105. Ummmmm
John Ashcroft runs DOJ. And the head of the Civil Rights Division is a Bush appointee. And DOJ is sending attorneys to a number of polling places, how many I do not know, to "observe". I read in an article (by former federal prosecutor Jeff Toobin) that many of these "observers" are federal prosecutors. Toobin(?) suggests that using federal prosecutors for this purpose may discourage African-Americans from voting.

I decline to express a personal opinion on this.
