"Baby, you can drive my car...

Yes, I’m gonna be a [political] star” …well, more or less anyway. But according to the new report on the last presidential campaign from the American Center for Voting Rights Legislative Fund, if you happen to be a Republican and you do “drive that car,” check your tires:

The ACVR Legislative Fund report, “Vote Fraud, Intimidation & Suppression In The 2004 Presidential Election,” finds that while Democrats routinely accuse Republicans of voter intimidation and suppression, neither party has a clean record on the issue. The report finds that paid Democrat operatives were far more involved in voter intimidation and suppression activities than were their Republican counterparts during the 2004 presidential election. Examples include paid Democrat operatives charged with slashing tires on GOP get-out-the-vote vans in Milwaukee and an Ohio court order stopping Democrat operatives from calling voters telling them the wrong date for the election and faulty polling place information.
