10.15.08 — KENNEDY TOWNSEND: ACORN SMEAR HIDES MASSIVE GOP VOTE SUPPRESSION PUSH — The ongoing Republican attack on the lawful voter registration efforts of ACORN is a “desperate smokescreen maneuver” masking an extensive coast-to-coast GOP push to disenfranchise hundreds of thousands of voters through a wide range of vote suppression tactics, according to Kathleen Kennedy Townsend, former lieutenant governor of the state of Maryland.

Urging concerned Americans to get involved through NoVoterLeftBehind.net, Kennedy Townsend said: “The attack on the voter registration efforts of ACORN may go down in the record books as the ultimate case of the ‘dirty’ pot calling the ‘clean’ kettle black. ACORN is being savaged for doing its duty to openly self-report all cases where there may be any kind of issue with specific voter registration forms. By contrast, the GOP is skulking around out of the public eye across the nation in a sub rosa attempt to use a host of outrageous and desperate vote suppression tactics to steal the election. For every potentially problematic ACORN voter registration form that will never result in anyone casting an illegitimate vote, there are literally hundreds of voters who the GOP will go to any lengths to keep out of the voting booth. This attack on ACORN is a sad and deeply cynical tactic coming from a party that seems to have concluded that they can’t win the election on their own, so they have to prevent the other side from voting.” Make sure to check out the full news release from Kennedy Townsend! …
