This is for real, and IMHO deserving of some blogosphere-wide attention (while everything is still fresh in our minds, and before we get too far into counting-our-chickens-before-they're-inaugurated):MoveOn Political Action is offering $250,000 Rewards for Evidence Leading to Voter Fraud Convictions
(details --- along with some kudos to our fellow Kossacks & and our netizen siblings at MoveOn for pulling off miraculous akido and heavy lifting --- beneath the fold...)
MoveOn.org Political Action is offering a $250,000 reward for new material evidence leading to a felony conviction for an organized effort of partisan voter suppression or electronic voting fraud.
Throughout the day accusations of election fraud and voter suppression incidents have been flooding into state and federal authorities throughout the country. In Virginia, the FBI has launched a criminal investigation into charges of voter suppression. In 20 Congressional districts, NRCC robocalls appearing to have come from Democrats harassed voters with repeated calls in an apparently coordinated campaign to suppress the vote.
Complementing an earlier reward for whistleblowers, MoveOn's reward is being offered to anyone who provides this information.

I'd like to acknowledge and thank all the dKos folks who deftly akido'ed the slimy rovian robocall gambit and threw it back in their faces, with incredible agility -- all within 36 hours! I especially liked these:
Make the Robocall BS a National Scandal. Use it in TV ad
Ask Media Figures to Spread the Word About Robocalls (UPDATES)
Every NRCC robocall may carry a $500 fine
Fighting RoboCalls. Expert advice. Multiple updates.
Hard data on voter-suppression robo-calls (CONTRIBUTE!!) (6 updates)
Fighting Robocalls: Grassroots, NOT NETROOTS-style defense
With skills and results like that, some of you cyber sleuths may well be in the running for a cool quarter mil :)
Our netizen sisters and brothers at MoveOn (many of whom are us :)) certainly deserve substantial karma points for pulling off some hugely good stuff. In particular, let's give a DailyKos high-5 for MoveOn.org's Calling for Change initiative --- 6,921,140 calls made!
And thanks, MoveOn / Protect Our Votes, for ponying-up a serious prize... for what we at dKos naturally do anyway ;-)
