I'll Take 'Bullshit,' Alex, For $200
The following dose of stupid appeared in today's News-Gazette:
In newspaper advertisements and media releases Thursday, the Judy Myers campaign warned voters of possible voter interference on Election Day by individuals from Chicago.I've smelt nicer wafting up from the South Farms when the wind's coming from that direction. This is so blatantly an exercize in scaring the rural "I hate the city that gets this state any attention whatsoever" voters into coming out and voting against the Dem machine that I wonder whose eyes Myers thinks she's pulling wool over.
Officials with the Myers campaign said the advertisements and media releases were prompted by current rumors and past incidents.
...In a statement released Thursday afternoon, Myers joined other local officials in warning area voters to "keep their eyes open for suspicious activities on Election Day."
"The voters deserve to have an election process that's clean and honest," Myers said in the release, which also quotes Vermilion County Recorder Barb Young and Vermilion County Sheriff Pat Hartshorn.
The release provides information about what suspicious activities voters should look for and how and where to report any such behaviors.
But the advertisement, which ran in Thursday's editions of The News-Gazette, refers to possible interference from Chicago.
The ad reads, "WARNING, Individuals from Chicago may be brought in to interfere with your right to vote. Please be advised that such interference and other election violations can be considered up to a Class 4 felony. If you see such incidents do not hesitate to report the offense to police immediately. Don't be intimidated by Chicago's attempts to keep you from voting."
Besides, Dems generally don't interfere with people voting - that's the GOP's specialty.
