Foul play

We haven't covered this yet, so I thought I'd give it a mention.

The firm of Sproul and Associates has been involved in all kinds of election-related fraud this year: they were involved in trying to get Nader on the ballot in Arizona, and there are allegations, widely regarded was entirely plausible, that Sproul has been destroying Democrats' voter registration forms before they're forwarded from the Sproul employees who collected them to the local election officials.

Let me say that one more time: this company has been employed by the Republican party to masquerade as neutral election registrars, and rip up and toss the registration forms of Democrats. Add to this the shit with felon lists and other ways Republican operatives have been known to harass minority voters, and you have a despicable party organization.

And Democrats are considered whiners for raising hell over this.

Update: Kos, in his latest column in the Guardian, surveys the debacles going on in several states, and provide links where you can get more info.
