15. I think that a pattern of voter suppression by Blackwell is the point.
The closing and/or changing of inner-city precincts has the effect of suppressing the minority vote. Maybe Bob could have chosen a different example as evidence of this fact.

Closing precincts in large cities is just one of the tools that Blackwell used to suppress Kerry voters in Ohio.

At least, that's what I got out of it.

I can't speak for Bob's motives but I don't get the feeling that he was intentionally trying to mislead the audience. He would respond if you emailed him your concerns at the address I posted upthread. I don't feel like it is my place to initiate further contact with him on this point.

I appreciate that you took the time to view the video and post your comments!
