    How Florida Gov. Rick Scott could steal the election for Mitt Romney – remember 2000? →

    On Wednesday, November 7, Mitt Romney could wake up as the President-elect thanks to one man: Florida Governor Rick Scott. With little fanfare, Scott is undertaking an audacious plan to kick thousands of Floridians off the ballot just before this year’s elections. It’s a sloppy, chaotic and possibly illegal plan. But it just might work. […] Will history repeat itself in Florida this year? By one estimate, 7000 Florida voters were wrongfully removed from the voter rolls for the 2000 presidential election — 13 times George W. Bush’s margin of victory in that state after the U.S. Supreme Court halted the post-election recount. – Think Progress

    Pennsylvania Republican: Voter ID law is “gonna allow Governor Romney to win” →

    “Pro-Second Amendment? The Castle Doctrine, it’s done. First pro-life legislation – abortion facility regulations – in 22 years, done. Voter ID, which is gonna allow Governor Romney to win the state of Pennsylvania, done.” – House Majority Leader Mike Turzai (R), describing accomplishments of the Pennsylvania legislature at a Republican State Committee meeting in Pennsylvania this weekend.

    The GOP doesn’t want you to vote
Josh Marshall reports that our man Mitt Romney is outraged by expanded voting.

“Romney is attacking the Obama campaign for suing the state of Ohio for restore right to vote early, as was the case in the 2008 election.
“The Romney campaign is arguing that the Obama camp is actually trying to limit military voting. And his supporters are eating the claim up on Facebook, where Romney posted the claim. But as the day goes by even rightwing commentators seem to be realizing that this is simply a lie.
“The whole episode is tailor made to expose how corrupted the press corps is. The entire thing is a demonstrable lie, and all in the service of keeping vote participation as low as possible. In other words, a Fehrnstrom Special.”

Even Fox News acknowledges the purpose of the suit, noting “the lawsuit does not restrict the ability of military personnel to cast their ballots early.”
The Republican Party is working double time to suppress the vote this year, from  Salon – Fla. Republican: We wanted to suppress black votes:

    If election fraud is as “rampant” as Republicans say, where’s the proof? There isn’t any.
Texas’ new ID law permits voters to use concealed-handgun licenses as proof of identity, but not state university IDs. WHOSE VOTE do you suppose Texas is trying to suppress — Republicans or Democrats? This is a travesty of our constitution and the rights of our citizens. Here are some voter suppression facts from Mother Jones…

    Can the GOP suppress enough Democratic votes for a Mitt Romney win?
The voter id statute “is gonna allow Governor Romney to win the state of Pennsylvania” — Republican House Leader Mike Turzai
Raw Story reports on the travesty that is the Republican Party’s voter suppression effort in Pennsylvania:
“Under Pennsylvania’s harsh new voter ID law, as many as 20 percent of voters in the state lack the photo IDs required to cast a vote, an estimated 1,636,168. In Philadelphia alone, however, 437,237 people, a whopping 43 percent of the voting population, may be ineligible to vote under the law, according to The Philadelphia City Paper…
