When counting the votes isn't enough

Posted By on Tue, Apr 14, 2009 at 1:36 PM

Republicans will go to any length to prevent seating of duly elected Democrats.

See Minnesota and the now-until-doomsday legal challenge of Al Franken's victory.

See New York, where the ghost of Tim Griffin is madly trying to cage and disqualify presumed Democratic voters in the tight recount of a congressional race. (Presumed on account of Jewish heritage or college residency.)  

I remember when a Republican named Huckabee -- Sarah -- rightly challenged some Democratic Arkansas election officials for making it difficult for Arkadelphia college students to vote. Perhaps she'd like to help the college kids in upstate N.Y. retain their franchise, though probably not, since Huck's Army campaigned for the trailing Repub.
