Tim Griffin: Cager

Posted By on Mon, Feb 1, 2010 at 5:34 AM

Tim Griffin, Republican candidate for 2nd District Congress, had his fingerprints all over a Republican vote "caging" operation in Florida -- a sophisticated effort to disqualify likely Democratic voters from casting votes for president in 2004. He says it's not true. His own e-mails say otherwise.

Is it much of an issue in this race? Not in the primary, certainly. The poor, black vote -- target of the suppression effort -- will be minimal in the Republican contest. In the general election? Still probably not a major issue except as a "tell" on the candidate's past if he wins the nomination. It's old and complicated to explain. Nonetheless, the Democratic campaign apparatus continues to work it -- the latest this video.

    Look, the Great Campus Rape Crisis was mainly hype all along. What Vice President Joe Biden described as an epidemic of sexual violence sweeping American college campuses in 2011 was vastly overstated.
