Written by Josh Israel, ThinkProgress.org on Friday, 03 January 2014 15:30.

defeating voter suppression in NC

new poll by a pro-voter suppression group asked 1,000 American adults about the issue of voter fraud in the United States. And despite their arguably slanted question, just 36 percent of those polled agreed with the group’s premise that it is a “major problem.” Judicial Watch, a right-wing group and leading player in the push for more voting restrictions, joined with the conservative Breitbart.com to sponsor the December poll. After asking questions about general corruption in Washington, D.C., the pollster (a GOP-connected firm called the polling company, inc./WomanTrend) posed the voter fraud question.

Aiding and Abetting Voter Suppression: Silence of Modern Day Black Republicans

Written by Peter Grear, Esq. on Monday, 23 December 2013 22:10.

There is a deafening silence in the ranks of modern black Republicans who stand mute as their party of choice relentlessly attacks the civil right that is most responsibile for the rights and privileges of democracy, the right to vote.  There is a group of them that gather with the Tea Partiers, Sean Hannity and other Republican right wingers to denounce President Obama and so-called liberal democrats as representing everything that is bad for blacks in America and accusing them of race exploitation.  I watch them in amazement as they claim to defend the constitution and say that Obama ignores it.  They are very unbalanced in their zeal to demean black Democrats as they ignore the constitutional guarantee of “one man and one vote” and the massive voter suppression efforts of their Republican party.
