    Yet another case of minority voter suppression being done under the excuse of "jiggering the numbers".

    (I have you on Ignore, so I can't see your post, but)

    I don't see anything wrong with targeting historically shady polling stations with Monitors,

    to insure fairness.

    Let's face it ~ if there's no under-handedness going on,

    WTF cares if there are Monitors?

    After the Panther debacle in Phila, there are going to be a number of people checking to see if the "numbers are jiggered". The DOJ doesn't give a rat's ass. Someone has to.

    What do you want him charged with? Standing there and leaving when the police asked him to?

    Every election it's the same damn thing. These Republicans aren't there to make sure nothing is jiggered. They're there to slow down the process to the point where people are going to be discouraged by the long lines and go home. The selective targeting of black precincts is nothing more than voter suppression.

    No, it's nothing new. Right wingers have been using this tactic to suppress minority voters since our inception.

    Acorn and the Black Panthers. Gave a really bad image of voters in minority. Tis a shame. They need some PR. and they need to stop blaming their self made poor image on white people.

    The Senate candidate, running state wide, has decided to target black neighborhoods. Why exactly? The choice of the verb form of "jig" was interesting.
