N.M. Attorney General Investigating GOP ‘Voter Suppression’

Source: TPM

New Mexico Attorney General Gary King has launched an investigation into a video that allegedly shows Republican officials giving volunteer poll watchers false information about state election law, his office announced Tuesday.

A video brought to light by ProgressNow New Mexico shows a Republican poll watcher training session the liberal group said was “replete with misinformation about ID requirements, the use of provisional ballots, assistance for Spanish-speaking citizens, change of address requirements, and the rights of the disabled at the polls.”

King, a Democrat running for governor in 2014, said he was looking into sanctions against anyone found guilty of voter suppression.

“I will not tolerate voter suppression efforts by anyone, period,” King said in a statement. “We have received a number of complaints since last Friday that there seems to be a concerted effort afoot to discourage some New Mexicans from exercising their right to vote this November. My office is committed to helping ensure fair elections by working to put an immediate stop to such misinformation and publicly correcting what has already been disseminated.”

2. Voter Suppression

Words that describe Republicans and their tactics;

Cheating
lying
con men
crooks
forked tongue devils
slimeballs
shysters
unscrupulous
fraudulent
deceptive
swindlers
grifters
scammers
tricksters
bamboozlers
double dealing
fakes
flim flam artists
flip floppers
spinmeisters
deceitful

I guess this is another thing the U.S. is exceptional at, ignoring election fraud.

4. They've gotten away with it for so long, they think they won't get called on it.

Republican lawbreaking is automatic anymore when it comes to election fraud.
