Oh the irony again.  GOP caught red-handed committing election fraud.  True (no pun) the story is unfolding.

Here's True The Vote's homepage.  Where you will find their hotline phone number:  855-444-6100.  A bit devilish to mention, BUT CALL TRUE THE VOTE AND COMPLAIN if you are hassled by one of their "poll watchers"

Then call FBI Voter Intimidation 202-514-1888, DoJ Civil Rights Division Voting Section 1-800-253-3931, 1-866-Our-Vote #justincase

Take names, pictures, etc.  If enough of these enemies of democracy are prosecuted, perhaps this type of intimidation will end.  Dare we dream?

You can read the story from Plunderbund.com here:

True The Vote Forged Signatures To Get Observers At Ohio Polls

The FCBOE met today and determined that True the Vote had likely falsified the forms submitted for general election observers.    The new observer forms, filed over the past few days by True the Vote representative (and Hilliard Tea Party Member) Jan Loar, used candidate signatures copied from a previous set of forms filed in early October

All but one of the six candidates whose names appeared on the original form had withdrawn permission to use their signatures prior to the submission of today’s forms.  

During the BOE meeting Candidate Terri Jamison spoke up to say her name was “forged” on the latest round of forms.

True the Vote observers will not be allowed in Franklin County polling locations tomorrow.

Hooray!  True the vote.  GOP is using Orwell as a mentor.

Classic Teahadist, Hatriot, GOP behavior.  And why are women doing these things?  To be popular?

And this is rich:

TRUE THE VOTE AND JUDICIAL WATCH SUE OHIO ELECTION OFFICIALS TO FORCE CLEAN UP OF VOTING ROLLS

Ah, that's what's behind the voter purging this year, perhaps.

Utah Purges 76,000 from Voter Rolls, 16% of SLC Registered Voters!

I'll add this to the list:

2012 List of GOP Election Frauds, November Update

UPDATE, Nov. 6th:  Think Progress has added this to the story:

The U.S. Department of Justice is monitoring Franklin County — home to Columbus, Ohio — to enforce federal voting rights laws and “protect the rights of all citizens to access the ballot on Election Day.”

Numerous studies have shown in-person voter fraud is virtually non-existent in the United States. But attempts to suppress the vote by intimidation and challenges to legitimate voters by groups like True the Vote are a serious threat to what President Ronald Reagan called “the crown jewel of American liberties” — the right to vote.

UPDATE 2X - LET THESE PEOPLE  KNOW, IT'S NOW A FELONY TO INTIMIDATE VOTERS

AN ACT INCREASING PENALTIES FOR VOTER INTIMIDATION AND INTERFERENCE AND CONCERNING VOTING BY ABSENTEE BALLOT

SUMMARY: This act increases the maximum penalties for violating certain election

laws related to influencing or intimidating voters, making them class C or D felonies. It also specifies that town clerks, registrars of voters, and their staff are among the primary, election, and referendum officials who may vote by absentee ballot if their duties require them to be absent from their polling place during voting hours (see BACKGROUND).

EFFECTIVE DATE: July 1, 2012, except for the absentee voting provision, which is effective upon passage.

PENALTIES

The act increases the maximum penalties for certain elections violations. It also makes two of these violations a felony (see §§ 2 and 3 below).

By law, the penalty for a class C felony is a fine of up to $10,000, one to 10 years in prison, or both. The penalty for a class D felony is a fine of up to $5,000, one to five years in prison, or both. Prior law designated a separate and lesser maximum penalty for each offense included in the act, as Table 1 shows.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
