1992 with all the Whitewater, Flowers, McDougle hoopla... I've always tried to give them the benefit of the doubt given the Lee Atwater side of the GOP which slanders any and all Democrats - good or bad, guilty or innocent... (look at Kerry and Max Cleland)<br>AND they have even done that to some of their own like McCain in 2000 who they didn't feel like they goose-stepped high enough.<br><br>But after so much of this, even if 10% were true, you really have to shake your head... and I've heard Hillary say some awful and some stupid things in the past 6 months... and then both her and Bill try to make excuses for it. <br><br>Back last year, I was defending her among those that couldn't stomach her.. but I'm really struggling to say I could vote for her any more... sure maybe to keep McCain out ... but geez... I'll not be thrilled about it... <br>But if she gets it, ... I may have to pull a Peter Sellers (Dr. Strangelove) scene.... remember with his arm ? when I pull the lever on the voting machine.<br><br><br>David (OFI)
Didn't like this either:<br><br> Supreme Court says states can demand photo ID for voting<br><br>It made me wonder who might have "called in" a few favors. <br><br>Just funny how <br>Mrs. Clinton volunteered to serve on the Commitee for Voter Reform <br>following the 2004 DIBOLD Paperless Touch-Screen Machine Scandal<br><br>and at the time I figured COOL! The system can use some reforming. <br><br>but as time went on, <br>I heard less & less about the matter, as our thoughts distracted by the<br>everyday barrage of BullShirt and I while it was always in the back of<br>my mind, I felt reassured that Mrs. Clinton was there and "on the job"<br><br>HOWEVER (...bet you saw that coming... )<br><br>I've been having nagging doubts about this overly-ambitious individual<br>that seems to be fully prepared to Stop @ NOTHING<->No Matter What.<br><br>Have we gone and "Put the Fox in Charge of The Hen-House?" <br>Has she learned the loop-holes in the system and learned to Play Them?<br><br><br><br>[color:green]"...or am I a butterfly that's dreaming she's a woman?"</font color=green> [color:green]. . . _ _ _ . . .</font color=green><br>
