More sliminess from the GOP:
The chairman of the Republican Party in Macomb County Michigan, a key swing county in a key swing state, is planning to use a list of foreclosed homes to block people from voting in the upcoming election as part of the state GOP’s effort to challenge some voters on Election Day.
“We will have a list of foreclosed homes and will make sure people aren’t voting from those addresses,” party chairman James Carabelli told Michigan Messenger in a telephone interview earlier this week. He said the local party wanted to make sure that proper electoral procedures were followed.
HT: David Schraub, who observes:
Elections are played to win, and Republicans think that the best way they can win is to stop the people who’ve been screwed over by their rule from voting (they tried to pull this on veterans too).
