TPM is looking for evidence of the media buying into the bogus voter fraud meme. Well, here's evidence from Ohio.
The Cleveland Plain Dealer, on the day after the Cleveland Browns smacked down the Super Bowl Champion NY Giants, put on it's front page, above the fold, an ACORN story, which boils down to TWO voter registrations being cancelled, and ONE voter being told to vote with a provisional ballot.
Video after the jump.
The same guy who brought you the McCain Palin Mob (Part 1 and Part 2) got his PD today, and just lost it. Front page, above the fold, the PD makes some 19-year-old kid a poster child for bogus ACORN vote fraud, over 73 registration forms he turned in, out of 65,000 total ACORN registrations in Cuyahoga County. Check it out.
Here's what Tim notes in his post.
This is what David Iglesias was referring to on Terry Gross’ Fresh Air last week. Iglesias said that a well-timed, however bogus, "voter fraud" investigation, in a place like Cleveland, where black voters can be easily scared away from registering, let alone voting, can shut down black votes. Well, Terry Egger and his goon Joe Guillen are attempting to do just that, by putting a clueless 19-year-old on their front page.
If I’m black, and I’m in Cleveland, I’m going to vote on November 4 with a packed lunch, a chair to sit in line, and some good gospel music on my IPod, because you’re going to have to OVERCOME. And consider it a badge of honor that people like Terry Egger and Joe Guillen are trying their damnedest to scare you off.
I ain’t afraid of these people. And neither should you be. Eyes on the prize, people.
Folks, they are setting up their little conspiracy theory to claim the election was stolen. Send this to TPM as evidence of the bogus vote-fraud meme.
