BEWARE OF REPUBLICAN HOAX!!!!!!!!
GOP Floating Fake Election Regulations in MD
The GOP, never satisfied with a fair election on the issues, is floating emails detailing fake election regulations designed specifically to worry and demoralize Obama voters in MD.
The text of the email I just received:
FYI......If by chance you are not of this, I just called the Board of Elections in Maryland and confirmed that you cannot come within 100 feet of the voting polls wearing any garment that shows the candidate you are supporting/voting for.
I see a lot of Obama hats and ***. It is important that people are aware of this.
Please spread the word...
We looked it up and this is true!
This morning I heard on the Steve Harvey show that on the day of elections you CANT show up to vote wearing any thing that show’s who you are voting for....like Obama T-***, buttons, or anything like that or you will be turned away. They say it’s against the law, and a lot of people don’t know that so please spread the word.
As though lies about McCain's positions and Obama's weren't enough, as though a bit of voter caging here and there weren't illegal, the GOP continues it's whisper campaign of misinformation. In this case, by claiming in the email that the information comes from The Steve Harvey Morning Show, the GOP is trying to influence black voters to stay away from the polls, and to generally make it look like there is less support for Obama on election day. Obviously this is targetted specifically towards black voters. I especially like how they've made it look like someone actually followed up on the rumor.
I did, and the MD Board of elections is aware of it. Doing something? We'll see.
Remember, the GOP can't win in a fair fight, which is why Barack is changing the whole game.
