Leverage the Housing Crisis to Win

In another desperate measure to make sure they win, Michigan Republicans have come up with a new strategy: Marginalize people who are losing their homes.
The chairman of the Republican Party in Macomb County Michigan, a key swing county in a key swing state, is planning to use a list of foreclosed homes to block people from voting in the upcoming election as part of the state GOP’s effort to challenge some voters on Election Day.

“We will have a list of foreclosed homes and will make sure people aren’t voting from those addresses,” party chairman James Carabelli told Michigan Messenger in a telephone interview earlier this week. He said the local party wanted to make sure that proper electoral procedures were followed.
And so our failed experiment with democracy continues. What a great role model we've become. Instead of targeting folks with purple fingers, Republicans would like to target those who have suffered most at the hands of their failed economic policies.

Michigan Repubs FTW!
