The voter ID laws that some states tried to rush through for this election in an effort to suppress Democratic votes were set aside. Thankfully. The laws will go into effect, however, but after the election, giving people enough time to get what is needed to vote.
Since the GOP failed on that front in suppressing votes, what's next?
Voter intimidation. True the Vote is actually training people who will be out at the polls on election day. Their purpose is to "ensure no voter fraud occurs". In actually, their real purpose is to intimidate minorities, i.e., those most likely to vote for Obama.
GOP-led registration groups have been ordered to not register anyone Democratic.
Then we have the Murray Energy Company, who allegedly forced hundreds of coal workers in Ohio to give up a day's worth of pay to attend a Romney campaign event. Also in August, Richard Lacks, CEO of Michigan-based Lacks Enterprises, allegedly urged his employees to vote for Romney and warned them in a letter that an Obama re-election could lead to "higher taxes and lower pay."
Following that we had David Siegel, founder and CEO of giant timeshare company Westgate resorts, who came under fire for an email which he sent out to his employees, threatening that an Obama re-election would result in lay-offs.
Now it's being reported that the Koch brothers, those famous big-oil, Romney-supporting brothers behind Citizens United, have sent out a mailing to 50,000 employees with information on how to vote in this year's presidential election. The COO of Koch Industries, David Robertson, wrote that if Obama is re-elected "then many of our more than 50,000 U.S. employees and contractors may suffer the consequences".
Is this how the GOP now intends to win? By threatening employees with their jobs? This is beyond vile. In light of the fact that their candidate is now known as a flip-flopping liar, they feel the only way to win this election is to steal it and they have no qualms not only of doing it, but also doing it publicly without batting an eyelash.
My question is, how will the media and the American people respond to this?
