Inaccurate sample ballots describing Republican Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. and Senate candidate Michael S. Steele as Democrats were handed out to voters in at least four polling sites in Prince George's County this morning.The ballots were handed out by people who said they arrived by buses this morning from Pennsylvania and Delaware.
After a two-hour bus ride to Maryland, Markle said the workers were greeted early this morning by first lady Kendel Ehrlich, who thanked them as they were outfitted in T-shirts and hats with the logo for Ehrlich's reelection campaign. Nearly all of those recruited, Markle said, are poor and black. Workers traveled to Maryland in at least seven large buses.
Ehrlich spokeswoman Shareese DeLeaver said the sample ballot was produced by a local branch of the campaign that targets Prince George's Democrats who support Ehrlich. She said it was not a deceptive effort.
He calls it Steele Democrat...Like a Reagan Democrat. If someone is too stupid to know who their candidates are SCREW THEM. That's how I feel.
I have already asked the mod to add some paragraph tags to kick the second image over to the left. Sorry.
They aren't Steele Democrats, except for 1 of them.
Oh, and NONE are Ehrlich Democrats.
If memory serves, CNN also identified Steele as a Democrat some time back.
Only idiots don't understand that these "ballots" are from a GROUP calling itself Ehrlich/Steele Democrats.
WAPO's complaining about dirty tricks? WAPO?
Seems to be a lack of english comprehension. If they were trying to say that Steele and Elhrich were democrats then the "democrats" would have been before the names not after. Putting it after would mean those democrats belonging to Steele and Ehlrich. Oh by the way, for democrats to call that low, after throwing oreos at Steele, is beyondm hypocrisy.
This was brought up when both candidates were on MTP. Steele explained exactly what he meant by his campaign handing out Steele Democrat stickers. He was sending them out to Dems who were for him, much like the phrase Reagan Democrat in the 80s. It's a weak arguement and blatant whining on the part of the Post/Dems.
These are the Democrats we heard about last week who endorsed Steele. It's no trick.
The funny thing was Fox News identifying Foley as a Democrat all day when he resigned. The liberals were so pissed off.
This stuff is an old trick btw. This one has been going on forever. It's a way to trick stupid voters. Both parties pull this one. You are a candidate who isn't that well known. You put yourself on a card with a whole bunch of candidates from the other party people vote for usually. You offer this guide and pray somebody who doesn't know better votes for you too. This one has been going on for over 30 years. It's just typical politics. Dems are getting whiny.
Does anybody actually determine their vote based on the literature handed out in front of the polls? Seems to me if you don't know who to vote for when you go to the polling place, why go?
I got it. You got it. Why is WAPO so dense?
Pathetic in what way? Reagan Democrats helped elect Dutch.
hee hee hee..... i love politics
The dems broke off keys in the locks of some republican office this morning... childish, AND illegal (seriously illegal) but clever....
