I was so saddened to hear of Brenda's story, but even more saddened to hear additional similar stories this morning. Brenda called in to Darla Shine's Happy Housewives Club radio show this morning (archived show will be up soon, Brenda called in about 40 minutes before the end of the show). She was immediately followed by another caller telling a similar story from a different part of the country. I have received reputable reports from North Carolina of similar fraud, and we've all heard the stories of bussing homeless citizens across state lines for early Ohio voting. We must speak out to protect our most vulnerable - defending their right to vote if they are capable, and ensuring that their wishes are followed out.
This is NOT a partisan issue. This is an ETHICS issue. I urge Obama supporters and campaign to speak out and denounce this, and I urge everyone who votes Tuesday to bring their cameras to record fraud and 'shenanigans.' Also see these voter fraud resources:
