STAMFORD -- A plan formulated by the U.S. Senate campaign of Linda McMahon to pay students an extra $5 for each Republican registered during a voter registration drive at the University of Connecticut next week has drawn questions from election officials, lawmakers and at least one Republican vying for the nomination . . .

"It's a practice that the Justice Department has frowned upon," Av Harris, spokesman for the Secretary of the State's office, which oversees voter registration, said . . .

Another case of “It is OK when the Democrats do it” strikes again.

yup...listen to our partisan Sec of State. The DOJ “frowns upon” something. Some rule of law, huh? Be careful or Eric Holder will frown on you.

Who’s she trying to fool? Does anyone honestly think they won’t be pushing their own candidate? This is a McMahon campaign drive.

How long and how much could it cost to register Republicans at UConn anyways? Couple hours, a few dozens students, hundred bucks tops. But then Pro-Wrestling is popular with Democrats. Perhaps Linda McMahon will make inroads with that demographic:

I'm going to UConn today to watch the baseball team play a double header against Rutgers. It will probably be a good sized crowd given UConn is on a 19 game winning streak(longest in the naiton) and both teams are vying for first place in the Big East. I'm sure they could sign up students by having a booth at this event and it wouldn't coat them a dime.

It sure is A-OK when the Dems do it, or when Holder's
DOJ-protected troops threaten or attack voters.

Good idea. Should be done elsewhere. See the graphic in reply #4? College basketball skews heavily Republican. Which, of course, you already know...lol..

Amazing graphic. No wonder the lefty loons don’t understand anything that actually goes in the country.

If I understand your graphic, the lefties are big on Tennis and Women’s Basketball. Why am I not surprised?
