The Wrong Question

12Nov08

Jim Wooten put up a post this morning, beginning with a simple question on the AJC website:

Does anybody actually believe Republicans are trying to keep legitimate voters from exercising their right to vote?

I think this is the wrong question to ask. The right one is “Does anybody actually believe partisans are trying to keep legitimate voters from exercising their right to vote?” To which I would answer, unfortunately, yes.

From redistricting tricks to return required mailings to unverified voter purge rolls, I believe it’s all too easy for elected officials to look the other way for a few people’s rights when their job is at stake.
