I know that my local communists, Julia Carson, is safe as can be. Every election there are a few precincts that always report last and they always have just enough votes to put her over the top in close elections. We can't even get people to work the polls in some of her precincts because it is not safe to be in those neighborhoods if you are white and/or Republican. The Sheriff used to send in workers, but they stopped that a few years ago. So now there are a good number of voting locations in Julia's district that are manned by her people only. Of course I would never want to insinuate that there is anything amiss going on at those polling places;), only that the aren't being watched. I tried to get a letter in the local newspaper two cycles ago pointing out her affliation, but they wouldn't print it.
It is rough to live in a district like that. Peter DeFazio is our congress critter and will doubtless be re-elected but we will register our votes against him and for the Republicans in the statewide races.
