Big News--No Coverage

The Rove Political Machine is stealing the 2008 election, there is evidence, and the BBC is reporting it, but there is NOTHING in U.S. newspapers or TV News. Only online outlets seem to be covering this story.

This appears to be what the U.S. Attorney firing cover up was designed to cover up.
I heard Greg Palast talking to Randi Rhodes last night.

Go read about it. I've already written to my "representatives" in Congress and the Senate. Do your part and tell your representatives that you don't like the idea of political operatives manipulating our justice system so that they can deprive Americans of their right to vote. It is especially disgusting that they seemed to be targeting American Servicepeople who were in Iraq and taking them off the voter rolls (only the black military personnel, by the way, who vote Democratic more often than not).

Tim Griffin, formerly right hand man to Karl Rove, resigned Thursday as US Attorney for Arkansas hours after BBC Television ‘Newsnight’ reported that Congressman John Conyers requested the network’s evidence on Griffin’s involvement in ‘caging voters.’ Greg Palast, reporting for BBC Newsnight, obtained a series of confidential emails from the 2004 Bush-Cheney campaign. In these emails, Griffin, then the GOP Deputy Communications Director, transmitted so-called ‘caging lists’ of voters to state party leaders.
Experts have concluded the caging lists were designed for a mass challenge of voters’ right to cast ballots. The caging lists were heavily weighted with minority voters including homeless individuals, students and soldiers sent overseas.
Conyers, Chairman of the House Judiciary Committee investigating the firing of US Attorneys, met Thursday evening in New York with Palast. After reviewing key documents, Conyers stated that, despite Griffin’s resignation, “We’re not through with him by any means.”
Conyers indicated to the BBC that he thought it unlikely that Griffin could carry out this massive ‘caging’ operation without the knowledge of White House Deputy Chief of Staff Rove.

You know it's got me pissed off because here I am blogging on the weekend, something I almost never do. How many times do we let this group of neocons subvert our Constitution and steal our Government?
If we keep the Internet chatter going on this story, maybe, just maybe the "mainstream media" will decide to pick it up. But maybe not because it does not fit on a bumpersticker very well.
SUPPORT OUR TROOPS: Just not the black Democrats who need to have their voting rights taken away.
