File Under Dirty Tricks - Voter Suppression

You didn't ask me, but I fully expect that there will be far dirtier tricks employed this election than ever before.

But even when I tell myself that I'm still stunned at the disgusting lengths political operatives will go to suppress voter turnout.

The flyer above is circulating in
African-American neighborhoods in North and West Philadelphia. It falsely states that voters who are facing outstanding arrest warrants or who have unpaid traffic tickets may be arrested at the polls on Election Day.

Looks like the GOP is starting early deploying Rovian dirty tricks.

They must be worried!

Here's the full story in the Philadelphia Daily News.
