33. He is Robert Frickin' Kennedy. He has a few notable connections.
He should get his whole damned family to hold a massive press conference highlighting this scam. The news media couldn't ignore such a thing--they are Kennedys, after all, and a large Kennedy press coneerence would be something that would attract attention. Maybe add a couplke of Cuomos and other Democratic family dynasties to the mix.

They should also contact The National Enquirer and other tabloids that a lot of people read who don't even read newspapers and news magazines. Maybe even People magazine. Get the info to the voters themselves, along with isntructions about how to check if they are properly registered to vote, and what to do if they aren't--as well as the time frame it has to be accomplished in.

Volunteers who are registering new voters also need to be informed, massively, and encouraged to add voter registration checks to their activities.

They could even contact Whoopie and Barbara on The View. Those two ladies have shown themselves to be pretty disgusted with McCain's sleazy campaign and they might be willing to help get the word out. Oprah would be a great contact, since she reaches millions and they listen to her. These TV hosts wouldn't even need to make it a partisan thing. All they would have to do is explain the laws and how they are being used, without specifying parties. The Dems will know they are the ones being targeted and then could take action to make sure they are registered accurately. If MTV is doing a "Rock the Vote" thingie this year, they could be brought on board, too.

Finally, once this election is over, a big noise has to be made--and these high profile folks could help us make it--to get these repugnant laws rescinded.
