Papantonio: GOP Won’t Abandon Voter Suppression Tactics

When you look at the areas of the country that experienced the most severe voting problems, you’ll start to see a pattern developing – you’ll find that the problems were emerging in lower income, minority-heavy, democratic precincts across the country. This wasn’t a coincidence; this was exactly what the GOP had been planning for the last two years. They created confusion, chaos, and frustration for voters as they were forced to wait in line for 6 or 7 hours just to be able to cast a vote. Mike Papantonio talks about the GOP’s efforts to make voting a hassle for democrats and minorities with Adele Stan, the Washington correspondent for Alternet.

1. Can you imagine the margin of victory had repugs not

suppressed votes, controlled the touch-screen machines, had thousands of knuckle-draggers on the radio screaming in peoples' faces?

2. Yeah, I can imagine the landslide that would happen if there weren't voter suppression.

So can the republicans and the kleptocrats, which is the reason for voter suppression.
