Back in 2004, the Republican National Committee hatched a plan to knock minorities off voter rolls. They sent letters to people in poor communities in states that wold be swing states in the election that year. If the mail came back as undeliverable, they would go to the registrar of voters and get the person taken off the rolls. Many legal voters could not vote because clerical errors enabled Republicans to kick them off the rolls. There were no such efforts to purge voters in affluent communities.
Two of the key players linked by e-mails to that effort were Christopher S. Carr, and Richard Beeson. Filings by the Romney campaign show they are among the most highly paid members of his campaign staff. Beeson gets a check for $6875 every two weeks. Carr gets $6312 every two weeks. And Beeson was one of 9 staff getting bonus last month, when the Romney campaign gave him an extra $37,500.
I wonder what they are doing to earn that kind of money?

    No, I watch the news. It's happening in a lot of states. I would actually like it if I heard Obama address the issue though. Of course we all know the best way to start a debate is with an insult. Thanks. You have a nice day, too, troll.

    Troll? Me? No, not really.
    What I hear is bama saying those lies and then his sheeple parroting what he says.
    Tell me what part the republicans are sending back a couple of centuries.

    Voter restriction laws. I had thought that was obvious.

    Not a troll? Let's see, you jump in with an insult right away while assuming I'm propagating lies that came from the President...none of which is true and none of which had anything to do with my original comment.

    If it acts like a troll...it's a troll. Goodbye.

    No, still not a troll even when you keep screaming it.
    Have a great weekend.
