4. Here's another fellow who specializes in collecting absentee ballots
Edited on Sun Jan-09-05 08:16 AM by DoYouEverWonder
from poor black people. Remzey Samarrai has managed to get himself elected to the Micanopy City Commission three times, despite the fact that almost everyone in the town can't stand him. How does he do this? By going into the homes of poor, elderly, preferably illiterate black people and 'helping' them fill out their abstentee ballots. The big difference between Remzey and Izzie is that Remzey is a Repug Party loyalist. Remzey and the fellow who wrote this article, both just got appointed to high level jobs in the State Dept.

Guest columnist: Immigrants are Republican Party's future

November 28, 2004

In the town of Micanopy, a majority black town outside of Gainesville, the election of Arab-American Remzey Samarrai to mayor is another indication of how immigrants and their children are finding the Republican Party appealing. A conservative Republican, Samarrai was re-elected in June 2003 with 83 percent of the black vote on a platform of increasing and improving city services.

Unlike many black and white politicians who are tripped up by the thorniness of race in politics, Samarrai's solutions have practical appeal. A Christian, he received strong support from the black religious community, which shares his conservative social views on abortion, gun rights and gay marriage among other topics in this small, rural town.

Oh BTW, how the hell does Green know that Remzey got 83% of the black vote?
