The Pits: Georgia’s GOP Swipes the Peach State

for SuicideGirls.com – November 5, 2008

The evil little &*%$’s are doing it again.

Even as they drown in the anger of platoons of pissed-off voters, Republican operatives are swiping ballots with both hands.

Ground zero is Georgia.  It’s here where the sick little vulture named Saxby Chambliss won the US Senate seat six years ago by calling his Democratic opponent, a guy who’d lost three limbs in Vietnam, a friend of Osama bin Laden.

There’s no way in hell that Chambliss can slime his way back into the Senate in the face of over half a million newly registered voters (Black and young – 69% for Obama) without jacking them out of their votes.  That’s what the Republicans are up to.  Right now.  As we speak.

Over 50,000 the new voters in Georgia have been blocked from voting by using a nasty little new law, the Help America Vote Act signed by George Bush.  (Bush is helping us vote – look out!)

I just got this from Christina Rush in the Peach Pit state:

“They really have stolen my vote and I don’t know what to do about it at this late stage. I just found out 2 days ago that I do not exist on the voters rolls in Georgia. I have disappeared. After calling 866-OUR VOTE and the Secretary of State (for GA), it has been determined that the last vote I was accounted for was the 1996 General Election. That’s awfully strange to me, considering that I voted in the recent Primaries and that last two General Elections (2000 and 2004).”

“Everyone is ‘very sorry’ this is happening, but no one can tell what I can do to make my vote count for THIS election. The only advice I’ve been given is to fill out a new voters registration form and I’ll be eligible for any future elections, just not THIS one.”

“So, what can I do except tell anyone and everyone who will listen?”

And no one is going to listen to you or the other 50,000 dumped voters in Georgia.

But here’s the good news:  it won’t save them.  The GOP is toast. Paint the White House black and blue and Congress the same hue.

But the steal in Senate races may allow the GOP to savage, obstruct, …more
