VIDEO: Flake caught defrauding voters

12 News' Brahm Resnik just broke a big story: Congressman Flake's campaign is calling voters likely to cast their ballot for Rich and telling them to go to the wrong polling place to discourage them from voting.

These calls are paid for by the Flake campaign and coming out of the Flake campaign -- not some shadowy outside group. At a time when both parties should be encouraging people to vote, Congressman Flake is actively trying to mislead voters and make it harder for folks who prefer Rich to cast their vote.

Please watch this video and share it with your friends.

1. Republican tactics are despicable.

I did not realize just how corrupt members of that party are until this election.
I knew that some individuals had to have been involved in the earlier election thefts but I thought the number of individuals was relatively small. After all, how many Americans, who are being paid by one campaign or another, do you think are willing to try to throw an election with dirty tricks?
I believed the number would be pretty small, partly because I didn't think many would accept that role in an election and partly because I would think that those profiting from the cheating would not want many in the know.
But this election season dozens of people have been caught openly trying many tricks to limit other American's rights to vote: tossing election registration cards, changing votes behind closed doors, putting up misleading billboards, calling voters with misinformation, closing early voting locations while hundreds stand in line, various voter suppression acts pasted in state houses, candidates children buying voting machine companies, one candidate openly lying to our faces, a media that distorts reality in an attempt to influence voters, etc..
Apparently it doesn't take much to convince some Americans (republicans) to engage in such un-civic and anti-social behavior.
It really makes me sick. I preferred to think that most of my fellow citizens were honest, even if misguided in their political affiliations, but now I don't have that luxury.

5. True, but they have never been so brazen and open about their dishonesty.

I really thought that people had more integrity than that. That having one's good name meant something in America.
But it seems that winning is more important than respecting others and the systems/rules/community that one lives in.
I guess when anyone brings up the disintegration of American communities, it ought to be republicans who are blamed rather than their poor victims, who fight each other for left over crumbs.
