Repugs are nervous in Mississippi - plan to challenge voters
Dear Magnolia Bar Members and Friends:

Just last night, we have heard from reliable sources that members of the Republican Party in Mississippi will be present at heavily populated African American and Democratic voting precincts to challenge residency, age, and other voting requirements. In my humble opinion these tactics amount to nothing more than voter intimidation and disenfranchisement of the citizens of this State.

The founders of this organization formed this organization to promote fairness and justice in the legal system. Thus, this organization has a duty to ensure that no citizen is denied the right to vote! We are asking all members to be available on election day to help address any problems that might arise at polling precincts. Some of you have already volunteered. Thank you, but we need so many others to volunteer. If you are willing to volunteer and have not expressed your willingness, please call the Magnolia Bar office at (601)353-2540 or email us at magnoliabar@bellsouth.net

In support of this effort, we are holding a press conference TODAY at 3:00pm at the law offices of PIGOTT REEVES JOHNSON & MINOR (Carlton Reeves), 775 N. Congress Street in Jackson. Please make all efforts to attend the press conference on this very important issue!

Crystal Martin, President
Magnolia Bar Association, Inc.

4. they have to suppress voters. THERE.IS.NO.WAY.THEY.CAN.WIN.
Not in a fair election. A majority--LARGE majority--of the citizens of this country do not want $hruco returned to power, and are willing to vote to make their wishes known. If estimates are to be believed, there is a massive influx of new new voters, and they ain't going for bush*.

No, the only way to win, or at least appear to win, is to limit the damage by limiting the voters. It's vulgar, disgusting, illegal and what the current-day g.o.p. is all about.

We are greater in number and more motivated, we won't let them win!

We will win this one, we just have to!

9. Absolutely. The gop is probably spending MORE money keeping people...
...from voting than they are spending getting people to vote. It's all about supression and limiting the electorate--especially minorities--in any way possible. We're starting to hear about the *dirtiest*.

These people suck. In a real democracy you encourage EVERYONE to vote. It's that "will of the people" thing.

10. You'd think in Ole Miss
that they'd refrain from doing this sort of thing out of shame about past sins, if for no other reason.

11. Remember it's probably a felony to falsely challenge voters
be sure to know the law and to challenge the challengers as the felons they are.
