Think that Gary Trudeau was joking in today’s excellent Doonesbury strip? Think again.
The Republican National Committee has set up a "vote fraud" page at its web site http://www.gop.com/ycmtu.htm, and the GOP’s media arm at Fox News has been promoting a "voter fraud" hotline (firstname.lastname@example.org) for several weeks now. The Raw Story | Dead voters: Fox continues to push ‘voter fraud’ claims
I’m pretty sure that it is a violation of federal law for a political party to coordinate its unlawful "voter suppression" efforts (The RNC is still subject to a court order for past violations of law) with a federally licensed broadcast network, but someone with far greater knowledge of the arcane FEC and FCC rules and regulations will have to examine this.
This blog’s friend Brad Friedman at BradBlog has taken a particular interest in Fox’s "voter fraud" investigations. He enthusiastically endorses that readers feel free to email Fox News this link: http://www.bradblog.com/CoulterFraud documenting the one actual case of voter fraud by Ann Coulter in Palm Beach County, Florida.
