In those parts of the country that skew Tea Party, disenfranchising thousands (or more) African American and Latino voters to protect against “voter fraud” is sadly necessary, because even if statistically speaking it never actually happens, it’s the principle of the thing, damn it!
And if three white, upstanding Tea Party operatives get caught in the government building that houses the ballots after hours on election day — almost three hours after the building closed, because they “accidentally locked themselves in” — and were caught by the police with conflicting (not to mention untrue) stories about how they got there, and one of the three was an operative who had already been linked to an illegal and creepy invasion of privacy with an elderly Alzheimer’s patient to get dirt on their opponent, well, hey…
Mistakes happen, amiright? Nothing to see here. No harm, no foul. I mean, it’s not like any of the three caught were black or anything.
I wish this has happened in Alabama instead of Mississippi, because I so would have sent in a $1,000 reward claim to the GOP when this story broke.
