RFK, Jr.: 'Tim Griffin should be in jail.'

Posted By on Thu, Aug 30, 2012 at 1:41 PM

In the wake of Tim Griffin's speech on Tuesday at the Republican National Convention, investigative reporter Greg Palast and the website Nation of Change allowed Civil Rights attorney Robert F. Kennedy Jr. to review a series of "confidential" Republican National Committee e-mails from August 2004 dealing with Griffin's role in alleged instances of vote caging in Florida prior to the presidential election — emails Palast claims were forwarded by a source from Griffin's own computer.

From Palast's article: "The RNC sent letters by the thousands to soldiers, first class, marked, 'DO NOT FORWARD.' When the letters were returned undelivered, the Republicans planned to use these 'caged' envelopes as evidence the voters were "fraudulent"—then challenge their ballot. A soldier mailing in his or her vote from Iraq would have that ballot disqualified — and the soldier wouldn't even know it."

RFK, Jr.'s conclusion after his review of the e-mails: Griffin should be in the Ironbar Hotel, not Congress.
