  •  Bias in the purge? (7+ / 0-)

    You bet there's bias. Primarily, the GOP was going for all the people OFA et al. registered and got to the polls in 2008. We expect the Voter Reg. office to give us a list of the reinstated voters within a few days. I expect we'll find that the set of reinstated voters will enriched with Dems and minorities compared to the County as a whole.

    By the way, I must give a shout out to Jeana Blake and Bette Conroy of our Voter Reg. office. They worked long, hard hours to process all those 2008 voter registrations from OFA.

    •  I've just read the articles you linked -- (9+ / 0-)

      -- and now understand that by including the 2008 voters in the purge, they did capture any first-time 2008 voters -- which would, of course, mean a lot of Obama voters.

      I think I understand the numbers now:  they were supposed to purge 800 voters (those who hadn't voted in TWO Federal election cycle) but they ended up purging 13,300+ voters.  And the majority of those voters were purged during the three months that the Dem 'overseer' in the office was on medical leave and only the GOP 'overseer' (Harris) was in charge.

      I hope you folks INSIST on a paper-based and public review of restoring the purged voters.  (I noted where the GOP folks were whining 'it's too hard, there are too many record's, wah wah wah . . ..'  Phooey.  It's just paperwork.  Don't let them get out of this part.

      I'd like to see 12,500 La Porte County voters wearing pins/t-shirts that say, 'I survived the GOP Voter Purge of 2012!

      Actually, Mitt, I AM entitled to food.
