Union Thugs Threaten Citizen Election Watchdogs
The Communist (I do not use that term recklessly) publication People's World has an article full of threats and libel from union thugs and Soros-funded voter fraud deniers directed at law abiding Americans: "Labor raising an 'army of 400,000' for the 2012 elections."
Groups like True the Vote and Judicial Watch are working to cleanse the voter rolls of ineligible and dead voters, using federal laws Eric Holder's Justice Department won't enforce.
Here is Larry Cohen, president of the Communications Workers of America, with an outright fairy tale:
"We know their game," he said, they even have tried to criminalize voter registration -- something that was always considered an act of good citizenship. We will not be deterred. If necessary we will be arrested, if that's what it takes, to register voters -- if that's what it takes to protect democracy."
Criminalize voter registration? Where? How? Note carefully the threat of lawlessness. Cohen can't help it. A union scorpion will remain a union scorpion. Another union scorpion, Arlene Holt-Baker of the AFL-CIO adds her threats:
The tea party groups, like the so called "Election Integrity" group in Maryland match names on the voter rolls to all kinds of other databases, including property tax information, arrest records or anything else they can find. Similar groups are at work in at least 30 states.
"We will work with our allies and coalition partners to stop this form of vote suppression," said Holt Baker.
Some bad news, Arlene. First, too late. The work is already done or well along. And though it might not matter to you, the work of these groups is perfectly legal and protected by federal law which allows private actions to clean up the voter rolls. But the law has never been much of a deterrent to the particular species of muscle your organization relies upon.
