Voting Rights Needs More Legs

Or so Cho at ePluribus Media thinks:

Today (4-19-07) George Gordon in his McClatchy article Campaign against alleged voter fraud fuels political tempest is covering some of the same territory folks at ePluribus Media hit in its (4-15-07) article The Voting Rights Act, Voter Disfranchisement and the Tail Wagging the Dog

Key paragraphs from Gordon.

Facing nationwide voter registration drives by Democratic-leaning groups, the administration alleged widespread election fraud and endorsed proposals for tougher state and federal voter identification laws. Presidential political adviser Karl Rove alluded to the strategy in April 2006 when he railed about voter fraud in a speech to the Republican National Lawyers Association.


Civil rights advocates charge that the administration's policies were intended to disenfranchise hundreds of thousands of poor and minority voters who tend to support Democrats, and by filing state and federal lawsuits, civil rights groups have won court rulings blocking some of its actions.

Let's see if we can get this story legs!

One set of electronic legs coming up...
