The Federal Bureau of Investigation is looking into the possibility of voter intimidation in the hard-fought U.S. Senate race between Sen. George Allen, a Republican, and Democratic challenger James Webb, officials told NBC News.
State officials alerted the Justice Department on Tuesday to several complaints of suspicious phone calls to voters who attempted to misdirect or confuse them about election day, Jean Jensen, Secretary of the Virginia State Board of Elections, told NBCs David Shuster....

I loved the one last year where someone went around telling people that to avoid congestion republicans were supposed to vote on Tuesday and Democrats on Wednesday..
And some people complained that they fell for it (stuck on stupid)
I confess! I am deliberately trying to suppress voters who aren't citizens or legally registered voters. So sue me!
MSMBC: Rat CRap....don't believe it...
This year is the same. Republicans Tuesday, Democrats Wednesday. It works quite well.
attempted to misdirect or confuse them about election day
"So, Mr. Gonzalez. Tell us whom you'll be voting for next Wednesday."
If you don't know where and when to vote, you shouldn't be voting.
Well....as long as the viewer said so. I guess he's an "unimpeachable source"......much like the one Dan Rather had.
We should just go back to parking police cars near the polling stations like they claimed in Floriduh
That would be PMSDNC. (according to Rush)
I'm giving these evil doers up now because the election is almost over and they deserve a knock on the door from the FBI this evening:
212 529 5461
703 573 6811
There they are ~ cops, do your thing!
just laying the groundwork for contesting the elections.
Oh no, Dumocrats were told to vote on Wednesday and believed it!!!
yep, voter intimidation is always charged.
I remember a couple of elections ago, Jesse Jackson complained there was a police roadblock set up to intimidate voters. It turned out the police roadblock was down the road from the polling place, it was part of legitimate law enforcement activity, and was not on the road to the polling place. Traffic going to and from the election site was unaffected.
But truth doesn't matter. It's what side of the political aisle or issues that you are on that matters. That's all we are supposed to care about.
Fox News's Major Garrett and Carl Cameron were saying that this was election was going to be disappointing to Republicans, esp. George Allen. They did not say anything about fraud.
I don't believe any of it.
"There are also allegations that fliers that say, "Skip This Election," are blanketing African-American communities, News4 reported."
Uh-oh, I think I hear the demmie's favorite song "Disenfrancised Voters" warming up in the background!!
Fortunately most of these 'allegations' never amount to anything but hot air...
"Duh. When's election day? Duh. Whom do I vote for?"
"I'm sooo confused."
