As Election Nears, Cue The RNC DIrty Tricks

The Republican National Committee has started playing its dirty tricks already. They sent a mailer to senior citizens in Florida that tells voters it is seeking to double-check their "unconfirmed" party affiliations while asking for money. A letter signed by McCain tells the Democrats: "We have you registered as a Republican."

Though the RNC claims it's just a fund raising piece, most political observers feel it is a direct attempt to confuse voters and make them question their registration. Also, letters returned as undeliverable can be challenged at the polls for accurate addresses, a favorite GOP "vote caging" trick. Another possibility would be to have voters re-register, and in many cases too late to be eligible to vote.

Eitehr way, it's the same old tricks the RNC tries in every battleground state to dissenfranchise potential Democratic voters. Word to the wise, if you recieved a mailing from the RNC, consider it a fake and full of lies.
