Real Voter Fraud

This billboard has suddenly appeared in black, Latino, and university areas in the battleground states of Wisconsin and Ohio:

It is a blatant attempt to suppress the vote among groups that tend to vote Democratic. So you might be wondering who is behind the ads, which only say they are from a “private family foundation”. But Clear Channel won’t tell you, even though their own company policy forbids anonymous billboards. Even more suspicious, the company says they will ensure that this will not happen again, but according to NPR almost identical billboards went up in Milwaukee in 2010, again funded by a “private family foundation”.

And of course, Clear Channel itself is owned by Bain Capital, which Mitt Romney founded and ran until he became a politician.

Republicans continue to claim that voting fraud is epidemic, but there is no basis to these allegations. In fact, studies done show the opposite. It is ironic that the only election related fraud I’ve heard of is being done by Republicans.

Is it any surprise that a UN-related organization is sending 44 election observers to monitor for anti-democratic activities?

UPDATE: The Virginia Attorney General and the State Board of Elections have refused to investigate the case of the Republican Party contract worker accused of throwing voter registration forms in the trash. The Virginia registrar even claimed “I don’t think there’s any political motivation” in the case. Sheesh.

UPDATE2: Clear Channel started taking down the billboards today, rather than reveal the identity of who paid for them.

  2. This message brought to you by the Republican Party: We just wanted to remind you that we understand that we’re constantly committing felonies punishable by up to 3 1/2 years imprisonment and a ten-thousand dollar fine.

    The election is being hinged for the Republiecans on the fact that they know their candidate is lying and that’s OK, but to win we must scare honest people into not voting. After all a dishonest person wouldn’t care if it was illegal to vote. I’ll admit that Obama hasn’t been perfectly honest on details by lies of omission or tweaked facts, but he has been true to his core values a more than Romney who has had disdain for the truth like a door mat. I would hope this meant something to the American people, but skin color trumps reason. God help us.

    Really! Does it say “Voter Fraud is a felony…only democrats will be prosecuted”. The billboard wasn’t sent to someone’s house. Everyone that views it receives the same message, don’t they? Unless they are guilty, there is nothing about which they should worry.
    Here are some examples of real intimidation.

    WilliamJefferson: Your argument is invalid, because the billboards didn’t appear in Republican and white neighborhoods as well. If it was a statewide effort that honestly was aimed at all voters, they wouldn’t have appeared in only select neighboorhoods.
