Republican Voter Fraud

Fucking outrageous. Salon's War Room gives us the heads up on the destruction of Democratic voter registration forms in Nevada:

From KLAS TV in Las Vegas -- and isn't it heartening to see a local TV I-team actually report on something other than exposes of local strip clubs or the latest household item that can kill you?: "Two former workers say they personally witnessed company supervisors rip up and trash registration forms signed by Democrats."

"'We caught her taking Democrats out of my pile, handed them to her assistant and he ripped them up right in front of us. I grabbed some of them out of the garbage and she tells her assistant to get those from me,' said Eric Russell, former Voters Outreach employee. Eric Russell managed to retrieve a pile of shredded paperwork including signed voter registration forms, all from Democrats. We took them to the Clark County Election Department and confirmed that they had not, in fact, been filed with the county as required by law."

"So the people on those forms who think they will be able to vote on Election Day are sadly mistaken. We attempted to speak to Voters Outreach but found that its office has been rented out to someone else."

Perhaps Ralph Nader knows where Voters Outreach went, because, as Josh Marshall points out, it appears the same company worked for him in Arizona.

I'll post any update I get from our guy on the ground in Las Vegas. In the meantime, check out the full Salon article because they also document Republican voter fraud in Oregon and South Dakota. And apparently, it's happening in Wisconsin as well. More later.
