***SPUTTER*** How much can it cost to print a poster for each polling place? It doesn't call for any fancy graphics -- just a message in clear block letters: IF YOU DO NOT FOLLOW THE SIMPLE DIRECTIONS GIVEN IN THE BOOTH, YOUR VOTE WILL NOT COUNT
Well, guess who jumped to have these posters banned... The ACLU! Guess why... the posters are discriminatory to minorities!
I swear to god its true.
The questions in the Justice Department's letter echo those the American Civil Liberties Union of Florida raised in a federal lawsuit it filed last week in Miami. The group compared the responsibilities' reminder to "study and know candidates and issues" to literacy tests that were used in past generations to prevent African-Americans from voting.
Follow written directions? Unfair to the Democratic base!
