Michigan GOP Targets Foreclosures in Blocking African-American Voters

While the Obama camp is surprised at the venomous turn the McCain campaign has taken (?!), instead of embarking on an all-out, all-fronts attack on the GOP lies and phony outrage, this is what the GOP and their surrogates are up to:

Michigan Republicans plan to foreclose African American voters

The chairman of the Republican Party in Macomb County Michigan, a key swing county in a key swing state, is planning to use a list of foreclosed homes to block people from voting in the upcoming election as part of the state GOP’s effort to challenge some voters on Election Day.

“We will have a list of foreclosed homes and will make sure people aren’t voting from those addresses,” party chairman James Carabelli told Michigan Messenger in a telephone interview earlier this week. He said the local party wanted to make sure that proper electoral procedures were followed.

Not only did this administration sit idly by while people lost their homes, now they plan to benefit politically from it!

Wake the hell up, people! McCain sold himself to the devil--hiring the same Karl Rove and his minions who smeared him in 2000; kowtowing to former "agents of intolerance" the Christian Right; renouncing every worthy piece of legislation he backed and embracing those he so scorned--in order to win this thing. They are playing for keeps. Wake the fuck up!!!
