Lying Liars, Cheats, Scum

Yes, I'm talking about neocon-ish Republicans. No doubt Mr. Schattenkirk would approve of this:

The state attorney general's office is investigating a letter received by some Southern California Hispanics that says it is a crime for immigrants to vote and tells them they could be jailed or deported if they go to the polls next month.[...]

The letter, written in Spanish, tells recipients: "You are advised that if your residence in this country is illegal or you are an immigrant, voting in a federal election is a crime that could result in jail time."

As Ezra Klein correctly points out:
Of course, naturalized immigrants, of which there are millions, can legally vote. It's just that some folks don't want them to.

Had Enough of this bullshit? Vote Democratic.
