Posted on 09/19/2008 1:39:19 PM PDT by steve-b
House Judiciary Committee Chairman John Conyers (D-Mich.) told John McCain's campaign Friday to take control over its supporters following reports that a Republican county chairman in Michigan planned to use lists of recently foreclosed residents to block them from voting
"It is beyond disgraceful that the Republican Party now seems to be targeting those who are suffering the most," Conyers said. "It appears that individuals who can't recall how many houses they own don't understand how awful it is to lose your home to foreclosure, and don't know that you don't need to own property to vote in the United States of America."
"It should surprise no one that the people who gave us the worst economy since the Great Depression would now want to prevent those victimized by this economy from voting in the coming elections. Senator McCain needs to step forward now and halt the Republican Party's efforts to profit politically from the economic misery of others."
In a letter sent to the McCain, Conyers asked the Arizona senator to "repudiate any efforts of the Republican Party and any of its state affiliates to engage in voter suppression and intimidation tactics."
Conyers, the most corrupt vile racist, playing the race card. What a surprise.
They really hate it when the LAW sticks it right up their .....
Squeels on a Pig?
And I demands reparations!
How interesting - Conyers wants McCain to repudiate, reject, and denounce voter intimidation at the same time Barack Hussein Obama is encourage his supporters to do so.
Conyers to McCain: Our vote fraud is off limits.
Tell a lie often enough, and it becomes truth...
If you lose your house...your not living there anymore.
If your not living there anymore, why should you be voting there?
If these people become “homeless” and move to a new state, can they vote twice? Why not? Are you a racist McCain? No 2 votes, no peace!!!
Reports from where? Sorry, Conyers, until you provide some evidence, I'm not buying it.
Unfortunately, Since the GOP probably won't take back the Senate and even though they may take back the House, any electoral vote challenge in a split situation would go back to the Governor.
McCain should tell him fine - he will do it, if Obama guarentees only live Democrats will be voting in Chicage.
Conyers should get get a handle on those perennial underachievers of vote fraud, the Democrat sponsored ACORN.
What, are they being investigated now in 4 or 5 states?
OK so Conyers is saying you should move to another address and still be allowed to vote for the old address?
And BTW some other potential voters who now live at your old address may be prevented from voting.
what is the Law you are referring to??
I'm sure he'll start bitching and moaning regarding "voter suppression" on January 21, 2009 in anticipation of the 2012 presidential election.
the worst economy since the Great Depression .... Gee Whiz! Where did I hear this before? Last election cycle?
Is he still taking money from the KGB? The democrat party has been full infiltarted by communists.
“The Worst Economy Since Jimmy Carter” just doesn’t have the same ring to it....
Conyers should worry about his wife, Monica, the new Detroit City Council chairperson. She will be INDICTED by the Feds and GOING TO JAIL pretty soon for taking bribes...allegedly caught on tape. She is a vile and despicable person.
This might be worth reading if Conyers wasn’t a horse a$$.
