    Doug Preisse, chairman of the Republican Party in Franklin County, which contains the city of Columbus, admitted in an email to the Columbus Dispatch that black voters would now have a more difficult time voting:
    I guess I really actually feel we shouldn’t contort the voting process to accommodate the urban — read African-American — voter-turnout machine. Let’s be fair and reasonable.

    Secretary of State Husted most recently suspended two Democratic members of the Montgomery County Election Board for voting to allow weekend voting in spite of the directive to restrict hours.

    -----------------------------------------------------------------

    This isn't about "photo ID". This is clearly about restricting voter rights.

    Speaking of Voter ID:

    -------------------------------------------------------------------

    The comment has Democrats on edge, as they say it further proves their argument that the law was politically motivated and created to help Republicans.

    "Voter ID, which is gonna allow Governor Romney to win the state of Pennsylvania, done," he said, drawing applause.

    ----------------------------------------------------------------

    Finally, some Republicans are being truthful and telling America they are trying to "undermine democracy".

    Now the "can of worms".

    Polls put Romney's support from the black community at ZERO. Yes, "0%". I have voted in every election since Nixon and Republicans have received a portion of the black vote in every election. But this time is different and not just because the president is black.

    Going after the rights of African Americans and attempting to take away their right to vote is "aggression". This is a declaration of war. Do Republicans think today's black Americans will take this type of attack? Remember, it's only war if they "fight back". And they will "fight back". Believe it. This is a can of worms Republicans will wish they never opened. You heard it here first.

    I guess you missed the part about cutting days and shortening hours while targeting blacks.

    You can't hide behind "Photo ID" anymore. Republican leaders have spilled the beans.

    Pssst, in case you didn't know, the rest of the US is not a bit like Chicago. Nope, not even close. Your alderman knows this but he doesn't want you to know. :eusa_shhh:

    With unemployment in the black community so high during this administration, how could you find hours and days when blacks couldn't vote?

    In Ohio it's tradition for African Americans to vote after church. It's a great way to ensure that the elderly and disabled have rides to the polling places.

    Could you be less whiny?

    I never said that. I said its a long standing tradition in Ohio. I made no comment on rights.

    However, I do feel, the cutting of hours, typcially when minorites vote, as well as the added restrictions to register voters, in many of the the swing states, feels shady to me.

    If blacks are so god damn stupid they can't figure out how to do something as simple as voting what do you expect the rest of us to do?
