But but but...ACORN!

Republicans are scum. Lie, cheat, and steal an election. Power to invade the world and wage war to spread American "democracy" to countries that have resources we want.

re: #1 Joanne (JustJay)

I'm sure there's plenty to go around on all sides. This is just stupid, stupid! I am personally offended as an American. And further offended that most get off with a wrist slap which just encourages more. The quest to the public trough where the winner and their cronies can feed is sickening.

Really? Purposely disenfranchising voters has long been a strategy of today's Republicans and their Dixiecrat ancestors.

Doofus was a congressional intern for Mike Kelly (TPGOP, PA). They won't be able to scrape him off their shoes easily.

Really. And I was referring to Lie, cheat, and steal an election. Very few politicians have or have had halos, D or R.

I read that you need the elections committee, which as a GOP majority, voted not to prosecute him. Wonder why? Scared as to how high up it would go?

He and all the rest should be hung out to dry for a long time.

There's a glaring difference at play. ACORN got in trouble for following the law and not destroying registration forms. Forms that unscrupulous contractors had filled out with obviously fake names to get money. There was zero risk of either actual fraud or voter suppression in that case. When GOP operatives destroy filled out applications like this guy did, they deny real people the opportunity to exercise their constitutional rights.

That's fine as a general statement, but stuff like this is pretty rare in the US. There is no reason to believe that this is something that is being done by anyone on the Democratic side too-- the open question is was this guy working alone and unknown on the GOP side.

Should the GOP be investigated for being a criminal organization after this and evidence of nationwide voter fraud? RICO the national GOP?

Not unless or until investigation of this guy shows he did so at the guidance or request of leadership in the GOP. Alternately, if more individuals (preferably in disparate locations) are caught doing the same thing.

To invoke and sustain RICO you have to show probability that the criminal action is cultural and endemic.

Like Nathan Spruel who has a history of this? Who was contracted by the GOP nationally? Who shares an address in VA with Karl Rove's Crossroads? Who closed up shop in FL when his operation was busted (on video) saying they were registering only GOPers and then moved on to VA under a new business name?

You mean like that?

When you fail to recognize how utterly horrid the GOP has become compared to its competition, you not only do the MBF thing but enable their horrid behavior further. Can't solve a problem if you can't recognize it.

[Link: www.alternet.org...]

But there is more to the story, as evidence emerges to document that it ties into a still-expanding nationwide GOP Voter Registration Fraud Scandal that the BRAD BLOG first began reporting in late September , after we’d learned that the Republican Party of Florida had turned in more than 100 allegedly fraudulent and otherwise suspect voter registration forms in Palm Beach County. The story has continued to widen ever since, to a dozen Florida counties and several other states, now including Virginia, and even to the upper-echelons of the Republican Party itself.

Read the whole thing.

Because in wingnut world, desiring a more diverse university student body = "ethnic cleansing" Fox News commentator Todd Starnes is outraged by the president of Western Washington University's deliberately provocative comment, which he has made at each of the school's past six opening convocations, that "if we are as white in ten years as we are today, Western will have failed as a university." ...

FDNY Commissioner Salvatore Cassano’s Racist Son Quietly Applies for His Old EMT Job
Cassano's reinstatement attempt comes just a little over a year after his embarrassed father issued a statement saying he was "extremely disappointed in the comments posted online by my son." Among his son's galling tweets, were, "I like jews about as much as hitler #toofar? NOPE." On Martin Luther King Day last year, he tweeted, "MLK could go kick rocks for all I ...

More Than Half the Women in These Countries Are Married by the Time They Turn 18
The report is as sad as it is horrifying.

The 14-year-old girl, Wasila Umaru, was married to the 35-year-old man last week. Although she told authorities she was forced into the betrothal, Wasila will ...

Criminalizing Expectant Mothers - NYT
Even by the standards of the growing Republican assault on the lives and rights of women, a new bill passed by bipartisan majorities in both houses of Tennessee's Legislature recently stands out for being meanspirited and counterproductive. If signed by the state's Republican governor, Bill Haslam, the legislation would give Tennessee the dubious distinction of being the first state to specifically authorize the ...

Calgary stabbings: How knife crime in Canada can cause ‘moral panic’
What Calgary police chief Rick Hanson called the "worst mass murder" in the city's history didn't end at the barrel of a gun.

Back Story of Yasiel Puig’s Journey to America Should Concern Dodgers
Seemingly from the moment Cuban refugee Yasiel Puig showed up at Dodger Stadium out of nowhere, arriving last June unwilling to discuss his unknown background, the talk behind the batting cages has been rife with unprintable rumors. There were rumors Puig was smuggled out of Cuba by members of a Mexican drug cartel. There were rumors he still owed the smugglers money, and ...

New York Electoral College: State Joins National Popular Vote Interstate Compact.
Ben Mathis-Lilley, Slate: New York Electoral College: State Joins National Popular Vote Interstate Compact. Instead of pushing for a Constitutional amendment, which would have to be ratified in 38 states, advocates ask individual state legislatures to pass an agreement: that they'll pledge all their presidential electors to the winner of the national popular vote as soon as enough other states pass the law to ...

The Insane History of Rockets at Jet Propulsion Laboratories
The Rocket Boys In the late 1930s, a group of Caltech graduate students were booted off campus after blowing up (part of!) their building during a rocket test gone awry. Unwilling to give up on the joy of semi-controlled explosions, the students and a few of their friends headed into the San Gabriel Mountains. They picked a deserted gully -- Arroyo Seco -- ...
